Fidelity Bank Plc said it would sustain its mutually beneficial deals with customers and extend its support for the financial inclusion policy with business-friendly initiatives in 2017.

Economic recession further compounded by very high inflation and weakening consumer purchasing power, leaves very little opportunity for Nigerians to save. As a result, banks have to become very creative to develop products that will enhance saving culture among the people.

Besides, the bank said there is no better time to empower customers and boost their businesses than the New Year, as it brings new opportunities.


The Managing Director of the bank, Nnamdi Okonkwo, who was represented by the Executive Director, Shared Services, Chijioke Ugochukwu, made the disclosure at the fourth draw of the bank’s “Get Alert in Million” promo, in Lagos.

The bank chief said the promotional initiatives are structured in a win-win way, such that as people imbibe savings culture, businesses get more capital for operations and the bank’s bottom line improves too.

She said that what keeps the bank going are the success stories, even as it has taken many Nigerians higher.
Meanwhile, the bank made good its promise to winners of the fourth draw of “Get Alert in Million Promo”, as it yesterday presented various prizes in Lagos.

The promo, which is part of efforts by the bank to empower its customers, as well as reward for loyalty, is expected to give out a total of N105 million in nine months.

The bank said that during the period of the promo, it would have reinforced savings culture among its customers, boosted their cash reserves and more importantly, contributed to their wellbeing and that of the economy.

The bank had commenced the New Year with the fourth draw of the promo, where six customers from its operational zones split N9 million.

The draw was witnessed by officials of Consumer Protection Council, National Lottery Commission, the media and the bank’s control team.

The star prize winner of N3 million was Ifeanyi Victor, a businessman from Enugu, and Frank Chukwudi Sebastine from Rumuokwuta Branch, Port Harcourt, who won N2 million.

Others were Baba Ali Yusuf, from Maiduguri branch; Samuel Benjamin Idoroh from Abuja; Bolanle Gbadebo from Ado-Ekiti; and Attah Edugwu from Gbagada Lagos, who won N1 million each.

Ugochukwu said: “We are very so happy and glad that we are starting the New Year with a bang, giving away N9m in total across the six geo-political zone of Nigeria.

“One of the winners of the draws last year was a widow who won half a million naira. The student from Crown Poly will have her education settled with the N1 million she won.

“This is the fourth monthly draw and we have done one quarterly draw in December. By this time in February will be doing the fifth monthly and it goes on and on until the nine draws are completed. We still have N64 million to be won so there is still a lot of money.”
