Female entrepreneur gets Glo Festival of Joy house prize in PortHarcourt
A female entrepreneur resident in Port Harcourt has become the first landlady to emerge in Globacom’s customer-reward promo, Festival of Joy.
Previous house winners in the promo were men. Miriam Okeanya, who lived with her parents in Obigbo, Rivers State, received keys to the beautiful three-bedroom house at a ceremony graced by the Executive Chairman of Obio-Akpor Local Government, Barrister George Ariolu, who
presented the house keys on Friday. Nollywood celebrities including Ebube Nwagbo and Mofe Duncan also witnessed the event.
Okeanya still thought it was too good to be true though she had been informed of her good fortune after her number was drawn on Thursday. “It is a lie”, she shouted continually.
“Nothing gave me an inkling at any time from January till December that
I was going to become a landlady at the end of the year. It feels great
and shocking at the same time. I am grateful to Glo. This Festival of
Joy, I think, was put in place for me”, she revealed.
She recalled that though she saw the advert on TV and decided to opt in
by dialling the *611# code, she didn’t imagine that fate and Glo were
working together to do make her dream of owning her own house possible
24 hours to the end of 2022.
The local government chairman praised Globacom for organising an
unprecedented subscriber-appreciation package, saying that lives are
being changed and fortunes transformed by Glo. “I must congratulate and
applaud Globacom for this and I wish other networks can copy this”, he
Head of Licencing and Operations of the National Lottery Regulatory
Commission (NLRC), Port Harcourt, Mr Walson Dambo, said the regulatory
body had been involved in the promo process from the onset, and
commended Globacom for being faithful in ensuring that winners receive
their prizes promptly.
Globacom’s Regional Manager, Mr Okechukwu Nwaeze, charged customers to
participate in the promo dialing *611# and recharge with N500 weekly to
be eligible to win rechargeable fans, N2,500 monthly recharge for the
sewing machines, N5,000 monthly recharge for the generator, N10,000
monthly recharge for the car, and N20,000 for three bedroom houses.
