This happened on Tuesday, January 24, in Kano as the company presented prizes to winners in the ongoing promo, in which winners have received prizes, including 3 Bedroom houses, brand-new cars, and other choice items in several parts of the country.
Dan Amar of Kano, Alhaji Aliu Harazimi, who represented the Emir of Kano, presented the keys to a brand new car to the latest car winner in the promo, Anas Yusuf Adamu. He was full of praise for Globacom and its Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, Jr., for the several empowerment schemes the company has implemented since its inception.
The traditional ruler said that “it is worthy of note that Globacom has not forgotten to reward its loyal customers in Kano and across Nigeria. This culture of empowerment is commendable and sets a good example for corporate Nigeria”.
The car prize winner who is a Kano-based businessman, Anas Yusuf Adamu, spoke about the shock that enveloped him a day earlier when Glo officials called to inform him that he had won a brand new Kia car in the promo.
Said he: “I first got a call in the evening from the Glo office that I had won a car. I almost did not believe it because my phone was switched off all day. When they however told me to come to the Gloworld office on Murtala Mohammed Way in Kano, it dawned on me it is real”. He added that the car prize from Globacom is a great empowerment for his family and business as he had never owned a car before.
Kano State Commissioner for Finance, Alhaji Adamu Fanda, also praised the efforts of the telecommunications giant in giving out so many valuable prizes to its subscribers in Kano State. “Globacom is setting a good example of what corporate citizenship should be. The company is indeed demonstrating its commitment to its operating environment. I encourage them to keep it up”, he said.
The representatives of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Alhaji Ibrahim Mahmud, and the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Engr Hanza Goya, who spoke at the event equally commended the company for following the approved guidelines.
The event was attended by scores of winners and their well-wishers. Over 60 winners from a draw, which was held on Thursday, went home with power generators, sewing machines, and rechargeable fans.
