According to the statement, the promo, targeted at both prepaid and post-paid customers, is a point-based promo launched on June 18, 2015 and lasted for 60 days.
"Customers were required to accumulate points by carrying out activities such as airtime recharge, voice call, browsing, SMS, etc., in order to increase their chances of winning.

The statement quoted the President of the Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry Awards, Mr Tony Ejinkonye, as saying that the modality for selecting the 'Most Innovative Business Idea' was based on the number of new products and services rolled out by the organisation.
