Ukpu, a native of Isoko South Local Government Area in Delta State,
disclosed that he joined the promo about three weeks ago by dialing

the minimum. My target was either the house or the car. Last week, while
talking to my wife, I prophesied that I will win either a house or a car

in Warri here today. They have done well and I encourage Nigerians to
keep recharging to be able to win more prizes, especially the houses and
