Nigeria’s foremost lotto company, Premier Lotto, popularly known as Baba Ijebu, has made impactful and meaningful rewards to 328 Lotto lovers across the country by giving away eight KIA CERATO cars and other household equipment through its ‘Baba Ijebu Give Back Promo’. The winners emerged through an online electronic draw, which was conducted on Sunday, October 18, 2015 among Premier Lotto players who participated in the ‘Win Big in the Baba Ijebu Give Back Promo’, which lasted from October 1 – 17, 2015. According to Premier Lotto, “The Give Back Promo is aimed at giving back to the numerous loyal customers of Premier Lotto who have stayed with the brand over the years as part of the celebration activities lined up for the 80th birthday celebration of the Founder and Chairman, Sir Kensington Adebutu, who clocked 80 on October 24, 2015”. Among the eight winners of the star prize, KIA CERATO cars that had been identified with their names at press time were Bamisile Michael, Victor Chukwu and Igbinoba Tony. According to Tunde Shofowora, Chief Executive Officer of Red Ribbon Limited, the public relations, experiential marketing and creative event company that anchored the event: “Premier Lotto is awaiting the emergence of the remaining five star prize winners to come forward and claim their prizes.
The winning numbers had earlier been published in national dailies”. One of the star prize winners, Bamisile Michael, who claimed to be a ‘doubting Thomas’ said he tried his luck on advice from a friend after seeing the promo’s advert on television. Michael also added that he was overwhelmed and couldn’t believe he can have a car overnight. The joyous winner said he intends to touch other lives with his ‘gift’ from Baba Ijebu. Another winner of the star prize, Victor Chukwu, said he had on two occasions witnessed two people around him on October 24, 2015 “winning a car and a million Naira in past promos of other organizations”. He insisted that was what spurred him to give the Baba Ijebu Give Back Promo a trial. Victor claimed to have prayed before participating in the promo, and expressed gratitude to Baba Ijebu. In his words: “Baba Ijebu really embarrasses me with blessings.” Adding that he will use the car judiciously and to the service of humanity.
