I sacrificed my dream of studying Engineering because we didn’t have money, but now I can go back to school to fulfill my dream.” These are the emotional words of Chigozie Okoh, a 30 year old young man who won N10m naira from the ongoing MTN Cash Quest Promo.

The first prize presentation of the ongoing MTN Cash Quest Promo turned out to be moments of tears of joy for winners as they took turns to receive their rewards in millions and other gift items.

The scenario was particularly touching as Chigozie Okoh, winner of N10m who hails from Ebonyi, narrated his life experience of how he had to drop out of school because of financial challenges. He hails from a family of six children. Being the first of the six, he had to forfeit his ambition of studying Engineering to pick up a menial job to support the parents in providing for the family.

All of this has become a thing of the past for him as MTN, an enabler and a critical national agent of social economic development has made his dream a possibility to achieve.

On how he reacted when he got the news of being a N10m winner, Chigozie said “I almost ran mad after I was told I had won N10 million. I have never seen such money in my life before.”

Speaking on how he intends to spend the money, he was quick to assert that he would use this opportunity to achieve his dream of becoming an Engineer by going back to school.

It is interesting to know that Chigozie is not the only one that fortune smiled on in the ongoing MTN Cash Quest Promo. Ikenna Ekeaku also won N10 million while Phibian Otache and Charles Ebochie were lucky winners of N1m each.

Other N1 million winners include Anuoluwapo Adesanmi, Adeyemi Buraimo, Okechukwu Okpala, Shamsu Umar, Fatima Abdullahi, ThankGod Akugbuo, Ameh Abba, Abayomi Garuba and Philip Dedeiabo. Several other lucky subscribers who participated in the promo won LCD Flat Screen TV sets and Nokia Lumia mobile phones.

MTN’s Chief Marketing Officer, Bayo Adekanmbi, who spoke during the presentation, said “MTN launched thispromoas a tool of empowerment to Nigerians on the network.

He further added that the MTN Cash Quest promo runs till March 13, 2015. Interested subscribers only need to dial *170# for free, to participate in the promo.
