Telecommunications giant, Globacom, has announced the names of six new winners in its reward promo dubbed “Go Russia”. The six lucky winners have increased the rank of winners so far in the promo to 13, out of the 22 advertised spots. Nine more winners are to emerge in the offer.
The lucky winners left the shores of Nigeria aboard an Emirates Airline flight which took off at 5.30 p.m. on Saturday. They include Mayowa Ibe Akinbode from Ijaiye in Abeokuta, Muyideen Olayiwola Disu from Isale Eko, Maxwell Igwegbe from Lugbe, Abuja, Popoola Abdulrafiu Olaide from Ijebu Igbo and Ebube Benson Uzoma from Imo State.
The last of the six winners, Osagie Edwin Isibor, who hails from Benin City could not proceed on the trip because of ill-health.
Globacom felicitated with them at a short send-off ceremony for emerging winners and charged them to be good ambassadors of Nigeria and, indeed, Globacom in Russia.
One of the winners, a 200-level student of Public Administration from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Miss Uzoma Ebube Benson, enthused at the send-off ceremony that, “Globacom has shown over the years that it is a company that truly believes in Nigeria and Nigerians with the way it gives back to the country”.
In the same vein, 32-year-old fashion designer, Akinbode Mayowa, posited that the trip to Russia “is very unique because this is the first time I will be making a foreign trip and it is absolutely free of charge in every respect. I thank Glo.”
Also speaking, Disu Muyideen Olayiwola said, “I initially doubted the authenticity of the promo, but it is a reality today and I cannot but be grateful to Globacom for this golden and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity”.
The company encouraged subscribers to participate in the promo in order to secure a chance to visit Russia, while re-emphasising its commitment to the empowerment of its subscribers at all times by availing them world-class and affordable voice and data services.
“More winners will be unveiled from the next set of draws to be conducted soon in the GO RUSSIA promo which was designed to reward our amazing subscribers who have stood solidly behind the brand over the years,” the company promised.
GO Russia Promo started on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, and is open to all prospective and existing Glo subscribers on the prepaid and postpaid platforms.
Subscribers can therefore send GO to 240 on the Glo network to be part of the remaining 9 winners who will be eligible to embark on an all-expenses-paid trip to Russia between now and the end of the promo.
