Student Wins MTN Aeroplane, Opts For N64m

Ebube Essien-Garricks, a 27-year-old student of College of Health Science and Technology, Rivers State, has emerged the winner of a Cessna 182T aircraft in the MTN Ultimate Wonder promo.

She won after a draw held at the head office of MTN in Lagos on Tuesday.

Chief Marketing Officer, MTN, Mr. Larry Annetts, said the draw leading to the winner was interesting, credible and transparent.
He said, “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. The take-home for us here is that MTN is committed towards enriching the lives of its consumers.

“When we say we will do something, you can be sure that we don’t renege on our promises. The can-do- spirit is forever guiding our paths in offering utmost satisfaction to our consumers and we are glad that today a Nigerian has been enriched and empowered with an aeroplane.”

Ebube who was notified of her winning, via a phone call immediately opted for the cash value of the plane, which is N64m.

She said,  “I am short of words, there is no word to describe what I feel right now, it is almost as if it is a dream but I know that nothing can be more real than what I am feeling right now. This must be the best Christmas gift ever. It is truly wonderful.”

Speaking on the process leading to the selection of winners for the promo, the Assistant Director, Lagos zone of the NLRC, Mr. Obi Iriegbu, said had been transparent and credible.

“We started this journey together, ensuring that the consumers’ interests are protected and that the brand fulfils its promises. So far so good, it has been a credible and transparent process leading to the Ultimate winner of the aeroplane promised, from the beginning of the promo,” he stated.
