‘This is the best Christmas gift ever! Meet the ‘Ultimate Wonder Aeroplane Winner’ Ebube Essien-Garricks
Yesterday, a 27 year-old student Miss Ebube Essien-Garricks was announced as the winner of the much publicized ‘Ultimate Wonder Aeroplane’ promo run by telecommunication company MTN.
She has opted for the money equivalent which means she will be receiving the sum of N64m.
Essien-Garricks is currently based in Port Hacourt where she studying at a school of science. She is unmarried.
We’re told the picture above was taken yesterday, at MTN’s Port Harcourt office shortly after she received the phone call that delivered the great news.
Miss Garricks’ phone was initially switched off, NET reliably gathered, and it took sometime before she could be reached.
‘I am short of words, there is no word to describe what I feel right now, it is almost as if it is a dream but I know that nothing can be more real than what I am feeling right now. This must be the best Christmas gift ever. It is truly wonderful’ an excited Essien-Garricks said yesterday.
Addressing the press, Larry Annetts, Chief Marketing Officer, MTN, stated that the journey in getting the Ultimate winner for the aeroplane, as promised by MTN, had been interesting, credible and transparent.
Annetts said: “When we came out with the promo, many doubted us, but today, we have an ultimate winner who will go home with the promised Cessna 182T aeroplane.
“The take-home for us here is that MTN is committed towards enriching the lives of its consumers. When we say we will do something, you can be sure that we don’t renege on our promises.
“The Can-do spirit is forever guiding our paths in offering utmost satisfaction to our consumers and we are glad that today, a Nigerian has been enriched and empowered with an aeroplane.”
Ebube, who was notified of her good fortune via a phone call, immediately opted for the cash value of the plane, which is N64 million.
