A bachelor has emerged as the Star Prize Winner of N5 million at the ongoing Dangote Cement Promotion tagged “Bag of Goodies Season 3”.
The winner Mamza Joshua Ayuba was presented the star Prize award in Abuja by the Group Managing Director, Dangote Industries Limited, Mr. Olakunle Alake.
The 35-year-old Ayuba who was overwhelmed by the prize is said to have been preparing for his wedding. He described the award as a dream comes true.
“I was told that I was a lucky winner of Five Million Naira. I thought it was a joke. I did not believe that the Dangote Spell and Win Promo was real in the first place, so it came as a surprise. I could not speak for a moment,” he said.
The construction supervisor disclosed that he bought close to 200 bags of Dangote cement when it happened.
“When I got the alphabet O, which eluded me after collecting the other alphabets to complete the spelling of ‘D A N G O T E’ I was elated. Honestly, I am happy right now and wish to become a distributor of Dangote cement as soon as possible” Mamza said.
Five other lucky winners emerged aside the star prize winner, leaving home with N1 million each while others got consolation prizes such as fridge and television sets.
The Regional Director, Sales, Dangote Cement Plc, George Bankole, described the ongoing “Bag of Goodies Season 3” National Consumer Promotion as a way of giving back to the consumers and retailers of the Dangote Group.
“Customers and distributors of the product, as well as other Nigerians, can be millionaires many times over. The promo, initiated by the President/CE, Dangote Industries, Aliko Dangote is all about changing the lives of Nigerians, especially with the current situation of economic challenges facing the Country,” he said.
The Pan-Africa Cement manufacturer had weeks ago unveiled a Spell Dangote and become Millionaires in a season 3 of its Bag of Goodies National Consumer promo, in Lagos during which the Company announced that 500 consumers would win a million naira each, while another 100 would win N5million Naira within four months.
The Season 3 promo is expected to produce 125 millionaires monthly with N1 billion in total to be won both cash and otherwise.

The exercise was also conducted under the watch of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission which was represented by Mrs. Ikwo Odiongenyi of the Licensing and Operation unit.
