Fidelity Bank Plc, one of the nation’s leading customer-friendly lenders, has given out N110 million in cash rewards to 185 winners in its ‘Get Alert in a Million Promo’ promo since October last year when it was flagged off, aside other rewards to lucky winners.
The bank’s Deputy Managing Director, Mohammed Balarabe, gave the hint Wednesday in Abuja at the final draw of the promo.
Balarabe, who also disclosed that the bank’s savings deposit increased to over N100 billion in the 2017 financial year, noted that the huge rise in deposits was directly linked to the implementation of financial inclusion strategy adopted by the bank.
This is even as he hinted that through the promo, the bank’s customer base also rose significantly during the year under review and impacted positively on savings deposits value.
The banker said: “Savings is a very important culture that is critical for the economy and the individual. On a personal level, you should save for a rainy day and also to bring into fruition that business you have always dreamt about.
“As a bank, promoting savings culture has also been very profitable for us.We have grown our savings deposit tremendously. In the past one year, we have grown by over N100 billion and that is a major feat for us”, Balarabe added
In the final draws of the promo, an Aba-based entrepreneur, Mr. Batholomew Nnalue, won the N10 million star prize while Ms. Nwasike Chidera and Ms Augustine Nkiru won N3 million each from the bi-monthly draws for the South East and South-South respectively.
Other winners include, Ms Imoedemhe Osi and Jennifer Nnanna from South-South and South East who won N2 million each.
In his comments, an official of the National Lottery Commission, Mr. Malachi Oahimire, confirmed the transparency of the draws selection process, adding that the winners emerge through random selection in accordance with specified rules.
Based on its past promotional initiatives since 2007, Fidelity Bank has given out over N355 million to its loyal customers while others have won houses, scholarships, electronics and other consolation prizes.
