Celtel is on the verge of offering another house worth Le 350m in a raffle draw to be held in November. At a press conference held at the Mamba Point Ted Sauti-Phiri, Celtel’s managing director, disclosed that his company had the opportunity to change the lives of its customers as one good turn deserved another.
The purpose of the raffle, he went on, was to change the lives of their customers and that “as everyone aspires to change their lives they should join the Bomber network as we can change their lives in just one day”.
This raffle, he stressed, would be the biggest promotion and therefore called on all Sierra Leoneans to join the Celtel world.
Celtel, he said, was committed to change “and it’s up to Sierra Leoneans to decide to change by staying connected to our network.”
The bonanza, the Celtel MD said, was the biggest as they would be offering a three hundred and fifty million Leones house and other prizes including two monthly draws of a mini bus each; five customers would be a winning one million Leones each, and other consolation prizes of motor bikes, generators and DSTV set would also be grabbed.
The memory of the 2006 three hundred million Leones house, the Celtel MD said, “is still fresh in the minds of the people as that prize was won by a lady and her status changed in just a day”.
In launching the win a house promo the 2006 Celtel house winner, Claudette Amuzu, said her life changed the night she had the call from Abu Bakarr Kanu telling her that she had won the Celtel grand raffle which was a house.
The College of Medicine student told of how people were calling her, enquiring whether she was sure Celtel would build the house for her.
“But Celtel always keep their promise and I am a living testimony as I’m a proud winner of a three hundred million Leones house,” she disclosed.
Ms. Amuzu noted that since then she had stayed connected to Celtel as they provided the best service not only in the country but worldwide.
Highlighting the different facilities offered by Celtel, Ms Amuzu said the Bomber traffic which had the Flat and Kombra traffic catered for business people and youth and school going kids, and the Moonlight
traffic, she described as “a romantic tariff which helps school going children to compare notes and also lovers to communicate with each other.”
The Brand and Communications Officer, Ann Marie Ansumana, said “Celtel is not only programme oriented but customers’ oriented as reduction in traffic is what the customers are asking for”.
She added that, “the mechanics are simple as customers only need to top-up 200 unit within a week and the customer will qualify for the weekly draw”.
For the monthly draw customers, she went on, should top-up a minimum of 1,000 units and that winners for the weekly and monthly draw would automatically qualify for the grand draw.
