Formerly the Kaiser Willhelm Cup, the glittering prize was donated in 1914 by the then-German Ambassador to Nigeria, to be competed for by high-goal teams from Nigeria and Cameroun.

Speaking on the partnership, O’tega Ogra, Director of Corporate Communications at BUA Group said, “Polo, which is popularly called “The Game of Kings and the King of Games” is a game that is marked by a beautiful display of strength, character, professionalism, mastery, and teamwork – values we share at BUA. “We believe the Lagos International Polo Tournament embodies the full experience of the game, and as a proudly African organization with roots in Nigeria, BUA Group is proud to once again partner with the Lagos International Polo Tournament, which is the most prestigious Polo Tournament in West Africa.”

“Our key brands including two of Africa’s top 10 largest companies, BUA Cement and BUA Foods will be on the ground to host various activations during the tournament, he added.”

Rotimi Makanjuola, Polo Captain, Lagos Polo Club said the tournament will have both Nigerian and foreign teams compete in four main cups, namely; Open Cup, from January 28 to February 5; Majekodunmi Cup, from February 7 to 12; Low Cup, from February 7 to 19 and the Silver Cup, from February 14 to 19. He further added that the tournament is going to be exciting and colourful to experience.

According to Makanjuola “For this year, we have 30 teams playing in the 4 different cups, we have 13 in the silver cup, 14 in the Low Cup, 8 in the Open Cup, and 3 in the Majekodunmi Cup.  This season is also going to be very special because we have young players that are coming to play in their first-ever tournament which will also be televised via the internationally recognized PoloCam TV”.

The Lagos Polo Club was founded in 1904 in Lagos state, Nigeria, and has over the years, hosted tournaments between different groups across the world, drawing the interest of the sporting community, business leaders, polo lovers, and entrepreneurs to their doorstep.

The car prize winner who is a Kano-based businessman, Anas Yusuf Adamu, spoke about the shock that enveloped him a day earlier when Glo officials called to inform him that he had won a brand new Kia car in the promo.

Said he: “I first got a call in the evening from the Glo office that I had won a car. I almost did not believe it because my phone was switched off all day. When they however told me to come to the Gloworld office on Murtala Mohammed Way in Kano, it dawned on me it is real”. He added that the car prize from Globacom is a great empowerment for his family and business as he had never owned a car before.

Kano State Commissioner for Finance, Alhaji Adamu Fanda, also praised the efforts of the telecommunications giant in giving out so many valuable prizes to its subscribers in Kano State. “Globacom is setting a good example of what corporate citizenship should be.

After 3 hours of doubting, Glo promo House winner turns up to claim prize

Olushola Okunlade Writes

Globacom on Friday in Abuja presented the keys to a three-bedroom house to yet another winner in the Festival of Joy promotion, Ridwan Ajamu Bello.

The latest Glo-made landlord, who was called up earlier after the draw on Thursday and told about his new fortune, had refused to show up for over three hours, thinking it was a scam.

It took the intervention of officials of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) to convince the 28-year-old Mathematics graduate of Ekiti State University that he had indeed won a house in the Glo promo.

Several Glo officials, Adekanye Sunday and Iheanachor Chikodi of NLRC as well as Ibrahim Mahmud of NCC all took turns speaking to the subscriber on phone to persuade him to come over to Globacom office.

Scores of Glo subscribers, including the Chairman of ThisDay Editorial Board, Mr. Segun Adeniyi, who was at the shop to transact business, stayed back to see if the “doubting Thomas” would eventually show up.

When Bello finally arrived at Gloworld on Aminu Kano Crescent, he spent some time prostrating and apologizing for keeping everyone waiting. “Please forgive me. At first, it was difficult to believe. You know how these days we have a lot of people claiming to be what they are not, all kinds of scam calls. But when I started getting calls from different people from Glo and then the NCC and NLRC people also speaking and asking me to come to Globacom office, I now thought that this could actually be my lucky day. I thank Glo for this opportunity, it’s beyond what I can express”, Bello stated.

At the presentation event at the location of the house in the Galadimawa area of Abuja on Friday, he came with friends and family members to take possession of his house. He thus joins scores of other Glo subscribers who have emerged as winners of houses, brand-new cars, and other valuable prizes in the promotion in cities such as Lagos, Ijebu Ode, Ibadan, Benin, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Warri, and Jos.

Guests of honour at the ceremony, Senator Amos Bulus Kilawangs and former Director General of NLRC, Mr. Peter Igho, commended Globacom for showing a high level of integrity and transparency in the promo. “There are so many companies in Nigeria, but Glo has shown it is second to none in CSR. What I feel inside of me is beyond what I can express”, the Senator said.

Mr. Igho, on his part, said, “Glo has stood up as a true Nigerian champion. I commend the company for putting a roof over the heads of so many Nigerians.”
