The ancient city of Sokoto will play host to Skye Bank’s “Reach for the Skye” Millionaire Reward Scheme on February 18, 2016 at the popular Central Shehu Shagari main market. Old and new Customers of the bank will enjoy another great experience as winners will return home with cash prizes and instant gifts.
The “Reach for the Skye’’ millionaire reward scheme which kicked off last year has recorded over 20 millionaires who have emerged as star winners of N1m each during the electronic raffle draw as well as consolatory cash prices of N250,000 and N100,000 given to about 100 winners.
During the previous promo draw held in the popular Aria-Aria market in Aba, Abia state, Abdulwahab Aliu, an executive driver who emerged a winner in the one million naira category expressed his utmost gratitude to Skye Bank,
“I was shocked when I received a call from the bank that I had won a million naira from the promo. This is the first time in my entire life that I will be involved in this kind of lucky-driven reward. I must commend Skye Bank for this prize money, thanks to them, now I believe that there is still hope for the less privileged in Nigeria… The Poor can be rich!”
According to the Head, Retail Banking, Skye bank Plc., Nkolika Okoli, the reward scheme since its inception has not only produced several millionaires but has also impacted on customers’ savings culture.
“We are excited that the reward scheme has helped to increase customer’s knowledge on finance and have also revved up savings culture which is the essence of the whole campaign.”
Okoli added that the Millionaire Reward Scheme would also afford traders and those present at the Shehu Shagari Central Market Sokoto during the draw an opportunity to open accounts with the bank or upgrade from the regular Savings account to the Skye Save Plus account to win exciting instant prizes like generators, refrigerators, household appliances and other prizes.
The ‘Reach for the Skye’ millionaire promo draw is a national event which has taken place in seven states in Nigeria and is aimed at rewarding existing and new customers who operate the Skye Save Plus or the Skye Ease account with a minimum balance of two thousand naira in their account. However, customers with higher multiples of two thousand naira in their account stand more chances of winning.
The Reach for the Skye millionaire reward scheme was launched by Skye bank eight months ago with the objective of instituting a savings culture amongst Nigerians using a cash reward incentive.
