Scores of subscribers of Glo Mobile and other key stakeholders from Ghana will be airlifted to Abuja, Nigeria on Thursday, January 5, 2017
to watch the epochal 25th edition of the most prestigious soccer gala event on the continent – the Glo-CAF Awards live.
A statement from Glo said the winning guests will be given deserved royal treatment and will be flown back to Accra the day after watching the event. As many as 300 such guests from the company's areas of operation across the continent will be at the event, courtesy Glo. From Ghana, 25 subscribers will be selected. Apart from the promo, other stakeholders will also be part of the trip.
However, to be part of this great show and rub shoulders with football legends, a subscriber needs to participate in the promo tagged: “Win A Seat Among The Stars”.
