Nigeria’s leading telecommunications provider, Airtel Nigeria has proved the authenticity of its Recharge & Hit A million promo, as it presented 1 million Naira to its first millionaire winner.
The prize presentation ceremony which held at Ambrose Ogidi’s office, The Etiebet House on Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Ikeja, Lagos, on June 25, 2015 came as a surprise to him.
The winner, Ambrose Ogidi who is a lift operator at The Etiebet House, expressed his joy over the prize saying “I was aware of the promo and participated in it, but I never thought I will win 1 million Naira from Airtel Nigeria”.
The presentation ceremony came as an utter shock to Mr. Ogidi who was busy performing his official duties, when he was greeted by TuFace Idibia, one of Airtel Nigeria’s Smart Icons. He had barely finished dealing with the shock of meeting and speaking with TuFace Idibia, when he was told he had emerged a millionaire from the Recharge & Hit A Million promo.
The elated Ambrose Ogidi said: “We always hear about different promos but I never thought I will be a winner. I am still in shock. Airtel Nigeria has touched my life and I will forever remain grateful to them”.
