Lagos City Marathon Winners Get Car Gifts
The first male and female finishers of the 2019 Lagos City Marathon 10km race have received their car gifts.
Olufunmi Abdullateef emerged the first male finisher, while Hart Priscilla was the first female to complete the 10km race on February 2.
Both runners were presented their Kia Rio cars at the company’s office in Victoria Island on Thursday.
A visibly excited Priscilla while expressing her joy, said the car gift came at the right time – on Valentines Day.
“I really give thanks to God for this, He alone made it possible. I also thank Kia Motors for redeeming their pledge, and organisers of the Lagos City Marathon.
“To my family and friends, they played a role in this, and am grateful to them.” She said.
For Abdullateef, he was full of excitement but short of words.
“I don’t know how to say how happy I am. Infact I am the happiest man today for receiving this car. Thanks to Kia Motors and everyone who made this happen.”
According to Bounce News findings, each of the Kia Rio cost N8.1 million, and also comes with a five-year warranty.
Vice President of Kia Nigeria, Mr Olu Tikolo, who presented the cars to the winners alongside Lagos State Sports Commission chairman Kweku Tandoh, said Kia is excited to be part of the Lagos City Marathon.
He announced that the company has renewed the contract with the Lagos City Marathon for the next five years.
