According to him, he took a position inside the truck and was transferring the bags to the loaders on the ground, in the process, three bags of cement got torn with one hanging on the railings of the vehicle. In the process of scoping and rearranging the torn bags, a bag of goodies promo scratch card fell out, which he picked and placed inside his pocket.

He said, on scratching the card, I saw that I have won a saloon car. it was like a dream. I called the distributor and she said the promo is real. I appreciate Dangote
