The winner of N12 million in the promo, Shittu Shodeinde, who told the audience that he was motivated to start participating in the promo by his wife, was full of praises to God and thanked Glo for making him a multimillionaire. He said he would invest part of the money in his electrical and cable sales business while the rest will be invested in people.
“This is unexpected favour from God. I was actually enjoying the game because I was learning from the questions being asked everyday. Today, I am a multimillionaire ready to rule my world just because I am on the Glo network. Thank you Glo for changing my life”, he said.
On his part, Ifeanyi Ahuzuru, a trader in plastic wares who won N6 million in the promo said he was equally surprised and overwhelmed when he got a call that he had won millions in the promo. “I thank Glo very much for this gesture as I now have enough money to expand my trade in plastics where I reside in Ore, Ondo state”, he said.
Abideen Alao Abiodun, a trader in polythene bags who won N6 million in the promo also expressed surprise at winning such a huge amount. He said that he was so happy to win after overcoming the initial scepticism by his wife.
“I am now an instant multimillionaire. When I called my wife to tell her about the good news she was initially asking for the money I borrowed from her to buy recharge cards. But now I am thankful to God for this great blessing immediately after the Ramadan fasting. My thanks go to the Chairman of Glo, Otunba Mike Adenuga and the entire staff of the company”, he stated.
