Lo and behold, after about two weeks, I got a call from Glo customer service number 121, and after confirming my identity, I was told I won a brand new Kia car. I could not believe my ears. Glo has made me a car owner. This is the biggest gift in my life and my first car. I will forever remain with the Glo network. I will keep the car for my personal use”.

According to a generator winner, Paschal Oyedo, a Port Harcourt- based lawyer,” I did not believe it until I got to Glo office and saw the generator. This is exciting.
