Remmy Nweke

A total of 14 new lucky winners made up of traders, businessmen, students and pensioners emerged and have already taken possession of their prizes in the ongoing Season 2 of the Glo ‘text4millions” promo.

Each of the 14 winners went home with their N1m cheque at the Glo’s ‘Lord of the Ribs show’ in Ibadan.

The winners who received their prizes included Chukwudu Uche, a trader who sells CD’s in Owerri, Imo State, Rev. Ukandu Ucheya, pastor of the Assemblies of God Church in Trans Ekulu, Enugu, Ifeanyi Ihuoma, a trader in plumbing materials at Bridgehead, Onitsha, Mrs. Genevieve Elam, a civil servant in Umuahia, Abia State; Godwin Nwachukwu, a builder who lives in Abuja, Tochukwu Akabueze, a trader on clothing materials in Yaba, Lagos and Chimezie Obi a businessman who deals on plumbing and electrical materials in Lagos.

Others are Miss Victoria Olorunnisola a student from Minna, Niger State who is seeking admission into Kogi State University; Abubakar Lawan, a teacher and Islamic scholar from Kano, Onuorah Christopher a student from Nassarrawa who hopes to gain admission soon into the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka; John Gimsay, a civil servant working with the Plateau State House of Assembly in Jos, Godwin Edewor, a businessman from Warri, Delta State, Mrs. Deborah Oniwinde, a pensioner from Ido-Ani, Ondo State and Mr. Stephen Oke, a pensioner and former school principal in Ogbomosho, Oyo State.

Speaking at the occasion, some of the lucky winners expressed thanks to Glo for providing outstanding service to Nigerian telecom subscribers over the years and for changing their lives and those of their family members during the Xmas season.

They also had words of commendation for Glo for the honest and transparent manner in which it conducts its promos.

For Mr. Chimezie Obi, a dealer on plumbing and electrical materials, winning in the promo was totally unexpected.

“I am very, very happy. This is an unexpected gift from Glo. I will encourage those in my community and my Christian fellowship to use Glo. I want to be a Glo ambassador,” he said.

The three lucky students among the winners also praised Glo for changing their lives and for making them confident that they now have a chance at a good university education.

One of them, Miss Victoria Olorunsola stated, “I am seeking admission into Kogi State University. My sister encouraged me to play. I never thought I could win this kind of money in my life. I am extremely happy.”

Equally, for Rev. Ukandu Ucheya, the interactive and educative nature of the promo was the major factor that propelled him to play. “This is my first time of playing. I was attracted because of my interest in current affairs. My family shouted for joy! I will use the money to complete my building project which has been going on for about nine years”.
