The winners in Globacom’s Joy Unlimited Extravaganza promotion who were presented their prizes in Enugu on Thursday said the national telecommunications company has made the forthcoming Christmas a memorable one for them.
A total of 74 lucky subscribers received their prizes at the event held at Gloworld, Ogui Road, Enugu. 26 winners went home with smart television sets, 26 others carted home power generators while another 22 lucky subscribers smiled home with refrigerators. One of the overjoyed generator winners and self-employed man, Patrick Ogwuazor, from Enugu, declared that it was the best thing to happen to him in recent times. “The news brightened my mood after a hard day’s job. I had been planning to buy a generator and now Glo has made my Christmas complete. I am assured of enjoying my celebration with constant power supply”.

Augustine Afoso, an Enugu-based builder who won a TV set, stated that he was extremely happy with Globacom for coming to his aid. “My dad had told me to buy a new TV for him as his Christmas present. I had been wondering how to raise the money for it and now God has used Glo to answer my prayers. This means a lot to me”.
Similarly, Francis Ejiofor, who works with the National Gallery of Arts in Enugu and is a refrigerator winner, said, Glo has brought joy to him and his family: “What a beautiful way to start Christmas. I am overwhelmed with happiness and I thank Glo for what they have done for me today”.
