Accra, Oct 28, GNA – Fidelity Bank has held the third draw of its 10x richer Promo in Takoradi in the Western Region, bringing the total number of winners so far to 15 customers.
The Promo lucky customers are Esther Okutu, of Mamprobi post branch, Shadrach Amo-Mensah of Kantamanto branch, Dolly Atefoe of Spintex Road branch, Benneth Arthur of Tarkwa branch and Joshua Tandah of Market Circle branch.
Each of the lucky winners would have their coupon balance multiplied by 10 making them GH¢5, 000.00 rich.
Other five customers of the bank who were at the draw also won instant cash prizes of GH¢200.00 each.
The first and second draws were held in Accra and Kumasi respectively and the grand draw would see three lucky customers receiving 150,000.
The Managing Director of Fidelity Bank, Mr Jim Baiden was optimistic that the money won would make an impact in the lives of the lucky customers.
« Today five lucky customers have become 10 times richer and will have the opportunity to expand their businesses, pay school fees and invest in a building project, At Fidelity Bank we do not decide what you do with your money, we give you the purchasing power to pursue your most pressing needs. »
Mr Baiden used the occasion to assure customers of the bank’s strength in the face of the Bank of Ghana increasing the minimum capital requirement.
« I will like to assure you that your bank is in a very good financial standing and we are very well on track to meet this requirement « .
He said the bank was currently one of two top Seven banks whose capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) exceeded 30 percent.
Mr Baiden said the bank was also one of two well capitalised banks in Ghana in terms of CAR and that the bank also emerged as the most resilient bank in Ghana in a recent stress test conducted by the central bank.
« Fidelity Bank is here for good and we will keep solidifying our footprints in the banking space ».
He said the bank was the only bank in the country licenced to do Agency banking.
The Managing Director urged customers to deposit more to increase their chances of winning big in the monthly draws, particularly, the grand draw in which GH¢150.000.00 would be won by three customers.
Fidelity bank launched the Fidelity 10x Richer Promo in June this year to reward loyal customers as well as inculcate in Ghanaians a saving culture.
The President of the Western Region House of Chiefs Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi II who was the guest of honour commended Fidelity bank for instituting the Promo which he noted would encourage people to save their money with the bank.
He said it was unfortunate that many Ghanaians did not save their money with the bank and urged Ghanaians to develop the culture of saving.
Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi admonished customers of the bank to make judicious use of loans they collect from the bank and endeavour to pay back the loans promptly to enable others to also benefit.
