Fidelity Bank Plc has given out a total cash prize of N8 million and 12 consolation prizes to its faithful customers in the fifth round of its ‘Get Alert in Millions Savings Promo’.
The cash prize winner for Lagos zone, Mr Ifeanyichukwu Okenwa, was rewarded with N1 million, while consolation prices of refrigerator and generator set went to Charles Igwe and Okodo Chukwuebuka respectively.
Speaking at the 5th Prize Presentation ceremony for Lagos zone, at the bank’s headquarters in Lagos, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the financial institution, Mr. Nnamdi Okonkwo, who was represented at the occasion by the Executive Director, Shared Services, Mrs Chijioke Ugochukwu, said for the month of February, six cash prizes of N8 million and 12 consolation prizes of refrigerators and generator sets were being given out to 18 winners that emerged from the six geo-political zones of the country where the bank operates.
“This is our sixth promo so far but it’s becoming one of the most widely accepted, most popular and most timely promo. It’s a unique promo, and this time we’re focusing largely on cash prizes,” he said.
Giving more insight into the promo, Chairman of the Promo Committee, Mr Ubaro Odeghe, said the essence of the promo was to drive the savings culture by ensuring that the bank’s customers and indeed all Nigerians imbibe the culture of saving, saying “secondly, we’re also rewarding faithful, loyal customers of the bank that have been banking with us for a very long time and to continue to grow their savings accounts with Fidelity Bank”.
“Beyond the CSR drive or initiative of the bank, it’s clearly one way of driving the financial inclusion strategy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), and also imbibing the savings culture among Nigerians,” Odeghe added.
On his part, Senior Manager, Regulation and Monitoring, National Lottery Regulatory Commission, Mr Nwakuche Durugo, said: “The event today is the end of a process. The process was credible and transparent. We thank Fidelity Bank for this effort, and we want other banks to emulate them in rewarding and empowering their customers.”
