Genuine? MTN Utimate Wonder promo, Ebube Garricks, 27-year-old student, wins Aeroplane.

Filed under: Global Issues |

Many weeks ago, MTN Nigeria began frantic advertisement on their newest and generally conceived as unfeasible promo -The MTN Ultimate Wonder Promo. All body responsible for telcos regulation invited them to make sure they were not thinking of ripping Nigerians apart by taking their money and not holding up to their own end of the deal. Yesterday being Tuesday, marks a new dawn on a young mans life. The winner of the Aeroplane.

Ebube Essien-Garricks, a 27-year-old student based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State emerged the winner of the grand prize, a brand new Cessna 182 T Aeroplane. MTN announced the winner of the promo through their Facebook fan page yesterday.

When she was contacted on telephone, Essien-Garricks said she would prefer the cash equivalent of N64 million.

As interesting and sweet as the entire thing sound, a lot more people doubt the trueness of their selection. Too many questions have been bubbling out, is Ebube one of their hidden staff? Is she into some kind of deal? What criteria did they use in their selection? And lots more.

Do you think this is genuine?
