Several United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc customers have been rewarded in the bank’s seventh Bumper Savings Account Promo.
More than 200 winners have emerged from the initiative since the promo began last year.
The promo is geared towards rewarding loyalty and encouraging customers to cultivate a savings habit that helps to stay afloat especially during challenging times.
The electronic raffle draw, which is the seventh since inception, was held at Kairo’s Hub on Wednesday, and was monitored by relevant regulatory bodies including the National Lottery Regulatory Commission and Consumer Protection Council.
Winners who emerged from the draw include Olunwa Ambrose who smiled home with the star prize of N2 million, while Saheed Adediran won N1.2 million rent for a year. Adewunmi Sobowale, another lucky winner, got N500,000 shopping allowance.
Others who smiled home with N100,000 cash prizes were Bayode Oluwaseun, Archibong Gift, Yakubu Fali, Alaegbu Uchenna, Onyenwenyi Confidence, Maria Onyeneke, Emmanuel Kalu, Aramide Temitope, Ijeoma Okika, Taiwo Odofin, Daina Egbe, Ighodalo Thompson, Mercy Effiong, Alice Gabriel, Imrana Bello, Onyedika Umeji, Uzoma Timothy, Adewole Idowu, Opeyemi Kolawole and Israel Daniel.
The promo is open to account holders of the bank from the six geographical zones in Nigeria, and customers only need to open a UBA Bumper account and save a minimum of N5,000 in a month to qualify. The more multiples of N5,000 they saved, the higher their chances of winning cash prizes and other juicy benefits.
Mr Olunwa who won N2 million could not hide his excitement when he was contacted over the phone. “This is indeed great. Thank you UBA. You people cannot understand the great impact you have made in my life with this reward. It will transform my life greatly. May God almighty bless this bank and all those who conceptualised the UBA Bumper Account Savings Promo,” he said.
UBA’s head of personal banking, Ogechi Altraide, who presented gifts to some of the winners who were physically present at the event told customers that UBA places them at the very heart of its business which, according to her, is why the bank remains passionate about their overall success and added that this has consistently been proven in numerous ways which is why the bank has continually invested in cutting-edge technology to improve its service delivery and its overall aim of delighting customers.
“We know that this promo will put lasting smiles on the faces of our customers and will also assure them that UBA truly values them,” Altraide said.
