In its bid to ensure a memorable yuletide, MTN Nigeria has started giving various gifts to Nigerians in Lagos.
The programme is called Season of Surprises Give Back Initiative.
The company said the give back initiative, which started at the Police barracks in Falomo, Ikoyi, where MTN surprised the residents with various gifts such as food items and household gadgets, would be replicated all over the country over the next two weeks.
Speaking on the initiative, The General Manager, Consumer Marketing, MTN Nigeria, Oluwole Rawa, said that the initiative aimed to bring back the essence of the season which is giving and showing acts of kindness.
“We understand the importance of the season, which is why we have come up with this drive. We want to surprise Nigerians with a random act of kindness which is the essence of the season. As always, we aim to spur show act of kindness and give to others,” he said.
While encouraging Nigerians to watch out for the Y’ello train as it will be travelling across the country, Rawa also revealed that the season of surprises would also touch the online community.
An Inspector of the Nigerian Police Force and resident of the barrack, Wole Oguntoye, who got a gift of a television set at the event, commended MTN for the kind gesture, urging other companies to emulate MTN and show appreciation to Nigerians for their patronage all year long.
