22 winners get cars on Win & Rule promo

In conformation of lifting of ban on its Win and Rule promo by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC), Glo Mobile, Tuesday in Lagos presented 22 cars to their respective winners in continuation of the promo which was stopped early in the year.

In his remark, Globacom’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) Mr. Mohammed Jameel represented by Executive Director, Legal, Mrs. Gladys Talabi welcomed the winners in the second presentation ceremony on the on-going promo.

“Today’s event is a double celebration, as we are also celebrating the quality of our network in the midst of great challenges like power, security and the bureaucratic inhibitions we face in the course of our operations,” he said.

He also noted that just a few weeks ago, NCC gave Globacom a pass mark in terms of quality of service, hence “we have recommenced this promo.”

Champion Infotel recalled that NCC last February banned all promotions on the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) culminating into temporary stoppage of the promo, leaving 440 cars in the Glo Win and Rule promo.

“I am happy to announce that Glo was the only company given the nod to run promos and today, we resume all activities around the promo with this presentation and draw ceremony,” he said.

Mr. Jameel added that the only condition Globacom has for continuing with this largesse for customers is to keep the network’s quality high.

“We’re ready for this. As a truly Nigerian company, Globacom is ploughing back its proceeds into building a first class network as well as investing heavily in our valued customers,” he declared.

He pointed out that Globacom has by this commencement demonstrated commitment towards network improvement by striving to complete its optic fibre backbone around the country.

Mr. Jameel stressed that in the last few weeks Globacom has commissioned the installations in Enugu, Owerri, and Onitsha to make telecoms services; phone calls, data transmission and video communication more accessible and qualitative for its subscribers.

“For us at Globacom, the customer is indeed, king,” he declared.

Mr. Jameel went on to caution subscribers on the network to beware of some fraudsters that are desperately trying to use fake promos to defraud innocent people.

“Whilst I urge Nigerians not to abuse the generosity of Globacom, I implore you all to be vigilant and careful. Any promo that requires your sending recharge Personal Identification Number (PIN) to a certain Glo telephone number is not genuine. You can always crosscheck the veracity of the information that you receive from any of our offices,” Mr. Jameel warned.

The cars on offer include BMW, Mercedes Benz, Peugeot and Kia.

Special guest at the occasion namely the Director General, APCON, Alhaji Bello and sports analyst, Mr. Mitchel Obi commended Globacom and enjoined Nigerians to continue glowing on the network by making more calls, noting that its only when they make calls on the network that they would have the chance of winning part of the largesse.
