Gerald Chukwunonso Okoro ended 2022 on a low note as he battled the 
challenges of life. But his story changed through the Glo Festival of Joy promo on Thursday, January 5. His Glo number was drawn as winner of a three-bedroom apartment in a choice area in Enugu. 

The keys to the apartment, according to a statement from Globacom, were presented to him at a colourful event on Friday, January 6, 2023 in the town.

An ecstatic Okoro was full of excitement as he got to the Gloworld Polo Park shop in Enugu, less than 30 minutes after he was called to be informed of his fortune. He disclosed that he had just paid for a rented apartment and was worried about how to mobilize funds to furnish the place. Besides, his sister had been on admission in the hospital and he had been there with her for days until the fateful call came from Globacom.

“For about a month now, we’ve been going through a lot attending to her in the hospital. It is Globacom that has brought such good news to brighten the horizon. This is the first joyous thing giving us hope this year. Every member of the family is delighted,” he disclosed.

Okoro disclosed that God and Glo work in special ways as he was not expecting something so great so suddenly. “I am still in shock. My head is spinning. It is like a mirage. I opted to take part in the promo, but with what I have been going through caring for my sister in the hospital, the last thing on my mind was such a call from Globacom”, said the lawyer who put off calls to his line several times before finally answering.

The 25-year-old Okoro is not in a hurry to go to Law School, as, according to him, he has been heavily involved in organizing shows and handling models for some time now. 

Asked if he planned to get married soon since he is now a house owner, he said: “Marriage is not in the dictionary for now”.

The Special Guest at the ceremony, Enugu State Commissioner for Science and Technology, Chief Obi Kama, lauded Globacom for packaging such a huge subscriber-reward programme. 

He said: “Globacom has done well having the interest of its subscribers at heart and delivering great prizes to them just for using their lines.”

Mr Oliver Maduka, who is the coordinator of the Enugu Zonal office of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), said the NLRC had been keenly following the promo and was impressed with Globacom for keeping faith with its promise to subscribers.

"What Glo is doing is second to none. Glo has been doing its promos the right way. I am so excited for the winner because he emerged from a very transparent process. It is a level playing field and anyone can win", he said.

In his address at the presentation event, Globacom’s Regional Manager, Mr Mike Ehumadu, disclosed that apart from the houses, the Glo Festival of Joy promo is also offering thousands of other amazing prizes, including brand new cars, power generators, sewing machines and rechargeable fans to subscribers.

“To participate in this promo, voice and data customers just have to dial the dedicated short code *611# and recharge with N500 weekly to stand a chance to win the rechargeable fan; N2,500 monthly recharge for the sewing machine; N5,000 monthly recharge for the generator; N10,000 monthly recharge for the car and data subscription(s) of at least N20,000 during the promo period for the house”, he added.
