A winner has eventually emerged in the MTN Ultimate Wonder Promo where a brand new Cessna 182T aeroplane was the star prize. This is notwithstanding the instruction by NCC that all promotions and lotteries by telecommunications companies be stopped with immediate effect. According to an announcement on MTN Nigeria’s official Facebook page, Miss Ebube Essien-Garricks, 27, a student, won the prize. Read the statement below:
We are delighted to announce that Miss Ebube Essien-Garricks, a 27 year old student based in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, has emerged winner of the brand new Cessna 182T AEROPLANE in the MTN Ultimate Wonder Promo which ended today! When contacted on phone, Ms. Ebube said she would prefer the cash equivalent of N64 million. Lucky girl!
The promo, which started in August required MTN users to top-up their phones with a minimum of N200 worth of recharge for the weekly draws in order to qualify. On Monday, NCC barred the telecoms operators from promos and lotteries after many consumers complained of poor service by the firms.
