For 38 year-old mechanic, Tunde Onaleke who won 10 million naira, the feeling was that of excitement and amazement that led him to drink wine and sleep in a bid to come to terms with his new status as a millionaire. The artisan who was accompanied by his wife was full of thanks to MTN for granting him the wherewithal to cater for his family and send his child to the school he desired.
“I am very grateful to MTN for blessing me with this money. Before now, I desired to send my child to a private school when she secured admission. She ended up in a public school when I couldn’t afford the fees. Now, I am going to send her to the school I desire for her. Kudos to MTN for making me a millionaire,” he said.
