Mrs. Umenyi, who was represented at the occasion by Ms. Shola Salako, President, Consumer Advocacy Forum Nigeria, advised winners to use their winnings judiciously, noting that the primary concern of CPC in such promos like Zain’s Wake Up Millionaire, is to ensure that Nigerians get what is due to them in terms of reward to customers.

Mr. Hanafi, represented by the Director, Sales, Tamer Halbouny, explained that there are still one more N10m and 30 N2m prizes respectively to be won before the end of the promotion on June 24, this month.

Thanks Matesrow for the comment and inquiry.
As matter of fact, it has been stopped by NCC 'cos it was perceived as 'lottery' kind of game. So the deadline whether 24 July or June does not matter now, but the time; 24 June it stood banned. I hope this helps.
