It was another moment of joy and celebrations in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Friday as a lawyer, Chimeka Woke, received the keys to a 3-bedroom apartment won in the ongoing Festival of Joy promo packaged by the foremost digital services company, Globacom.
The 26-year -old Woke, a father of one, said he could not believe his ears when he received a call from Globacom. According to him, he had just dropped off his recuperating father in the hospital for a physiotherapy session and was waiting when his phone rang only to be told that he had won a 3-bedroom apartment.
“I literally abandoned my dad and ran to the Glo office on Aba road just to be sure I heard well”, he said, adding that “ it sounded too good to be true for someone staying in his father’s Boys’ Quarters to be called and told he had just won a house”.
Woke who was full of gratitude to Globacom for initiating and sustaining the Festival of Joy promo said, “ It was as if God and Globacom were monitoring me”, adding that he had been thinking in the last few weeks on how to mobilize funds to rent an apartment that his small family of wife and daughter would move into.
The chairman of Ahoada Local Government Area, Barrister Ben Eke, paid glowing tribute to Globacom, which he said had a reputation for giving back to society. He said, “For giving people opportunity to own a house, I must congratulate you. I am going to be your ambassador in propagating your good works”.
Also Eze Orlu Ekpodota 1, His Royal Highness, Eze (Dr) Anugbom Onuhua said “for what Globacom has done today, I am going to be an ambassador of the company, telling people what you are doing”.
