After a month of giving away 3KVA power generators daily, telecommunication company Tigo has given away the first monthly prize of a 10KVA power generator.
The winner, a 27-year-old actress who lives on the Spintex Road in Accra, Xandra Kamel, was overcome with emotion at the short presentation ceremony in Accra.
“This is a big surprise because I did not subscribe to any short code and therefore least expected it. A 10KVA power generator is far too big for my house so I will connect and share with my neighbour,” she said.
Others including Kwadwo Mensah, Alex Ohene, Isaac Amoquadoh and Mustapha Alimatu each won a 3000 watt power inverter. The daily winners also received 3KVA power generators, power banks and rechargeable lamps.
Tigo Yensor Nkoaa promotion was developed to help Tigo customers cope with the current power supply challenges.
Tigo customers get the opportunity to own alternative sources of power including the daily prizes of 3KVA power generators, power banks and rechargeable lamps. The monthly prizes include a 10KVA, 20KVA and 30KVA power generators and 3000 Watt power inverters.
A total of 93 power generators, 1,260 rechargeable lamps, 450 power banks and 12 power inverters will be given away in the 90 day promotion which begun on 14th May 2015.
The Head of Marketing for Tigo, Jesse Agyepong, emphasized that customers need not register for the promotion as each of them have been given daily, weekly and monthly targets.
