Teachera wins Star Times’ Toyota Yaris
AN Ibadan-based secondary school teacher, Mr. Oladele Ajibola, at the weekend, won a 2014 Toyota Yaris car in the monthly raffle draw of Digital Pay Television operators, Star Times Nigeria
50 other subscribers went home with 32- inch LED television at the ongoing Extra Time promo of the firm.
The monthly grand prize of 2014 Toyota Yaris was presented to Ajibola at the company’s headquarters in Lagos.
Ajibola, who received the prize in the presence of the Head of Regulation and Monitoring Unit of the National Regulatory Commission, Jude Ogaga Ughwujabo, said he initially thought tricksters were at work when he received the call from Star Times Nigeria that he had emerged the star winner.
He said: “In fact at the time I received the call, I was in front of a debtor pleading that at least N5,000 be paid out of the money owed me to attend to some family needs.
“I was not expecting such a call from anywhere because I did not even know that Star Times had an ongoing promo. It was after I received the call and informed my wife that she searched on the internet to confirm that Star Times is indeed running its ExtraTime promo.”
Ughwujabo commended the company for the promo.
“The winners emerged based on a random selection from a pool and we were on ground to ensure that the whole process was not staged.
“Our commission is set up to sanitise promotions like this; we are here because they have a permit. If a promo is not registered, there is a penalty to it.”
“There are actions that monitor compliance of our laid down regulations. We have collected the number of the winner and we will continue to follow-up with the winner to ensure that he is driving the car,” he said.
