The customers, who won a total sum of N11 million, would be given their prize next week.
Mrs Chijioke Ugochukwu, the bank’s Executive Director, Shared Services, stated this at the 8th Get Alert in Millions Promo Prize draws held in Lagos.
Ugochukwu said that the bank had so far distributed a total of N74 million since the promotion commenced in August 2016.
According to her, the aim of the promo is to strengthen savings culture among Nigerians.
She said the N11 million won, brings the total money so far distributed under the initiative to N85 million.
“This is a journey we began about eight months ago and in all, we have given out N74 million before today and today we are giving out N11 million,’’ Ugochukwu said.
She added that the bank still had N20 million to give out to lucky customers at the next quarterly and mega draw, which would be the last draw under the initiative.
Ugochukwu said that the bank had started working on another initiative that would be made known to the public at the appropriate time.
She said that the bank identifies very strongly with the yearnings and aspirations of its customers and would continue to ensure efficient service delivery.
The executive director said that the bank had created many millionaires with the alert promo.
She, however, urged those who were not yet customers of the bank to embrace the promo to empower themselves.
“For those who are yet to be part of this success story and for those who are yet to become millionaires, we say to you not to hesitate in taking advantage of the opportunity,’’ Ugochukwu added.
She stated that the promotion had increased the bank’s deposits and financial inclusion with first time bankers using the opportunity to open accounts.
Ugochukwu said that the promo was instituted to enhance savings culture among its customers.
She stated that winners emerged from a transparent randomisation process which was approved by the bank’s control team and witnessed by officials from the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) and other regulators.
Aside from the cash prize won by customers, other consolations prizes ranging from refrigerators and generating sets had been won.
