When adverts started running for MTN's wonder promo, with the grand prize of an aeroplane, many thought the idea was preposterous and too good to be true.
However, it seems MTN plans to make good its promise. Yesterday, the Telecoms giant declared Ebube Essien-Garricks, a 27-year-old student of the College of Health Science and Technology, Rivers State, as the winner of a Cessna 182T aircraft, in the much talked-about mother of all promos ‘the MTN Ultimate Wonder promo.’ She emerged winner in an elaborate and transparent draw held at the Golden Plaza, Ikoyi, Head Office of MTN in the full glare of pressmen, Nigerian Lottery Regulatory Commission and the Nigerian Communications Commission.
Addressing the press, Larry Annetts, Chief Marketing Officer, MTN stated that the journey in getting the Ultimate winner for the aeroplane, as promised by MTN, had been interesting, credible and transparent. "When we came out with the promo, many doubted us, but today, we have an ultimate winner who will go home with the promised Cessna 182T aeroplane."
Ebube was notified of her good fortune via a phone call , but opted for the cash value of the plane, which is N64 million.
Overwhelmed and full of emotions, she showered praises on MTN describing the ultimate prize as a true wonder coming at a good time as the year comes to an end with the festive season just around the corner.
