Poverty forced me out of school- Winner’s of Glo’s BMW car


For Matthew Francis, it has been a grass to grace story, coming from poverty to emerge as a winner of a brand new 2007 model BMW 318i luxury car in Globacom’s “Win and Rule promo”.

For Matthew Francis, it has been a grass to grace story, coming from poverty to emerge as a winner of a brand new 2007 model BMW 318i luxury car in Globacom’s “Win and Rule promo”.

Francis emerged as one of the first ten winners of the promo which began last December, with the promise of dishing out five hundred luxury cars to winners over a six month period.
“It is too good to be true” Francis, who dropped out of school in 1994, exclaimed. He described his fortune as the “handiwork of God” explaining that he dropped out of University in 1994, at 200 level, when he could no longer afford his school fees.

The applied chemistry student had left to pick a job hoping to save enough to return to his studies. But he had not been able to realise his dream since then before he got a surprise call from a Globacom official informing him that his number had emerged in the draw just conducted.
After confirming the news on television, that evening, Francis explained that he has moved from indigence to join the league of the wealthy. This is the sign of great day ahead.

In the draw, one subscriber won a Mercedes Benz S-350 saloon car, another one was picked for a BMW 318i, one winner was drawn for a Nissan Sunny saloon car while three winners are to receive Peugeot 307. Four other subscribers emerged winners of Kia Rio saloon cars.
The winners who responded to calls from the venue of the draw were from Gombe, Port Harcourt, Osogbo, Lagos, and Onitsha.

Mrs Sidikat Oladapo Ola from Mushin, Lagos and Mrs Akintunde from Oshogbo won two of the Kia Rio cars, Mrs Adeola Ademola, a business woman, who earlier would not disclose her identity when called by officials, until she watched the event on television, was the winner of the Mercedes Benz S350.
Mr. Bamidele from Oshogbo and Mr. Fatai from Kano emerged winners of Peugeot 307 cars.

The draws were conducted by eminent Nigerians including the Ex deputy Governor of Ogun, Alhaji Gbenga Kaka; President of the National Institute of Marketing of Nigeria, Chief Silva Emeokpere and Executive Director, Afribank, Mr. Isa Zailani.

Commenting on this latest initiative by Globacom, Chief Emeokpere said that Globacom was the first authentic Nigerian telecommunications brand and had shown example of how marketing should be practiced. “Globacom started the development of a truly local brand and today we have seen marketing practised in an excellent way”.
The process of the promo was endorsed by a renowned Chattered Accounting firm, Akintola Williams Deloitte.
The Win and Rule, Promo in which 500 posh cars are to be won, has been described as the biggest promo so far in the country.

Your meaning of Osamede is wrong. Osamede means God has given me a crown
