For 13 lucky customers of Fidelity Bank Plc 2019, Christmas came early, after they were rewarded with N19m for remaining faithful to servicing their accounts.
They emerged in three categories of N3m, N2m, and N1m, during the second monthly and first bi-monthly draw of the “Get Alert in Millions Savings Promo” Season 4, at the bank’s Regional Office in Abuja.
This was in addition to 18 consolation prizes of television sets, generator sets, and refrigerators, with the Lagos Regional Office having the highest amount of N6m in total. The North West Region followed with a total of N4m; the Abuja Region had N3m cumulative amount; while the South East, South-South and southwest had N2m each.
When contacted on phone, one of the lucky winners, Chika Perpetua Maduike from Abuja Regional office, who won N2m, dismissed the call.
However, she finally made it to the office dancing and rejoicing saying “this Christmas will be a special one for me. I did not believe the caller but later decided to try and see if it was true and I have seen and I am very happy.
“I will advertise Fidelity Bank to everyone and tell them the bank is number one in Nigeria. Fidelity Bank, God bless you and take you to the next level in Jesus’ name,” she added.
For Olawale Abdulgafar, who won N1m: “When I was called and told I have won N1m, I was not excited because I thought it was a scam. I quickly rushed to a nearby Fidelity Bank and asked someone I know who said a promo was ongoing and I should go to the Regional office. I am here now and I have seen it is real and I am very happy because this Christmas will be joyous for me. I want to thank Fidelity Bank for keeping their words”.
Speaking earlier, the Managing Director/CEO, Nnamdi Okonkwo said lucky customers of the bank will go home with a total of N120m at the end of the promo in April 2020, pointing out that N15m was won during the first draw in Ibadan and N19m in Abuja, bringing the total to N34m after the second draw.
Represented by the Regional Bank Head, North West 1, Mannir Ringim, Okonkwo said the promo, which started in October 2019, was part of efforts at deepening the Financial Inclusion strategy of the government and ensure more people are financially included.
“As we speak, over 50m Nigerians are financially excluded, which represents about 45 percent of our population and we in Fidelity Bank want to bridge this gap and also encourage more people to embrace savings culture,” he noted.
Speaking on how people can qualify for the draw, Mrs. Janet Nnabuko, Head of Savings said both existing and new customers can win by simply topping their account with N10,000 for existing customers or someone opening a new account and building it up to N20,000. She further disclosed that to qualify for the star prize of N3m one needs to build his account to N50,000 while aspiring for the Grand prize of N10m, one only has to grow his account to N200,000.
Abuja Regional Head, Mrs. Vanessa Mordi said the bank was people-friendly and remains committed to empowering Small and Medium Enterprises and also supporting individuals with surprise packages like the Get Alert in Millions Savings Promo.
