Narrating how the journey for him began, he said; “I was on my way to apply for internship. I am a fresh graduate from the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus. I was in the car travelling to Nnamdi Azikwe Teaching Hospital when I saw a big billboard on the road saying “Millions of people will win big”. After some time, I saw that the poster was everywhere and I now read the details and found out how to go about it before I sent the text. In fact I wish I can reverse the hands of time to the night I was called that I won, so I can relive that experience. I was so excited and happy. I give God the glory”.
According to him; “I am going to show people that Gulder is the brand that says it and does what it says. In my local language, we say ‘Ekwueme’. That is, they are people who say and they do”, he said.
