It was double celebration for Simon Tyohemen as he not only won a brand new Hyundai Elantra saloon car in the on-going Gulder Ultimate Promo but also had his wife delivered of their first baby that same day. The 27 year-old student of Animal husbandry at the College of Agriculture Yandev, Benue State said he considered himself a lucky man to have received such blessing on the same day.
Speaking while receiving his prize at the headquarters of Nigerian Breweries Plc in Lagos, Tyohemen said the historic event will forever linger in his memory. He said tears of joy streamed from his cheeks as he received a call just few minutes after his wife gave birth to a baby boy that he has also won a brand new car.
Tyohemen said; “For me, it was double celebration because my wife gave birth the same day I won the car. I used to see the Gulder promo billboard in Gboko, Benue where I live, but I never had enough airtime on my phone to try it. But one day I just decided that any time I have enough credit on my phone I will try the promo. It was the work of God. I drank 3 bottles of Gulder. I text the code and kept on playing the game. I text up to 3 codes and then I stopped because my credit finished. I was surprised when they sent a message to me that I have won a car from Gulder Ultimate Promo. I never expected it; at first I thought it was 419. So they called me again that I should come to Lagos, I told my wife and she was very happy and she encouraged me that it is true, that it is real”.
