Foremost telecommunications firm, Globacom, yesterday, presented another set of prizes to winners in Onitsha, Anambra State, in its ongoing Festival of Joy promo.
Thirty-year-old construction technician, Chukwuemeka Chikezie, received keys to a brand new car, while others went home with different home appliances, including power generating sets, sewing machines and rechargeable fans.
The grand prize winner, who is impaired in his left arm from a job-related accident, stated: “If anyone had told me yesterday that I would be a car owner today, I would never have believed,” adding: “I love the Glo network very well and I have always depended on it for my calls and data needs.”
Chikezie, who lauded the firm for transforming his life, explained that he received the confirmatory call on Tuesday while working on a project in Enugu, far away from his Onitsha base, stating: “I found it difficult that I could become an instant car winner just like that.”
He said the travails leading to his being unable to use his left hand were enough to make anyone lose hope, but he never gave up.
Speaking at the event, Transition Chairman of Onitsha South Local Council, Emeka Orji, who commended Globacom for putting the promo in place, expressed his joy that the occasion held in his territory.
Also, representative of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Ezelue Nnamdi, stated that the promo has been very transparent all through.
The event was by also attended by member representing Onitsha South 2 Constituency, Anambra State House of Assembly, Mrs. Beverly Ikpeazu-Nkemdiche and Nollywood stars, Ebube Nwagbo and Stephen Odimgbe (Flashboy).
