Etisalat customers who emerged millionaires at the game show held Saturday in the coal city of Enugu could not hide their excitement when one of the top officials of the telecommunications company, Seki Akande, presented them with cheques of their winnings.
The game show, which is part of the on-going 9jillions promotion, is designed to generate millionaires across the six geo-political regions in addition to the grand prize win of one million dollar. In Enugu, 7 more millionaires emerged.
Oyidiya Torti, a 300 level law student of the Abia State University who led her team comprising of Enyinya Torti, Ifeoma Iroha and Uzoma Mba was full of kind words for Etisalat after winning Two Million and Two Hundred Thousand (N2, 200,000) in the game. According to her, â€œEtisalat is real, it is the best GSM Company and I am so grateful to them for the opportunity to win such amount of money. God will never cease to bless and prosper their business as they affect the lives of Nigerians positivelyâ€.
For Edward Amiah, a student of the University of Port Harcourt, this life-changing experience has bestowed on him multiple blessings after he won Two Million and Two Hundred Thousand (N2, 200, 000) at the game show. He believes it is the hand of God working in his life and is eternally grateful to God through Etisalat. In an emotion laden voice, Amiah said, â€œWhatever level I attain from now on in my educational carrer I give the credit to Etisalat.
This couldnâ€™t have come at a better time than now. I was faced with a situation where my mother who is a petty trader is ill and the little savings I had has gone into paying her huge hospital bills and my father is late so I was almost at the point of dropping out of school for lack of money to continue. Thanks to Etisalat, my education is back on track and my mum can now get good medical attention.â€
Bolaji Adebowale, a graphic designer said, â€œEtisalat remains the most credible GSM operator in this country. I have participated in other promos before and I have not seen either a close relation or friends winning before. For me to have won, it only shows that Etisalat is the best and most rewarding of them all and come to think of it, they offer cheapest cost of participation. Up Etisalat, up 9ja for live,â€ he enthused.
Other winners who expressed their gratitude to Etisalat included Danlami Hassan, Onunka Chiwendu, Orji Thomas; Chukwumah Chukwuemeka, Ezumezu Ike, Okocha Doris and Chukwumah Ikechukwu who won One Million Two Hundred and fifty Thousand Naira (N1,250,000) each as members of their teams.
