Pan African financial institution, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc has again given its loyal customers reason to cheer as it rewarded 100 loyal customers with N100,000 each in the UBA Bumper account draw.
The draw, which took place at the UBA head office on Tuesday, was held via Facebook platform in strict compliance with social distancing rules as directed by the federal and Lagos State Government where 100 more customers emerged winners through a transparent draw.
When contacted, the customers, who emerged winners of the draw, agreed that the total reward of N10 million was timely and would be very useful in assisting them especially in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic currently ravaging the world with attendant effect on incomes of individuals.
UBA’s Group Head, Consumer and Retail Banking, Jude Anele, spoke about the bank’s excitement to be able to put smiles on the faces of as much as 100 customers at this critical time when livelihoods and lives are being threatened by the Covid-19 outbreak.
“These are difficult times indeed with little to cheer about because people are going through trying times. However, for us in UBA, we want our customers to know that we are in these together, that is why we have taken it upon ourselves to reward those that have kept our business going with their loyalty. With this reward, we want to encourage them to stay happy and safe even as they continue to aim for their dream regardless of the present challenges,” Anele said
Anele noted that the bumper draw was also in line with the bank’s mission of creating superior value for its stakeholders while encouraging savings cultures among Nigerians, adding that “we have in recent times deepened our focus on the most important aspect of our business – the customers we serve. Hence, our huge investment in technology to make banking easier and seamless across all our product channels and that is why we most recently introduced new offerings such as this Bumper Account with our customer in mind as it is expected to deliver improved value to them.
Explaining the modalities for the draw, Anele said that all new and existing customers needed to do to qualify for the draw is to ensure that they have a minimum deposit of N5,000 in their UBA Bumper Account.
“Current UBA customers are to dial *919*20*1# to migrate to the UBA Bumper Account whilst potential customers should dial *919*20# if interested in opening a UBA Bumper Account,” he added.
In the first draw, which was held live during the official launch in Lagos, a total of 100 customers emerged winners as the Bumper to Bumper Crooner, Wande Coal serenaded guests with his famous hit songs to the delight of all present.
The Group Head, Marketing & Customer Experience, Michelle Nwoga, explained that the Bumper Account was created specifically with the customer in mind, adding that UBA truly puts its customers first and will stop at nothing to ensure they have the right solutions to support their needs.
“We are committed to delivering exceptional service and will always seek to excite our customers at every interaction. We back our words with action and that is why a total of 100 customers emerged winners at the last draw which also took place here,” she said.
