Comium, one of Liberia’s top GSM companies said over the weekend that it will today announced the winners of its two brand new Toyota Hilux Pickups, which have been on display as biggest prizes for its 2010 Independence Day Blast raffle campaign.
The ceremony which is expected to attract several subscribers will bring to an end the month long campaign, which the company said is intended to give back to its numerous customers.
Dubbed Independence Blast, the raffle draw was expected to take place July 26, but was extended due to overwhelming demands from customers. The event will be carried live on Truth FM and other radio stations in the country.
Like previous raffle draws some of which led to the winning of a Nissan Maxima vehicle as well as two bedrooms apartment on the Roberts Field Highway, all numbers that entered the draw will go through random movement until the correct number is displayed on the computer.
Comium Marketing Manager, Mr. Tsorporlor Ben told reporters on Saturday that it was Comium way of giving back to its subscribers.
“Well, this entire thing is luck. But I will keep recharging and keep calling so that my chances can be great. I’ve been with Comium from the time they came to Liberia in 2004. I once the US$50.00(Fifty United States Dollars) cash for call competition. I know the raff can be very clean and fair. So, I am not doubting the one for Monday,” Abel G. M. Kerkula said.
Mr. Ben said, customers have been challenged to recharge with US$3.00 between Monday and Sunday of each week to enable them have a chance of winning one of the motorbikes, which Comium has been giving out to lucky winners over the past months.
Since the establishment of Comium in 2004, it has awarded several prices to many of its subscribers; some ranging from money, cell phones, cars, air ticket, payment of hospital bills, car and two apartments.
The company was the first to introduce US$1.00 scratch cards on the market, which led to the drop in recharge cards in the country.
Besides that, it was the first to introduce roaming service—a service which allows a subscriber to use his or her same Comium number in any part of the world without calling internationally.
In addition to that, it introduced RBT (Ring Back Tone), which allows a subscriber to place in any music of his or her choice to entertain a caller.
