How did you hear about the promo?
I did not hear about the promo until I was called by an official of the bank that I had won an all-expense paid trip to an international holiday destination in the on-going promo. Initially, I was surprised since I did not know that the bank was running a promo until I confirmed it from my account officer.

Is this prize the greatest benefit you have received from Sterling Bank or any Nigerian bank?
Of course, yes. This is the first greatest benefit I have won in my life and therefore, I am grateful to the bank for the prize. I am also grateful to the bank for giving me the opportunity to travel to Dubai, in the United Arab Emirate to spend the Valentine’s day. It’s something I would have loved to do on my own, but it has made it easier for me for free. I am looking forward to having fun during the trip. I have heard so many people talk about Dubai and I have been desiring it. I’m happy that Sterling Bank has made my dream a reality.


How has Sterling Bank’s products and services helped you to reach your goals?
I like the bank’s mobile banking app and the internet banking platform. The services of the bank are also good, very good. I opened the account while I was serving as a youth corper in one of the local government areas in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital in 2012; that was about six years ago for my NYSC allowance to be paid into it. It was my Allawee account. Some officials of the bank and those of another bank had come to market banking activities to us then and I decided to go with Sterling Bank and since then I have been running the account till date.

I am presently working in Awka, in Anambra State as an audit personnel with Cosmila Suites and Hotels as one of the management employees.

Will you recommend Sterling Bank to your family members and friends?
I don’t think there will be any more recommendation than this prize that I have won. Yes, I will recommend Sterling Bank to my family members and friends, but this prize is enough recommendation already.

How will you describe your overall banking experience with Sterling Bank?
Funny enough, after my national youth service; I abandoned the account and it was sometime last year that I went to reactivate it and in just less than a year, see what Sterling Bank has done for me! It’s been fantastic experience over the years.
