The second prize presentation in Glo Recharge and Win BIG promo also known as My Own Don Beta took place at the popular Wuse market, Abuja on Wednesday with Abuja based Tailor, Solomon Hassan winning Tricycle (popularly called Keke) alongside fifty nine other winners who collected different prizes including Industrial Sewing Machines, Generators and Grinding Mills. A highly-elated Hassan who resides in Gwagwalada, a satellite town of Federal capital territory thanked Globacom for the prize. He said “I am very excited and don’t know what to say. I am a tailor and now I have a Keke and that is an extra business which will bring in more money for my family”
According to Hassan: “I received many calls that day but I could not pick, I was very busy. Eventually when I picked I was told that I won Keke Napep which I did not believe until they gave the phone to Mama G (Patience Ozokwor) who asked me if I did not believe I won? But I told her that I believe now and I was told to come to Glo office” Another Keke winner is Odah Sunday from Abuja. Odah said “When I received the call from Glo that I have just won Keke Napep, I thought it was 419 stuff but at a point, Glo customer service called and said I should give details and I drop my details and today it became a reality that I have actually won Keke. I have recharged two hundred naira many times and I am very happy that I won”
Some other winners include Dinda Salami from Bauchi who won a Grinding Machine, Engineer Barnabas Amgba from Abuja and Precious Emmanuel who both won Generators. Earlier in his opening remarks, the regional manager, North Central, Globacom, Mr Kemi Kaka said the promo was one of Globacom’s efforts to delight its numerous subscribers that have been with the network over the years.
“While we congratulate those who will receive their prizes today, we are pleased to inform you that Globacom will continue to spread joy across the nation as our dignitaries here today will help us to pick, openly, the next set of winners in a live draw which will start soon”, he said
Also speaking at the event, Director of Licensing and Operations, National Lottery Regulatory Commission, Barrister Henry Uwadiae said the commission was on ground to ensure fair play in the promo exercise, adding that Glo has been doing this for a long time and we’ve not had any reason to say they have short-changed anybody.
The event was attended by Chairman, GSM Village Abuja, Mr Chris Eze; Glo Business Associate, MD/CEO of Zeph Associates, Mr Tochukwu Nwosu, and Chairman, Wuse Market Traders Association, Mr Okorie Ikechukwu Raphael. The event was preceded by the third draw of the promo which produced a total of 50 lucky winners: 20 generators, 15 grinding machines, 10 sewing machines and 5 Keke. These winners will receive their prizes in Port Harcourt on Wednesday 6th November 2019.

Laura Onwugbenu: “It’s a pleasant surprise”
“I was called last week Friday by Glo Customer Care that I won a generator and should come to Abuja today. I did not know a promo was going on. I just loaded N200 and was called that I won a generator. I came all the way from Benin to collect my prize because it is worth it as the generator is not a small one.”
Jabiru Abdulkarim from Niger State won a Keke (tricycle): “This Keke will cover my shame”
“ I came all the way from Niger State to collect the Keke which I won. I will use the Keke Napep to make money to feed my family. With this gift, God has made a way of making money for me to cover my shame. I appreciate the Glo network for this programme. God bless Glo”.
Hassan Solomon Tajudeen, fashion designer, Gwagwalada: ”I use 2 Glo lines, I will tell everybody about Glo” “I was so excited when they called me that I had won. I love Glo as I even use two Glo lines. Glo, I thank you very much. I did not expect it at all. It was my wife who informed me about the promo. When I get back, I will tell everybody about Glo. If you do not have a Glo line, go and get one now. My Own Don Beta o!”
Aliyu Mohammed from Nasarawa State: “ I feel fine”: “ I feel fine. I was very happy when I was called. I am very grateful and by the grace of God I will be one of their agents in my state.”
Ayegbajeje, Abuja: 3 Gbosas for Glo!: “I really thank God and thank Glo. It is a network that you just have to stay with. My brother bought the Glo line when he came home from abroad three weeks ago. So, I am grateful to Glo. I am here to collect my prize, a generator. On this My Own Don Beta promo, 3 Gbosas to Glo.”
Dinda Salami, from Bauchi (Grinding Machine): “Please keep it up!”: I was at home on Monday when Glo called me and they told me that I won a grinding machine and that I should try to come to Lagos, but I told them that I am not from Lagos, that I am from Bauchi State. They then told me to go to Glo office in Bauchi and I went there and was told to wait for some time that they would call me. By next day, they called me and told me to come to Abuja and here I am in Abuja. Though some people told me that it was not real, but when I came in the morning, I saw the prizes and everything happening and I was surprised. I will keep the grinding machine for my fiancé because she was the one that made me buy the cards to call her. She will make use of it. I will advise Glo to keep it up. I use only Glo and I have been using my number for long and I have reaped the benefit of the line today.
Odah Sunday, Mararaba, Abuja. ( Keke Napep): “I am short of words”: I won Keke Napep. I feel so excited and very happy. In fact, I am short of words because I don’t believe this is happening. When I received the call from Glo that I have just won Keke Napep, I thought it was 419 stuff but at a point, Glo customer service called and said I should give details. I dropped my details and today, it became a reality that I have actually won Keke. I have recharged two hundred naira many times and I am very happy that I won.
Engineer Barnabas Amgba, Abuja (Generator): “ Glo promo is transparent”: I was full of joy when I got a call from a lady in Globacom who called from Lagos to tell me that I won a Generator in the Glo promo, My Own Don Beta. I am indeed excited. What I want to say about this promo is its transparent process. I only know that the promo is going on but I don’t know anyone in Glo and out of the blues, I just got a call that I won a generator. This is the first time I will win a prize in any promo. Thank you. I’ve also been enjoying Glo service in my area, the service is good.
Precious Emmanuel, Abuja (Generator): “Glo is just the best”: I am very happy to win a generator in My Own Don Beta promo. Glo is just the best and I am very delighted to be a subscriber. This is too good. I don’t know what to say anymore. Right now, I am a proud owner of a generator and I will be using it personally. I didn’t expect to win a generator; I was very surprised.
