When Ms Klutse was called on phone by the Director of Marketing of the Graphic Communications Group Limited (GCGL), Mr Franklin Sowa, to inform her that she had won the promo, she said she was excited for winning the cash prize and promised to continue participating in the draw.

Promotion

The promotion, organised by the GCGL, in partnership with Devtraco, is to reward loyal readers of the GCGL newspapers and online news.

It started on July 23, 2018, and will end on January 22, 2018, with winners being announced on a weekly and monthly basis.
Prizes such as mobile phones, cash prizes of GH₵ 1,000 daily, GH₵ 5,000 for two winners monthly, an iPhone monthly and 10 Samsung smart phones monthly, are up for grabs.

A two-bedroom house is also up for winning after 90 days and 180 days, respectively.

How to enter

Readers are expected to buy the various brands of the GCGL newspapers, comprising the Daily Graphic, The Mirror, Graphic Showbiz, Junior Graphic, Graphic Sports and Graphic Business and submit a promotional cut out at designated points across the country.

Commenting on the draw, the acting Managing Director of GCGL, Mr Ransford Tetteh, encouraged the public to continually buy and read the newspapers and also participate in the draw.

He apologised to readers for the inability of the companies involved in the promo to carry out the daily draw as initially promised. Rather, he explained all the separate daily draws would be done on a weekly basis to select the winners.

“The nature of our business cannot permit us to have our daily draws as we promised. We, therefore, apologise to our readers for the inability to hold the daily draws,” he said.

He encouraged readers to make it a point to read the newspapers of GCGL, stressing that they were educative and very informative.

“We are not using this promo to just maximise our sales and make profits but also to encourage buyers of the newspapers to read their content to be up to speed with national information on a daily basis,” he added.
