MTN Season Of Surprises Excite Abuja Residents [Photos]
…Thrills Shoppers In Spar, Shoprite, Next, Cash & Carry, Others
Just as Christmas fast approaches, Nigerians are thronging popular malls across the country to complete their last minute shopping ahead of the yuletide.
The residents of Abuja, the Federal Capital territory, are not left out. Shoppers who thronged major retail outlets including Spar, Shoprite, Next, Cash & Carry amongst others were in for a surprise as the Y’ello train covered the cost of all items purchased by shoppers on over the weekend.
Most of the beneficiaries were simply lost for words when they were informed by the cashiers that their bills had been cleared by MTN, organizers of the Season of Surprise initiative.
Durogbola Samuel, an Engineer and residence of Abuja stated that the Season of Surprise give-back initiative as the best Christmas gift he has received in recent times.
In his words: ‘’I am still shocked that they paid not only my bill but that of everyone that came to Spar today. This is the best Christmas gift anyone has ever given me and I am so grateful”.
Ngozi Ajayi, who also got a gift voucher at Shoprite, Apo, Abuja, also expressed delight at the gesture. While describing herself as the luckiest shopper in Abuja, she disclosed that she almost missed out on the largesse.
‘’I can say today is the best day of my life. And to think that I almost moved my Christmas shopping to next week! I only decided to do the shopping because my boss gave me the day off. I think I am the luckiest shopper in Abuja,” she said.
More Nigerians are expected to benefit from the Season of Surprises as the train moves across location in the country.
