No fewer than six customers of Dangote Cement Plc in Lagos on Tuesday emerged millionaires in its ongoing ‘Bag of Goodies Season 3’ national consumer promo.
The company said this in a statement issued on Tuesday by the Media and Communication Personnel, Dangote Industries Ltd, Francis Awowole-Browne.
It also said other people won prizes such as television sets, fridges, standing fans, and power generating set.
The Pan-Africa Cement manufacturer recently unveiled a Spell Dangote and Become Millionaires in Season 3 of its Bag of Goodies National Consumer promo.
The company announced that 500 consumers would win N1 each, while another 100 would win N5 million within four months.
National Sales Director, Dangote Cement, Funmi Sanni, said the company believes that no amount is too much to splash on its customers, adding that “they are the reason for its existence”.
According to her, the promo was deliberately planned for this period to help customers and consumers of Dangote Cement survive the hard times brought upon businesses by the COVID-19 disruptions.
Congratulating the winners, Sanni said the promo was aimed at giving back to consumers who were the company’s pillar of support and also to encourage them for more patronage.
She added that 500 customers would win N1 million each, 100 customers to win N5 million each, coupled with N32 million worth of other gifts.
“We value our customers, they are the reason for our being in business and apart from the fact that we produce the best quality cement in the industry, we are the most caring cement company in the industry.
“The promo started July 5. We say thank you and we will continue to appreciate Nigerians for their patronage and loyalty. I urge them to continue to do business with us whenever the need for cement arises.

“We create value through quality products, exceptional service, competitive pricing and unparalleled consumer value proposition.
“We are also the cement company with highest number of variety of cement for various application.
“Our cement is such that when you use our variety for plastering, you may not think of painting the surface again, because it is very smooth and colourful and only Dangote can produce that,” Sanni said.
On his part, Dangote Cement Regional Sales Director, Lagos and Ogun, Dolao Ali, described the winning as the first set of many to come.
“Lagos is where the action is and the first-star prize of N5 million winner will come from Lagos,” he said.
Ali assured the customers in Lagos that they were in for a good deal with the company, as they were presented with a better opportunity to win.
He also attributed the possibility to the size of the Lagos market, describing it as the biggest in the country.
The Zonal Coordinator, National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Lagos State, Nkiru Onuzulu, said the commission had gone through every detail of the promotion and certified it good for the cement consumers.
She commended the management of Dangote Cement for its transparency in conducting the promotion.
“We have followed through since the commencement of the promo and have monitored to see that everything is done according to rules and Dangote Cement has passed all tests.
“This is the reason we are to show all that the promo is real and fraud-free as a regulatory body. We are into it together for the sake of accountability, professionalism, and equity,” she said.
A block moulder, Akeem Kolawole, who emerged as a winner, described his winning as surprising.
Kolawole said he was not sure the promo was real, but seeing his account credited changed that perception.
Kolawole added that the development was timely, given the prevailing economic downturn that has negative impact on his business.
