One of Sierra Leone’s fastest developing mobile tele companies, Millicom Sierra Leone Limited-Tigo in its millionaire promotional raffle draw, has made a ‘junks’ (used clothes) seller sleepless after realizing that he has won a million Leones. Abubakarr Koroma, who is the winner of the August 17 draw, is one of the fortunate winners among the 18,000 qualifiers for that draw.
Mr Koroma explained that, “I went home sleepless thinking about my prize,” adding that, “I was at Garrison Street when I received a call informing me that I had won a million Leones in Tigo’s raffle draw. I thought the caller was joking, or it was a trick by one of my friends.”
“When I called Tigo and realized that it was not a joke, I stopped selling and went home. I was unable to sleep throughout the night thinking about the prize I had won,” he emphasized. “The time I bought the Tigo sim I was stressed out, by then I was having some problems with my girlfriend, but with the Tigo sim I was able to settle the dispute and at the same time grabbed a million Leones. Isn’t that wonderful?” He asked.
The other lucky winners in this week’s draw, which occasioned in Makeni, were Elizabeth Baimba, Hawa M Sesay and Abdulai Jalloh.
