A TWENTY-THREE-YEAR-OLD undergraduate, Miss Gbemi Shotade, has emerged winner of Nigeria’s most innovative and exciting online competition, MMA2KIARACE, as it came to a close in Lagos at the weekend, with an impressive ceremony at the Murtala Muhammed Airport Two (MMA2), Lagos.

Some of the 300 participants who won gifts at various stages of the competition were also present to redeem to their gifts.
After a keen contest, which saw the finalists competing in four tasks, including aptitude test and a lucky draw, Shotade, a 200 level student of Business Administration at the University of Lagos, emerged winner of the Kia Rio grand prize.
The first and second runners up won getaway weekends for two in an Executive Suite and an Executive Double Room respectively, at the Le Meridien Ibom Hotel, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, with free return tickets on Dana Air.
