In fulfillment of its promise to send consumers to the Etihad Stadium to watch the training and games of Manchester City football club, PZ Cussons on Friday at the Justrite Supermarket, Abule Egba, Lagos, conducted the draws in which two consumers won two tickets for an all- expense trip to the Etihad, while several others won gift items ranging from Manchester City jerseys to football, flash drives and t-shirts.
The raffle draw at Abule Egba was followed by another draw on the second day at Park and Shop, Ilupeju, Lagos, in which two other winners of an all- expense trip emerged.
One of the winners, Michael Aniete, said it was beyond his wildest dream that he would one day visit the Etihad Stadium, not to talk of seeing players that he normally watch on television live.
“I could not believe my ears when I first received the call that I that I had won an all- expense trip to the Etihad to watch Manchester city play. Though it has always been a dream to see some of these players live but I never knew how it would come about. I am so excited,” an obviously elated Aniete said.
In a chat with Brand Manager (Premier), Deedi Modey, she said PZ Cussons had a three-year partnership with Manchester City and “we therefore want to engage our customers and we felt there was no better way than to a chance to purchase the product that they love and by that win a trip to watch a match involving Manchester City.”
According to Modey, aside from the consumers having an opportunity to see Manchester City players live, they would also be lounged in a three-star hotel in Manchester, with their feeding taking care of. They would also take a tour of the city and voucher would be given to each of them for their shopping.
To ensure there was no discrepancy in the raffle draws, an official of the Consumer Protection Council, CPC, was on hand to witness the draws.
