A 30-year-old Construction Technician, Chukwuemeka Chikezie, has taken home a brand new car in the ongoing Glo Festival of Joy promo in Onitsha, Anambra State.
The car was presented to him by Hon. (Mrs) Beverly Ikpeazu-Nkemdiche, representing Onitsha South 2 Constituency, Anambra State House of Assembly, assisted by Glo officials. Many other Nigerians also went home with different other prizes won in the promo, including power generating sets, sewing machines and rechargeable fans.
Chikezie, who was impaired in his left arm from a job-related accident he had in 2019, disclosed that when he was called the previous day following the draws, he was working on a project in Enugu, far away from his Onitsha base. Despite that, he found it difficult that he could become an instant car winner just like that.
Till he got the keys to the car on Wednesday at an elaborate ceremony held at the Gloworld premises at Conoil station, Onitsha Bridgehead, Chikezie was hesitant to believe he had become a car owner.
“If anyone had told me yesterday that I would be a car owner today, I would never have believed”, he said, adding that “I love the Glo network very well and I have always depended on it for my calls and data needs”.
Anielue Arinze, who won a generator, disclosed that he never expected such winning at this time. He disclosed that the generator will be very useful for him, especially in the heat period. On his part, Ezeji Uzoma Noble, who won a Sewing Machine, expressed gratitude to Globacom for the prize he won.
Speaking after the presentation, Hon. (Mrs) Beverly Ikpeazu-Nkemdiche, representing Onitsha South 2 Constituency, Anambra State House of Assembly, disclosed that her first number upon returning to Nigeria some years ago, was a Glo number. She commended Globacom for its support to its subscribers through the life changing prizes in the promo.
Representative of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Mr Ezelue Nnamdi, said the Commission was happy with Globacom for its transparency in the conduct of the promo draws and the presentation of prizes to winner.
The event was also graced by two of Glo brand influencers, Ebube Nwagbo and Stephen Odimgbe (Flashboy) who both enjoined more people to join the Glo network to have access to a wide array of excellent products and services apart from the life changing prizes they stand to win for being on the network..
