As bank doles out N19m to customers
Fidelity Bank Plc, Regional Head North-West 1, Manir Ringim has revealed that bank’s motive for conducting the “Get alert in millions” savings promo is to key into the financial inclusion strategy of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
He made this known during the raffle draw of the promo held in Abuja recently where the bank doled out a total of N19m as cash prizes to 13 winners across the country in the promo.
He expressed optimism that through the initiative, the bank would be able to reduce the percentage of financially excluded Nigerians.

“What we have actually done here so far as a bank is to buy into the national financial inclusion strategy of the nation. Like you are all aware, today in Nigeria over 50 million Nigerians are financially ex cluded and that represents over 45 per cent of the population we have in the country. What that does is that it brings major impediments to the nation” he said.
The winners were selected through a computerised and transparent simple random system used across the bank’s branches in the six geo-political zones.
Members of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission and other lottery regulatory bodies in Nigeria were in attendance to witness the draw.
Speaking further, Ringim said “What we are actually doing today is the ‘Get alert in million season 4’ and it is a promo being conducted in the bank over the last 12 years. This is the second draw we are conducting since the promo commenced in October 2019. The expectation here is that we are going to draw out a total of N19m today in the following categories, the N3m category, N2m category, N1m category to 13 lucky customers of the bank. Outside that we are also going to give out about 18 consolation prizes to other winners ranging from refrigerators to TV sets and generators” he added.
