Visafone Nigeria has rolled-out a plan to extend love to couples, friends and family members on its network with a view to sharing an unforgettable experience, joy and excitement during the forth coming Saint Valentine day celebration.

Tagged the Valentine Benefits, the plan is to reward its subscribers (both new and existing) with exciting prizes. By sending an SMS, subscribers can win any of the 50 prizes such as 2.9 kva generators, LCD televisions, Washing machines, free airtime, Home theatres and CK music phones.

The company's DGM, Marketing and Strategy, Clifford Onyeike, said "Visafone is using this period of world-known social celebration to express love to Nigerians and further create a platform for empowerment. This is another way to demonstrate our commitment to continually add value to the lives of our subscribers."

He urged subscribers to take advantage provided by the initiative as it would give a wonderful opportunity for Nigerians to win several prizes.

Speaking on how subscribers can participate in the scheme, Onyeike said all the subscriber needs to do is simply text the word LOVE to 35100 and he/she stands a chance of winning any of the exciting prizes, adding that prizes would be presented to winners at the end of the exercise, while two people will win a ticket for dinner weekly.

Onyeike said "These two winners that will emerge each week will in turn get opportunity to invite one person of their choice each to the dinner.

“Last year, VISAFONE engaged in a similar initiative, where it gave out lots of prizes to subscribers, thus making the Valentine celebration a memorable one for our subscribers”.

VISAFONE Valentine Benefits, which is already on, is expected to end on
