The management of Dangote Cement Plc has said the expected 100 N5m star-prize winners in its on-going ‘Bag of goodies national consumer promo, season 3’ will be offered the opportunity to be cement distributors if they wish.
This was disclosed in a statement by the company in Ilorin, Kwara State, at the presentation of N20m cash to three star-prize winners and five other N1m winners that the move was to ensure the winners invest the money profitable and become business owners.
The Regional Sales Director, South-West, Dangote Cement, Mr Tunde Mabogunje, while welcoming the winners and guests to the presentation ceremony said, “The promotion was specifically designed to alleviate poverty among the customers giving the global biting economic reality.”
He noted that the Chairman of Dangote Cement, Aliko Dangote is a compassionate person who cherishes wealth distribution.
Mabogunje urged the customers to continue to patronise Dangote Cement to widen their chances of winning.
He said those who won N5m never expected they could win so much money and that no matter how bad the nation’s economy was, the star prize of N5m would go a long way in easing the economic tension in homes.
In his remark, the Company’s Head, Route to Market, Mr Kayode Akin-Bamidele, said, “It was a deliberate plan to help the winners invest their prize money to generate more money.”

“That is why we say, once you win N5m, come and become our distributor, it’s more money for you because as you know Dangote Cement is in thing in the industry and that is how you can generate wealth for yourself and make more money.”
