Construction Technician, Others Get Glo Festival of Joy Prizes in Onitsha

Construction Technician, Others Get Glo Festival of Joy Prizes in Onitsha

Olushola Okunlade Writes

The story of Chukwuemeka Chikezie, a Glo subscriber who presented brand new car in the Glo Festival of Joy promo in Onitsha on Wednesday is as interesting as the star prize that he won.

Scores of other subscribers also took home Power Generating sets, Sewing Machines and
Rechargeable Fans.

The 30-year-old Construction Technician is impaired in his left arm from a job-related accident he had in 2019. But despite that setback, Chikezie has never wavered in working to provide an assured future for himself. He lost his father in the aftermath of that occupational
travail.

On Tuesday, when he was called, he was working on a project in Enugu, far away from his Onitsha base. Chikezie was sweating it out on his work when he received the life-transforming call. 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 it”, he said, adding that “I love the Glo network very well and I have always depended on it for my calls and data needs” Chikezie was full of praise for Glo for transforming his life through the car prize.

The travails that led to his being unable to use his left hand were enough to make anyone lose hope, but he never gave up. Winners of other items were equally grateful to Glo for their winnings.

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.

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.

The Transition Chairman, Onitsha South Local Govt Area, Anambra State, Hon. Emeka Orji, expressed happiness that the event was held within his jurisdiction. He commended Globacom for putting the promo in place.

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 the 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 for to win for being on the network.
