The Bank in a statement said 60 other lucky winners also emerged from across the six geo-political zones, winning N100,000 each during the grand finale draw last Thursday.
The draw which held at the Bank’s headquarters, in Victoria Island, Lagos was streamed across various media channels attracting a large online audience. The audience profile was made up of customers from within and outside Nigeria and members of the public who witnessed the emergence of the six millionaires and other consolation prize winners through an open and transparent electronic ballot.
Speaking at the unveiling of the winners, Polaris Bank’s Managing Director/CEO, Mr. Innocent Ike, said he was excited at the outcome of the draws and particularly for the customers, adding that: “This will create the desired change in the savings culture of Nigerians as well as transform the investment climate for the economy.”
The trio of Susie Onwuka; Gloria Ireka and Owen Dadzie representing the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC); National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) and the Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON) respectively, adjudged the draw process as transparent and credible. They commended Polaris Bank for taking its time to do things properly.
The ‘Save & Win’ promo was launched in November 2020 with three draws slated to select winners in February, March, and April respectively.
A total of N26 million cash have been won by 188 Polaris Bank customers nationwide. Eight millionaires emerged from the six geo-political zones of the country and 180 other customers went home with a consolation prize of N100,000 each.
