ANOTHER 20 winners emerged at the Save 4 Shelter promotional campaign by Fidelity Bank Plc following a random draw that took place at the bank’s head office in Lagos, Tuesday.
The winners, who emerged from the six geopolitical zones of South East, South South, North, South West, including Lagos and Abuja, carted away N6 million and 12 consolation prizes. The cash prizes included N500,000 (six customers), N1 million and star prize of N2 million were won in the last draw of the promo, which commenced eight months ago.
Speaking at the event, the Acting Managing Director of the bank, Mr. Balarabe Lawal, said the bank decided to introduce the promo to build strong savings culture among its customers and the generality of Nigerians.
“It is also our way of supporting people’s aspiration to rent their own property or own their own houses,” Lawal said.
He said that although this is the last draw on the promo, the bank was planning another promo which will be coming up soon.
He advised the existing and prospective customers of bank to look forward for better things to come.
A representative of Consumer Protection Council (CPC), Mr. Joshua Ngga, who was present to witness the draw, vouched to the integrity and transparency of the entire programme, saying he believes the whole process was free and fair.
“You can see how transparent the process has been; you the media do the punching and here and then the people are called to inform them about the winning. Why I say that I can vouch for the process is that we take down names and phone numbers of the winners and after now, we also have the mandate to put calls across to the people to ensure that the prizes are not withdrawn later,” he said.
