God times await another set of 20 UBA customers that will join the rising number of millionaires to win N1.5m each, in the third edition of the UBA Wise Savers promo quarterly draw.
The bank said that new millionaires would emerge in a transparent draw in the presence of representatives from the Consumer Protection Council, National Lottery Regulatory Commission and the Lagos State Lottery Board at the raffle draw, which was set for July 31, at UBA’s corporate head office in Marina Road, Victoria Island Lagos.
The Group Head Marketing, United Bank for Africa, Dupe Olusola, said, “This is yet another great opportunity for new and existing customers to take the chance and get closer to their dreams. This will also add to the growing number of millionaires who have benefitted from the ongoing Wise Savers promo as a whopping N60m is still very much up for grabs.
“To qualify for the draws, new and existing customers of the bank are expected to save at least N10,000 each month for three consecutive months, before each draw date.
“Alternatively, they can make a one-time deposit of at least N30,000 to be saved for 90 days. The promo will run all through 2019 and a total of 80 people will have ultimately become millionaires at the end of the year.”
The bank disclosed that 40 customers had won N60m in the two previous draws, and it was expected to run till September ending, where another 40 customers from across the country would become millionaires, winning another N60m in the remaining two draws of the promo, since its commencement in September 2018.
The Executive Director, Lagos& West Bank, Mr Ayo Liadi, while speaking on the forthcoming raffle draw, noted that a lot of lives had been positively impacted, from the previous draws where 40 people went home with N1.5m.
“To qualify for the draws, new and existing customers of the bank are expected to save at least N10,000 each month for three consecutive months before each draw date. Alternatively, they can make a one-time deposit of at least N30,000 to be saved for 90 days. The promo will run all through 2019 and a total of 80 people will have ultimately become millionaires at the end of the year,” Olusola said.
She added that at the last draw, the lucky winners, who cut across all regions of the country, have joined the millionaires club in Nigeria.

According to Liadi: “The Wise Saver’s promo is no doubt genuine proof of how a bank that prioritises the growth and development of its customers, helps them grow and actualise their dreams. We are happy and impressed with the lives that have changed for good since we commenced in September 2018. Knowing full well that our job is not complete until our customer succeeds, we are now motivated and inspired to do more, so our customers can more easily achieve their dreams and goals in life. I am pleased that this cash prize can go a long way in the lives of many, to this end, UBA can only enjoin many more customers to be part of the promo, you never can tell, it could be you.”
The promo though is one of the ways the Pan African bank is using to shore up its customer profile in the competitive market, has also served as a marketing strategy to reward loyal customers and win
