The ‘Season of Surprises’ initiative, is MTN’s way of showing care and commitment to Nigerians in the spirit of the festivities. Since the launch of the 2018 edition on December 1, MTNers (Staff of MTN) have visited 90 locations (including hospitals, educational institutions, fuel stations, IDP camps, etc) in Nigeria to spread the surprise and kindness. In these places, gifts of vouchers, free tickets, bottles of oil, bags of rice, etc, were distributed amidst loads of laughter and gleeful dancing.
