When I got the call that I had won, I doubted it. I assumed it was a fraudulent call. After series of calls I was asked to come to Lagos. When I arrived in Lagos, I was still in doubt. It sounded too good to be true. But I am glad today that it is indeed true. My joy knows no bounds. I am very grateful to Indomie.”
Mrs. Lasisi Dada, Miss Seun Taiwo from Lagos State, Mr. Tijani Ahmed and Mr. Akintunde Yusuf from Ogun State were also presented with N100, 000 cheques.
