United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, a pan-African financial institution, has rewarded ten of its loyal customers with a total amount of N10 million in the current UBA Savings Promo’s quarterly draws.
This promo, which is held every quarter, is designed to thank the bank’s long-term customers and to provide new opportunities for potential and intending customers to join the increasing number of UBA millionaires who have previously benefited from many promotions.
The virtual and clear electronic draw, which took place on Friday, was broadcast live through Zoom and the Facebook platform in strict accordance with the Federal and Lagos State Government’s social distancing laws.
Osita Ede, UBA’s Head of Personal Banking, spoke to participants shortly before the draws and said there is no better time to give back and delight customers than now, when people need all the help they can get to make life more meaningful.
“As a bank, UBA has been rewarding customers for several years now, from the Wise Savers Promo to Bumper Draws, and now this,” he said. We’ve been doing this to make a difference in people’s lives and to express gratitude to our customers for their business. This is also a chance to thank them for their long-term commitment to the bank.
The promotion, according to Ede, is also a way of encouraging savings in order to promote financial inclusion, as statistics show that many Nigerians are still underbanked.
“One of our main goals is to encourage our customers to save on a regular basis. We’re here to help them and inspire them to save and develop as well, because we know how important they are to everything we do;” Ede clarified.
Peace Ibadie, a representative of the National Regulatory Commission, who was present at the draws, congratulated the 10 winners and praised the bank for its efforts to reward loyal customers, especially in such a difficult economic and business climate.
“Congratulations to all the winners; I am honored to have been a part of this; UBA is always transparent in their promotions, as we can attest to. It is important that the bank consciously promotes the culture of saving. “Congratulations once more,” she said.
Emeka Onyemauche, Ezeigbokwe Oluebube Purity, Omoniyi A Jaiyeola, Olawale Omotayo Idowu, Zaharadeen Yandaki Umar, Aliyu Yaro Bakari, Samuel Enan Esua, Joseph Eze, Deborah Folusho Adebayo, and Lucia Chinyere Adim are the winners who cut through all of Nigeria’s zones.
When contacted by phone, the winners expressed their gratitude to the bank, saying that the money would help them meet their immediate needs, particularly in these difficult times.
Samuel Enan Esan, one of the winners, was overjoyed to learn that he had won N1 million and was full of praises. He expressed his gratitude by saying, “Thank you, UBA.”
Aliyu Yaro Bakari, who was overjoyed at the news, exclaimed, “Oh I am very happy, UBA is the best, you are the best, thank you very much,” when he found out he was one of the N1 million recipients.
To be eligible for the promotion, new and existing bank customers must make a one-time deposit of at least N30,000 before each draw date. Goal, Bumper, Next Gen, Savings, Teens & Kiddies account holders are eligible for this draw.
Apart from the savings promo, which is held every three months, the bank also has the UBA Bumper Promo, which is held monthly and rewards the first three winning customers with N2 million, a year’s rent for N1.2 million, and N500,000, respectively, as well as 20 consolation prizes of N100,000 each.
