Glo rewards loyal clients

18 October 2013, 14:35

A handbag designer emerged the biggest winner in the Recharge to Stardom Promotion, run by Globacom, the mobile network company.

Obafamemi Olayebi pocketed N5 million (US$30 000) during a ceremony the company held at its headquarters in Lagos.

Others like Kazeem Obigbesan, a driver, Abolade Agboola, a stockbroker, Ayodeji Olatunjoye, an engineer and Ibikunle Ademoyo, a medical representative went home with N1 million each.

Other lucky subscribers won N10 000 each at the occasion.

Olayebi, who danced in delight at being named the winner, expressed surprise at the win.

“I did not believe I had won initially. Later, I was dumbfounded. This N5 million is definitely an unmerited, underserved and uncommon favour from God. I want to thank Glo and its management for this wonderful gift,” she said.

Sharing his experience with the audience, Abolade, the stockbroker said he ignored the call initially before responding at the fifth ring.

“Here I am today with my N1 million prize. It is great to have an enterprise like Glo that is working to change the lives of its subscribers. Everyone should patronise this company that has made Nigerians proud,” he said.

Speaking at the occasion, the Head of Gloworld, Brenda Akhigbe, said the presentation was in continuation of the consistent effort by Glo to redeem its promise to its valued subscribers across the country.

She pointed out that Glo had recently presented prizes to its subscribers in other cities in the country.

“A week ago at the popular Oluwole market in Lagos Island and at Oyingbo market, we presented prizes to many winners including Danladi Adams, an ice-block seller in Ajegunle who won N5 million. We also gave out N1 million each to several other winners,” she said.
