Globacom presents six Kia Picanto, other prizes in Kano

Remmy Nweke

AT a carnival-like occasion, the Second National Operator (SNO) Globacom, last Tuesday, gave six Kia Picanto cars, six 5KVA generators and 48 cheques of N25,000 each, to lucky winners who emerged in a draw held on June 2, this year.

The winners emerged in the Glo 180 cars in 180 days promotion, just as the presentation was made by the former executive governor, Kano State, Mr. Kabiru Gaya, who handed over keys to some of the winners, expressing delight that SNO brought its generosity to the northern region of the country.

“I am delighted that this kind of thing is coming this way,” he said.

Equally at hand to present prizes was the crown prince, Kano emirate and district head of Daula, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

The six winners include Mr. Simeon Emmanuel, a policeman, Mr. Kazeem Olatunji from Bauchi State, Zakare Adamu from Kaduna, Mr Matthew Anya and Mr. Gbenga Kayode from Kano State.

According to one of the winners, Mr. Emmanuel, Glo has doubled his joy as he said that the draw came a day after his wife was delivered of a baby boy.

Also favoured by the promo in terms of consolation prizes include James Onoja, a soldier in the Nigerian Army, Olubukola Olukoya, Chinwe Eze, Ibrahim Yusuf, Saidu Abubakar.

Speaking at the occasion, the regional manager Kano at Globacom, Mr. Femi Ogunlusi, noted that indeed, the SNO is putting back into the Nigerian society part of its profit through the promotion.

ITRealms Online recalled that just a fortnight ago, about 60 winners received various prizes in Ibadan.

Till date, 32 cars, cash prizes worth N2.4 million and 12 5KVA generating sets have been given out in the Glo Jumbo promo, even as the next set of draws will hold in Port Harcourt and Ilorin.
