All Uroko Francis, a native of the sleepy community of Obolo Afor, Udenu LGA, Enugu State, wanted for Christmas was a brand new television.
The Civil servant has had to make do with his five-year old television which was always in and out of the TV repairer’s shop. He finally had his prayers answered after he got a brand new television courtesy of the Season Of Surprises initiative.
He was not alone. Francis and other members of the Obolo Afor were pleasantly surprised by the on-going Season Of Surprise give-back initiative as the train hit the community, leaving a trail of love, excitement and lots of gifts in its wake.
Obviously overwhelmed by the gesture, Francis was full of gratitude for the gesture from the organizers of the Season of Surprise initiative. ‘’For me, this year’s Season of surprises has given me a befitting Christmas gift. This TV is coming at a time, I was thinking of changing the old TV set in my house. I say a big thank you to MTN for this gesture’’, he said.
Speaking on the give-back initiative, the General Manager, Consumer Marketing, MTN Nigeria; Oluwole Rawa, stated that this year’s Season Of Surprises initiative was designed to celebrate Nigerians irrespective of their background or telco affiliation.
“We are very excited to bring this special yuletide gesture to Nigerians all over the country. We are very passionate about Nigerians and Nigeria and that’s why we decided to share the joys of the season with the Season Of Surprises initiative, he stated.
The Season of Surprise initiative which kicked off in Falomo, Lagos, last Sunday has made stops in several locations across the country doling out gifts to people.
