THISDAY - - BUSINESS WORLD -

A 500 Level An­i­mal Pro­duc­tion stu­dent of Ladoke Ak­in­tola Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy (LAUTECH), Og­bo­moso, Ayoade Daniel Olaide, was among six new Globa­com sub­scribers who went home with cash prizes at the lat­est draw of the on­go­ing on­line tal­ent hunt, called Gloin60Se­conds, or­gan­ised by Globa­com. The six win­ners were the sub­scribers with the best en­tries out of the thou­sands of video up­load made by Globa­com sub­scribers from var­i­ous parts of the coun­try in the last seven days. Olaide and five other win­ners were pre­sented with their cash prizes at var­i­ous Globa­com sales and cus­tomer ser­vice out­lets across Nige­ria.

Olaide who said his own cash win­ning would as­sist him to com­plete his tu­ition fees at LAUTECH, re­ceived his cash prize at a Gloworld out­let in Ibadan, while the duo of Chi­naza Ezeani and Chikaodili Pa­tience Okonkwo re­ceived theirs in Enugu.

A state­ment from the telco ex­plained that in La­gos, the Gloworld out­lets at the Ikeja City Mall and Adeni­ran Ogun­sanya were used for the pre­sen­ta­tion of the prizes to the duo of Doyin­sola Hazfeezah Salau and Ngini Chi­na­zom, re­spec­tively. Olaide said Globa­com had helped him to clear the bur­den of sourc­ing for funds to com­plete his uni­ver­sity tu­ition, and thanked the op­er­a­tor for in­tro­duc­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

An­other win­ner, 20-year old Doyin­sola, a 400-level law stu­dent of Uni­ver­sity of La­gos also show­ered praises on Globa­com. “I am happy and very de­lighted to re­ceive the prize,” she said. Also Chi­na­zom, a 300-level med­i­cal stu­dent of La­gos Uni­ver­sity of La­gos com­mended Globa­com for em­pow­er­ing the youth through the com­pe­ti­tion and promised to con­tinue to up­load videos in the hope of be­ing lucky a se­cond time. In Abuja, Onyekachi Madubuike, a Ma­te­rial and Me­tal­lur­gi­cal En­gi­neer­ing stu­dent of Fed­eral Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy, Ow­erri de­scribed his prize as a won­der­ful “New Year present”.

The win­ners urged other Nige­ri­ans to fol­low Globa­com so­cial me­dia han­dles and up­load a one-minute video show­ing them do­ing what they love do­ing to stand a chance of win­ning cash from Globa­com.

The duo of Chi­naza Ezeani and Chikaodili Pa­tience Okonkwo also re­ceived their prize in Enugu. 21-year old English grad­u­ate of Nnamdi Azikiwe Uni­ver­sity (Unizik), Awka, Chi­naza Ezeani said “I would put the money into buy­ing equip­ment that would make my skit pro­duc­tion bet­ter, like tri­pod and a cam­era” while Chikaodili, a first-year so­ci­ol­ogy stu­dent at Enugu State Uni­ver­sity ex­plained that “I would use it to pro­mote my new mu­sic track.”
