MTN subscriber wins US$60,000 house
A Lonestar Cell MTN subscriber only identified as Mohammed, from Greenville Sinoe County, has been declared winner of the company’s three bedroom house raffle, ‘Win a House Promotion.’
The promotion, which climaxed Tuesday, 30 December during a grand raffle draw ran from October to 26th December, 2014.
Mohammed’s mobile number appeared on the company’s projector screen Tuesday after which he was called and declared winner.
Over one hundred nine thousand (109,000) subscribers participated in the grand draw, which saw Mohammed emerging in flying colors.
The lucky subscriber will now notify Lonestar Cell MTN where he wants his three bedrooms house to be constructed.
The GSM giant said it couldn’t build the house in the absence of a winner as he will have to identify the place where he wants his dream house built and the company will purchase the land, work with the winner and the construction company to erect the building.
The cost of the house is put at US$60,000 and the winner will give his own designed of the building. Lonestar Cell MTN Brand and Communication Manger, Winston Doe, said his company decided to allow the winner choose a place of his choice for the house.
“We could not just construct any house or build it anywhere; why if we would have built the house somewhere that our winner doesn’t like; we are here to satisfy our subscribers in this promotion, only our winner has to tell us the kind of house to build and the design he wants,” he stressed.
Doe noted that Lonestar Cell MTN will continue to change the lives of its subscribers; he added that there is more promotion coming up in 2015 that will impact the lives of the Liberian people.
He said that every step made during construction process will be announced by Lonestar Cell MTN even during the turning over ceremony of the house to the owner.
From October to the grand raffle draw on 26 December there have been weekly winners of buddle of zincs, ceiling, cement, bathroom set and paints, among others.
