The first batch of seven winners out of a total of 22 that will emerge in the ‘GO Russia’ promo, the on-going customer appreciation offer recently unveiled by National Telecommunications Company, Globacom, have left the country for Russia.

The winners were accompanied by a Globacom official on the trip to Russia where they will visit different tourist attractions, historical sites and monuments.

The lucky subscribers were sent off formally at the Mike Adenuga Towers’ headquarters of Globacom on Wednesday where the company congratulated them for emerging winners of the promo and urged them to be good ambassadors of Nigeria when they get to Russia.

Globacom restated the company’s commitment towards empowering its subscribers and giving them access to the best value and pricing at all times.

The winners on the trip include Agbede Temidayo Bayodele from Ekiti state, Adeoye Adefisoye Simon from Oyo State and Olugbokiki Mukail Omolola from Ogun State. Others are Orewa Edwin Ehi from Port Harcourt, Aghaegbunem Marvel Chukwufumnaya from Abuja, Oladunjoye Joseph Babatunde from Ogun State and Kome Sunny Ikpeba from Delta State.

The company stated that “more winners will be unveiled from the next set of draws to be conducted soon in the GO RUSSIA promo which was unveiled to reward our amazing subscribers who have stood solidly behind the brand over the years”

Speaking at the event, one of the winners, 45-year-old Kome Sunny Ikpeba from Delta State said, ”I have never won anything before, so when I got a call from Globacom to say that I qualified for a ticket, I was very happy. This is really good”. He thanked Globacom for giving him the opportunity to visit Russia.

Another winner, Oladunjoye Joseph Babatunde, a Lagos cinematographer, also commended Globacom for packaging GO RUSSIA promo. The Ogun State Indigene said, “I feel good, it is going to be a very good experience for me. I am a loyal Glo subscriber as i started with them at inception.”

Also commenting, a final year Mechanical Engineering student of Ekiti State University, Agbede Temidayo Bayodele who said the Russian trip was his first overseas trip advised his colleagues who thought it was a scam to participate in the promo because “it is for real!”

A total of 22 lucky winners will emerge eventually from the promo which offers an all-expenses-paid trip to Russia.

The promo which runs from May 16 to July 8, 2018, is open to all new and existing Prepaid/Postpaid customers on the Glo network nationwide.
