27-year-old student wins MTN’s wonder plane

The winner preferred the equivalent cash price.

A 27-year-old student based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has been announced as the winner of the MTN Ultimate wonder promo.

Ebube Essien- Garricks was on Tuesday announced the winner of the wonder aeroplane MTN promo, but she asked for the equivalent N64 million.

“We are delighted to announce that Miss Ebube Essien-Garricks, a 27 year old student based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has emerged winner of the brand new Cessna 182T AEROPLANE in the MTN Ultimate Wonder Promo which ended today,” the telecommunication company said. “When contacted on phone, Ms. Ebube said she would prefer the cash equivalent of N64 million. Lucky girl!”

In August, MTN Nigeria announced an Ultimate Wonder Promo where a winner wins an aeroplane or its monetary equivalent if the winner so wishes.

To qualify MTN users were asked to top-up their phones with a minimum of N200 worth of recharge for the weekly draws. 12 winners would receive a star prize of N2 million each while 100 customers would receive N150 thousand each, weekly, the telecom operator said.

MTN Nigeria, the country’s largest telecommunication company, was widely criticised for the promo; as customers accused the telecom operator of neglecting its primary task of providing efficient telephone services
