Student wins house in Glo promo

A 20-year-old student has emerged as the lucky winner of a three-bedroom house in Globacom’s ongoing customer appreciation promo, Festival of Joy.

Ibrahim Abiodun, who did not believe his latest fortune, was said to have played hide and seek with Glo officials who called to inform him of his prize and refused to show up on Thursday when the call was made to him after the draw.

It took a video call showing him the premises of Globacom as well as persuasions from friends and neighbours before he believed that the calls from Glo were genuine and that his status had indeed changed to that of a landlord.

Ibrahim eventually showed up on Friday to claim his house prize.

The keys to the three-bedroom house were handed to him by the Executive Chairman of the Ibeju Lekki Local Government Area, Abdullahi Olowa, and the member representing Etiosa Constituency I at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Noherm Adams.

The company said before the new addition, four Glo subscribers had won houses in Ibadan, Port Harcourt and Abuja.

It said the four winners were a 19-year-old undergraduate at the Ekiti State University, Ibrahim Akindele; 48-year-old Abuja businessman, Chukwu Rueben Okorie; 26-year-old lawyer, Chimeka Woke, and a 49-year-old mechanical engineer, Ola Joseph.

Ibrahim, who recalled that he had been swindled in 2021 while trying to rent a befitting apartment for his parents, said though he opted into the promo by dialing *611#, he was not prepared for the shock of being told he had won a house.

“I was also being careful because all kinds of things are going on in town these days and we need to also know that this is December when scammers will also try last-minute activities to scam people,” he added.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Olowa commended Globacom for pioneering and sustaining the tradition of making subscribers a priority in its operations.

“It is heartwarming to note that Globacom still keeps faith with the tradition of adding wholesome value to the lives of its subscribers,” he said.

According to Globacom’s Regional Manager, Lagos 1, Mr Temitope Ayeni,  subscribers wishing to participate in the promo should “dial the dedicated short code, *611#, and recharge to be eligible to win any of the prizes on offer.

He added, “Subscribers who desire to win any of the three-bedroom houses must make data subscription up to at least N20,000 during the promo period. The more they recharge, the higher the chances of winning.”
