Jonathan’s wife wins okada in bank promo

The wife of the President, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, was on Thursday in Lagos announced as one of the winners of the Union Bank Plc savings bonanza.

She was declared as winner of a motorcycle (okada) in the grand finale of the bank’s savings bonanza, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

Jonathan’s wife, with ticket number 387492, operates a savings account with the Yenagoa branch of the bank.

The Managing Director of SO and U Advertising, Mr. Udeme Ufot, after confirming the account, announced the President’s wife as the winner of the bonanza.

The Managing Director of Union Bank, Mrs. Funke Osibodu, said on the occasion that the bank would not relent in its effort to support investment in the real sector.

She said the development would facilitate the nation’s rapid economic growth.

“With the conclusion of the draw today, we would have given out the prizes earmarked at the beginning of the savings promo, thereby fulfilling our promise to the public,” Osibodu said..

She said it was important for the bank, because “it is a mark that will remain reliable as a financial institution.”

The bank chief said the promo was aimed at strengthening retail and consumer behaviour to mobilise deposit from the savers, especially the small scale ones.

NAN reports that the bank gave out 18 cars, 60 motorcycles, N8.6m cash and three Toyota Land Cruiser jeeps to winners.

Abeg, give out that okada to someone that need it to make a humble living rather than giving to a customer that will allow the okada to get rotten in her store. Imagine, giving an okada to a person that has fleet of cars. "Abeg, dis na cheap advert for Union Bank"

Does she needs it I don't think so it's rather a cheap publicity for the Union Bank. People needs employment and not buying cars or motorcycles or jeep as prizes for depositing your hard money into a viable banks.
In the Western World such is never the norm for a bank to be doling out such a big prizes to their depositors and neither would their investors take it lightly for flagrant business expenses at their peril. They do need a publicity to rectify their damage image in making it viable and in competition with other banks.
