The Abuja winner of Globacom’s Festival of Joy promo house, Chukwu Reuben Okorie, has described the company as the ultimate dream-maker.
The 48-year-old businessman, who hails from Bende Local Government Area of Abia State, on Friday received the keys to the house located in one of the choice areas of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, from Glo officials and an Assistant Chief Administrative Officer of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission, Mrs. Mariam Imam.
Okorie who was ecstatic over his fortune said, “Globacom is a network that fulfills dreams”. He kept begging Glo staff at the presentation ceremony “to please wake me up from this dream. This is too good to be true. This is too much for me to contain”.
It was after he collected the keys to his new house and took possession of the property that it finally dawned on him that it was a reality that Globacom had made him a landlord.
“From one bedroom in the interior part of the city, Glo has made me a landlord of a whole three-bedroom apartment with a two-room bungalow in the Federal Capital Territory. It is only possible with Glo”, he screamed as he rolled on the floor of the house full of joy.
Globacom’s Regional Manager, North Central, Mr. Kazeem Kemi Kaka, said the company was aware that shelter is one of the key needs in life, and that this was what informed its decision to help some of its subscribers own houses of their own through the promo.
The Glo Festival of Joy promo is offering 20 lucky subscribers the opportunity to become landlords or landladies, while 24 subscribers will also win Kia cars. There are also thousands of other prizes such as power-generating sets, sewing machines, and rechargeable fans being offered in the promotion.
The Assistant Chief Administrative Officer of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission, Mrs. Mariam Imam, said the commission was pleased with Globacom’s transparency in the promo.
The Director General, National Council of Arts and Culture, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, who was Special Guest of Honour at the ceremony observed that such empowerment schemes from Globacom will help stem the tide of crime in the nation.
“Globacom has consistently displayed concern for the plight of common Nigerians. We are proud of the company as well as its Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga Jr.”, he added.
