A Primary school teacher, construction site driver and a couple have emerged as new millionaires in the ongoing Dangote Cement Season 2 Promo. They received dummy cheques and credit alerts in their banks’ accounts at a ceremony held in Abuja.
The couple-Olota Mubashiru Kehinde and Mustafa Kafilat Oluwatoyin-said they were shocked, describing the development as the ‘will of God.’ Mrs. Kafilat said she was a teacher before the pandemic struck which led to the closure of schools, and forcing her to venture into block making business.
It would be recalled that last month a man and wife were among the lucky entrants into the Dangote Cement Promo Millionaires Club.
One of the star winners, Samson Famuyiwa, 25, said he had just arrived from Lagos two months ago as a construction site driver, when all of a sudden, in a single day, he collected the wining alphabets, adding that his two children will be able to attend a better school.
Group Executive Director, Government and Strategic Relations Engr. Mansur Ahmed said the promo was part of the effort of the company of giving back to the society, and to support Nigerians during the covid-19 pandemic.
Marketing Director, Dangote Cement Plc, Mrs. Funmi Sanni said the Dangote Group will not rest on its oars in helping to ginger the Nigerian economy, even as he urged Nigerians to continue to patronize the Dangote Cement. She said only Dangote Cement has the capacity to inject such huge amounts of money into the economy. Sanni, who said a lot of promos were being promised by some companies under the facade of business promotion that turned out to be scams and decoys contrived to dupe the customers, stated that the ongoing promo was real and impactful.
“The target is to make a minimum of 10 millionaires in every state, only Dangote (Aliko) can do this. His philanthropy knows no bounds. I advise our customers not to wait till dry season before buying Dangote cement. Go, buy and become a millionaire. It is real and achievable if you patronize us”, she stated.
