Fifty three lucky Glo subscribers who emerged winners in the ongoing Glo “Recharge to Stardom” promo were on Saturday, August 12, presented with cheques ranging from N10,000 to N5 million.
The winners who were full of gratitude to Glo for organising a special promo for subscribers on its 10th anniversary said that it was “great joy” being a subscriber on the Glo network. They praised Glo for giving its subscribers the lowest tariffs and call rates offered by any network in Nigeria and for rewarding them with cash prizes from time to time.
The winners include Timothy Asianya, a young communications engineer from Enugu, who won N5million; Simon Anyanwu, a businessman from Port Harcourt, and Julius Okomayin, a pensioner from Edo State who won N1million each. Twenty-five other lucky subscribers won N25,000 each while cash prizes of N10,000 were presented to another twenty-five lucky subscribers.
Speaking at the prize-presentation to winners before a crowd of over 3,000 people during the Glo Slide and Bounce concert held at Oriental Hotel in Lagos, the winners said their lives would be changed forever by the gesture from Glo.
Asianya, who stated that he simply continued to recharge his phone before winning the N5million prize, expressed confidence in the transparency of Glo promos as he had seen and interacted with winners in previous promos.
“I am overjoyed, happy and thankful to Glo. My mum found it difficult to believe that I won, but I had no doubt in my mind because I had seen and interacted with the winner of a Toyota Venza in a previous Glo promo”, he said.
Then there is the touching story of Pa Julius Okomayin which demonstrated that age or location cannot prevent anyone from winning in the promo. A pensioner who had worked as Secretary to the Onojie of Ekpoma for the past 25 years, Okomayin was on his way to Lagos to collect his pension when he received a call from Glo that he had won the sum of N1milion.
“I have been using Glo for the past 10 years and I always replace my line every time I lose it. However, I never knew I could win this kind of money. I pray that Glo will continue to grow so they can create more opportunities for more people in Nigeria”, he said.
Prizes were presented to the winners by special dignitaries that included the Lagos state Commissioner for Transport, Comrade Kayode Opeifa, Edo state Commissioner for Information, Hon. Louis Odion, Delta state Commissioner for Oil & Gas, Hon. Mofe Pirah and the Lagos state Commissioner for Tourism and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Hon. Disun Holloway. Others who presented prizes at the event included Ahaji Garba Bello Kankarofi, Registrar, APCON, Assistant Director, National Lottery Regulatory Commission, Fidelis Ajibogun, and Senior Manager, Compliance, Monitoring and Enforcement of the NCC, Lawrence Abang.
The Glo “Recharge to Stardom” promo offers thousands of loyal subscribers on the network the opportunity to win various prizes ranging from N10,000 up to the grand prize of N25 million by participating in the promo.
Prepaid and post-paid Glo subscribers who recharge with N200 and above during the promo period stand a chance of winning any of the prizes ranging from N10,000 to N1million, while subscribers who recharge up to N5,000 during the promo period stand a chance of winning the grand prize of N25million.
