Seventeen-month old Adaeze Esther Odidika has emerged the youngest customer to win N1m in the on-going Save and Smile Promotion organized by Fidelity Bank Plc.
Little Adaeze is one of the 15 new millionaires that emerged in the recent draw which also produced Lateef Bamidele Oba, Caminus Amuka, Esemena Michael Chikaogu and Fadoju Kolawole Lawrence as winners of N1m each from the Lagos region of the promo.
The youngest millionaire of the promo became eligible for the promo draws when her pharmacist father, Mr. Patrick Odidika decided to open a Sweeta Account for her in September last year and save money for her education.
â€œMy daughter is a favoured childâ€, explained Mr. Odidika when he brought his daughter to the head office of Fidelity Bank Plc in Lagos where prizes were presented to winners on Tuesday. â€œIt is the wish of every parent that their child should bring something special into the world. Adaeze has given us a pleasant surpriseâ€. Adaeze is the first child of the Odidikas.
Another new millionaire, Caminus Amuka, a trader who deals on car accessories is no less excited about the amazement of his win at this season of the year. â€œI have never seen so much money in my life before nowâ€, he enthused. â€œThis is my N1m ever. Although my investments over time may be worth N1m, I have never owned N1m in block beforeâ€
On what he intends to do with the money, Mr. Amuka said he would spend part of it on completing a house he had long abandoned and another part in strengthening his car accessories business.
Little Adaeze and Mr. Amuka were not the only excited winners at the prize presentation ceremony. Oyewusi Oyewunmi, Ernest Chukwuluolum Okafor and Uchechi Joy Makwuzi were all lucky winners of brand motorcycles.
