Access Bank Plc has rewarded two of its customers that participated in its on-going “Smart Savers” promo of the bank with a brand new Hyundai i10 car each.
In a joint draw held for the months of March and April, held in Lagos, Mr. Ali Ahummed and Mr. Abdulrasaq Ayinde were rewarded with a brand new Hyundai i10 car each, having emerged winners for the two respective months.
Speaking at the event, the Group Head, Channel Services, Access Bank, Mr. Segun Ogbonnewo, said the essence of the smart savers was to give financial access to people who were not using banking services and also to support the financial inclusion policy of the federal government.
“Today is the first draw of the promo that we as Access Bank have embarked upon and it’s about what we call “smart savers product in Access Bank. The ‘smart savers’ is a product that is designed to give financial access to people who are usually, not users of bank product. The Federal Government embarked on what is called ‘financial inclusion’ and the Central Bank as well as other commercial banks is leading this initiative,” Ogbonnewo said.
“And the purpose for that is to be able to get many more Nigerians who ordinarily, do not use banking services, to get involved in banking services, that is, to participate and benefit from the advantages of using banks. And so, we have different kinds of saving. So this is just one of the savings products that can get benefits to them,” he added.
Speaking further, Ogbonnewo said: “What we’ve actually done here today is to reward those people that have participated in this, and by rewarding them it’s to be able to tell them to showcase to their neighbours and go around with it. And that if the own the smart savers account in Access Bank; there are benefits and things that they can enjoy.
“The promo started early in the year that is February. We have four draws, and today, we’re combining two draws, draw for March and draw for April. Two cars have been won today. So we are going to have the last draw which is draw for the month of May.”
