FBNBank announces winners for ‘Save and Win Promo’

Managing Director and CEO of FBNBank, Gbenga Odeyemi

FBNBank has announced winners in the third mini-draw of its ‘FBNBank Save and Win Promo’ to appreciate their clients and to deepen the clarion call to Ghanaians to develop a savings culture.

The winners of the mini-draw’s third edition will receive their prizes at the grand-draw next month; however, ten lucky customers of the second edition – who were announced a month ago as having met the terms and conditions of the promo – were awarded prizes including mobile phones and airtime.

In an interview, Managing Director and CEO, Gbenga Odeyemi noted that at the promo’s end on October 31, there will be a grand-draw in November at which the 10 grand draw winners would be picked after which prizes would be presented to them.

He also said that the promo encourages a savings culture in Ghana, and that developing a savings culture secures an individual’s future.

“We would like our customers to understand that savings is the future; with it, you earn interest on your funds deposited. It is probably one of the safest ways you can make an investment without any risk involved. It allows you easy access to your deposited money whenever you require it.”

Customers of the bank that were drawn as winners in the second mini draw also presented with their prizes at the draw and they expressed delight at winning prizes in the promotion, adding that it was a pleasant surprise for them.

Below is the full speech of Gbenga Odeyemi, Managing Director, FBNBank Ghana Limited at the 3rd Mini Draw of the Save & Win Promo

Good morning to you our cherished customers and members of the media. On behalf of the Board and Management of FBNBank Ghana Limited, I would like to appreciate you for being here to witness the 3rd mini draw of our 2018 Save & Win Promo.

We are also elated that the National Lottery Authority is here to supervise the third mini draw of the promotion.

Today, we are gathered here to select 10 customers of the bank that have met the terms and conditions of the Save & Win promo as our 3rd mini draw winners and also present prizes to the winners of the 2nd Mini Draw of the promo which was held a couple of months ago.

The FBNBank Save and Win promo was introduced in 2017 to reward the bank’s valued customers for their loyalty. This year we have rewarded ten (10) customers of the bank and today, we would be rewarding ten (10) more in a short while.

These customers hold accounts with Santa Maria, Tema, Makola, Korle Bu, Swedru, Ring Road Central, Dansoman, Kaneshie, Suame, Kasoa, Takoradi and Techiman branches. In today’s draw, we would also pick ten (10) more customers that operate accounts at our branches and have fully met the terms and conditions of the promo. The winners we would pick today would be presented with their prizes at the grand draw of the promo next month.

For today’s draw, we would rely on you, our customers to help us select our ten (10) winners.

The first three customers whose accounts would be picked will each walk away with one smart phone while those in the fourth to tenth positions would receive mobile network airtime each as prizes.

At the end of the promo, on 31st of October, there would be a grand draw to reward another set of ten (10) customers. Winners of the Grand Draw would receive LED TVs, refrigerators, washing machines, gas cookers, laptops, tablets and smart phones.

Promo Mechanics

Let me now mention to you the mechanics of the promo

• To enter for the FBNBank Save and Win Promo, customers need to make a deposit of GH?200 (and/or multiples of it) into an existing or new individual savings/current account. Each GH?200 deposit earns the customer 1 point.

• All customers who at the start of the promo have a minimum balance of GH?1,000 in their accounts will get one point for every GH?1,000 as “advance points” up to a maximum of 10 points.

• Advance points will be earned only on incremental basis for as long as the customer’s deposit remains in the account during the period of the promotion.

• To participate in the monthly draws or the grand draw, our customers need to maintain a minimum of GH?1,000 in their current/savings account.

All customers who meet our terms and conditions for the FBNBank Save & Win Promo would qualify for the draw that would be supervised by the National Lottery Authority just as we are having today.

At FBNBank, we are committed to putting our esteemed customers and stakeholders at the heart of our business. We seek creative and innovative way to serve them better and aim at delivering to them reliable, secure and convenient payment options with cost saving benefits.

On this note, I would like to assure you that FBNBank Ghana Limited has resolved to meet the Bank of Ghana’s new minimum capital requirement for banks operating in the country before the stated deadline of 31st December, 2018. While at it, we are also working towards rolling out products and services to meet your needs and we would soon announce these to you.

Finally, I congratulate both the winners of the 2nd Mini Draw who would be receiving their prizes today and those who will emerge winners in today’s third mini draw.

To everyone who has taken time off their busy schedule to be a part of this event, I say thank you very much for coming.

God bless you.
