‘Register Glo SIM, go to Manchester’

The Second National Operator, Globacom is offering subscribers on its network N20,000 free airtime, trips to Manchester or Dubai.

Group Chief Operating Officer (GCOO), Globacom, Mr. Mohamed Jameel said this is in effort at intensifying SIM registration drive for subscribers on the network.

The new campaign, he also said, is aimed at encouraging Glo subscribers to register their old and new SIM cards before the 28 September deadline given by the industry regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), while earning fantastic rewards.

He noted that the campaign was to expedite actions on the ongoing Glo SIM registration exercise which the company started last year, through special incentives which will encourage all existing and new subscribers to register their SIMs.

Jameel pointed out that those customers who comply and immediately register their SIMs will be rewarded with fantastic prizes during the 3-month duration of the campaign.

He cited an instance, saying that all subscribers who register their SIMs get a guaranteed 30 minutes of free airtime during the three months of the promotion. 10 minutes of free airtime would be given every month for three months.

“The 30 minutes bonus airtime will be given immediately the person recharges N500 and above in each of the 3 months of the campaign and will be valid for 7 days,” he said.

Emphasising that an additional N20,000 worth of free airtime would be given out to 300 lucky subscribers who will be picked during special draws which are to be held monthly. 100 lucky customers will be selected monthly and rewarded.

He explained that the highlight of the campaign is the offer of free all-expense paid pleasure trips to Manchester or Dubai for 60 lucky subscribers who register their SIMs.

“The winners of the free trips will be picked during special draws which will be conducted monthly for three months,” he said, adding that the campaign would see 10 lucky subscribers travelling to each destination each month for 3 months.

“At the end of the day, 30 Glo subscribers would have made an unforgettable trip to Manchester to watch English Premier League champions, Manchester United, play at their home turf, while another 30 would have taken a memorable trip to Dubai as a reward for simply registering their SIMs,” he said.

The draws to select the winners of the other prizes such as the N20,000 free airtime and pleasure trips will be held at the end of every month among customers who have recharged N500 and above during the month.

In order to make the new SIM registration campaign a huge success, all Gloworlds, Glozones, Dealer outlets and Glo agents across the country have been sufficiently equipped with high-tech systems to ensure quick, efficient registration of customer SIMs.

The whole registration process with Glo takes less than 2 minutes at these points. Glo Subscribers can also text “reg” to the short code “3456” in order to confirm whether their SIMs had been registered or not on the Glo network.
