Fidelity Bank Plc has rewarded its savings account customers with gifts and cash prizes worth millions of naira.
The winners emerged from the lender’s first draw in its ongoing Get Alert in Millions promo, where it is expected to give out N105 million at the end of the exercise.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the promo in Lagos, its Managing Director/CEO, Nnamdi Okonkwo, said the promo, which is the sixth in a series, would help to deepen the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN’s) financial inclusion project and improve the standard of living of its customers.
He said winners in yesterday’s promo went home with N9 million cash prizes and several consolation prizes. The star prize winner, Abiche Mary, won N3 million while Umar Yahaya, Ogadimma Jacintha, Damilola Olufemi won N1 million each. Consolation prizes of refrigerators, generating sets were also won.
He said the bank, as a highly reputable financial institution, is committed to satisfying the needs of its customers, with the promo meant to encourage customers and members of the public to imbibe a savings culture.
“There is a correlation between savings and economic development. Savings serve as a veritable instrument for capital mobilisation to finance aggregate investment required for economic growth. As an active participant in the Nigerian economy, we are supporting the federal government by making savings available for critical infrastructure deployments that would aid socio-economic development,” he said.
Okonkwo, who was represented by the bank’s Executive Director, Shared Services and Products, Chijioke Ugochukwu, said: “In all, over 200 winners will emerge inclusive of consolation prizes such as fridges, generators among others.”
