A civil servant, who works as a traffic officer with Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Area in Lagos, Mr. Oluwasegun Adesanya, has one N10 million in the on-going Airtel Red Hot Promo.

He was with his immediate and extended family members to receive the cheque, when they all danced to popular inspirational tunes during a prize presentation ceremony to reward the second batch winners of Airtel Red Hot promo.

Adesanya was the biggest winner of the week as he went home with N10 million after picking his cheque at a colourful prize presentation, which held in Ikeja, Lagos recently.
The event was attended by officials of the Consumer Protection Council (CPC), National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and TCQ & A, a leading systems and process audit firm.

An elated Adesanya, who was dressed in a similar ‘asoebi’ uniform as his immediate and extended family members, said: “God has answered my prayers through Airtel Nigeria. I prayed every day for a miracle, and God has answered my prayers through this amazing promo.

“As a matter of fact, I was so happy after receiving the news from Airtel that I had won N10 million. I called my wife, children, older brothers and his family, to inform them and I declared a party instantly, asking everyone to make their orders. Indeed, this is a special moment for me. It is amazing and a wonderful time for me and I thank Airtel very much,” Adesanya said.

Aside Adesanya, other winners were also rewarded during the prize presentation.
Mr. Olawumi Olaosebikan, an iron fabricator based in Ogba, Lagos state, emerged winner in the N1 million category.

“After learning iron fabrication, I have always wanted to start up my own business but I needed the sum of N500, 000 to do this. Airtel Red Hot Promo has given me the opportunity to be my own boss. This promo has changed my life and that of my family,” an excited Olaosebikan said.
Another N1million winner, Mrs. Chinwe Okpanumee, said Airtel has written her name in gold through the win.

“In this recession, while things are turning down for others, things are turning up for me. I see this N1 Million as N10 million. Airtel Nigeria has superceded my expectations this yuletide season,” she said.

Head, Lagos Zone, Consumer Protection Council, Joshua Ngada said: “Airtel Nigeria is an example of a good corporate citizen and this promotion has followed the laid down process set by our organisation. Red Hot Promo has proven its credibility through the prize presentation ceremony.”
Airtel will give away N200 million in cash prizes in the Red Hot promo while over 360,000 customers will win different prizes in this year’s edition, making it the biggest ever, since the launch of the Red Hot promo four years ago.

Also, eight lucky customers will win the weekly grand prize of N10, 000,000 each while 60 Customers will become instant millionaires, winning N1, 000,000 daily.
