Winners Emerge in Fidelity’s Save 4 Shelter Promo
Fidelity Bank Plc, one of Nigeria’s top banks in terms of capital adequacy ratio (CAR), has handed over the keys and title deeds of a 4-bedroom duplex to Mrs. Clara Ego Ibedu, who emerged star prize winner in the sixth draw of the Save 4 Shelter Savings promo.
With this recent development, Ibedu has become the second woman after Hajiya Hadiza Suleiman in Abuja to win the first of three magnificent promotion houses. The other superbly furnished edifice in the garden city of Port Harcourt was won by Edozen Adodo, an apprentice in his mid-30s.
Christopher Oluwaseun received a cheque of N2 million while Godwin Obiora and Kazeem Fatai were presented with a cheque of N500,000 and a refrigerator respectively. Also, two-year-old Angela Oluwanifemi Apoesho received a brand new Thermocool power generating set from the bank. Similar prize presentations held concurrently across the different regions of the bank.
Speaking at the occasion, managing director and chief executive of the bank, Nnamdi Okonkwo, said the promo is strategically designed to advance the financial inclusion mandates of the federal government.
Okonkwo, who was represented by the executive Director, Lagos and South-west, Mrs. Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe, said the rationale behind the promo was simply to help reduce Nigeria’s housing deficit.
“Of course there is a huge housing gap in Nigeria. The idea is that people should save to be able to own their homes which supports the federal government’s housing policy,” he said.
Alluding to the correlation between savings and economic development, Okonkwo pointed out that the promo was a unique opportunity for the bank to reward customers for their undivided loyalty and patronage.
He said, “we have an existing culture of rewarding customers at Fidelity Bank but we decided to raise the stakes with the Save 4 Shelter Promo to give our customers a chance to own their homes. It has been a great experience thus far.
