Customers and winners in the just-concluded Season 7 of the First City Monument Bank (FCMB) bumper reward scheme, “FCMB Millionaire Promo”, have described the Bank as a friend of the masses.
They also commended the leading lender for constantly rising to the occasion to meet their personal and business needs through various empowerment activities.
Showering encomiums on the Bank, a trader based in Abia State, Chukwudi Akwaeze, said, “winning N1,000,000 in the FCMB Millionaire promo is still like a dream. Now I have enough money to grow my business without having to dip into my savings. I am very grateful to FCMB for capping this year with such an amazing gift.”
Another entrepreneur, Mrs. Victoria Ogunleye, expressed gratitude to First City Monument Bank for changing her story and status. The baker and beads maker resident in Rivers State became a millionaire last month during the grand finale draw of the FCMB Millionaire promo held October 28.
She said, “at the beginning of the year, I received a text message informing me about the promo. I did everything I could to maintain the necessary balance in my account to qualify for the draws. I am thrilled that my commitment finally paid off. I am ending 2021 as a millionaire.”
On his part, Master Dumtochukwu Asapuo, who is seeking admission to Lagos State University (LASU), said, “I started banking with FCMB in September. When I received news of the promo and draws, I ignored it until I got a call on October 28 that I had just won N1 million. I was completely blown away. Now I have enough funds to pay for my tuition, secure accommodation and focus on my studies when my admission is successful. With FCMB, the future is looking very bright for me.”
Commenting on the promo, the Bank’s Divisional Head for Personal Banking, Mr. Shamsideen Fashola, said, “we are happy to produce another set of millionaires and prize winners. Every year, since 2012, the FCMB Millionaire Promo has touched lives, built, and sustained the commitment to hard work and savings culture for a large number of micro and small business owners.”
According to Fashola, “our customers are the reason why FCMB is in business, and the Millionaire Promo is one of the ways we have empowered them over the years. Beyond promoting savings culture, our bumper rewards have also inspired past winners to set up businesses that are flourishing. We are proud of our customers and what we have achieved with this much anticipated annual promo”.
FCMB has fulfilled the promise to reward customers who participated and qualified for the Millionaire Promo through six national draws. Ten millionaires emerged from the draws, while 2,300 lucky customers won cash prizes ranging from N10,000 to N100,000 at the end of this year’s promo, which ran from April to October 2021. The draws took place across various locations in Nigeria, and winners emerged from every region, spread across cities, towns, and neighborhoods all over the country.
