The transparency and efficiency embedded in the Diamond Bankâ€™s Savingsxtra draw process has been commended by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission.
Speaking at the December Surprise Draw of the Savingsxtra reward campaign held in Lagos on December 30, 2009, the Director General of the commission, Mr. Peter Ighoh, who was represented by the Deputy Director (Regulation/Monitoring), Prince Emmanuel Jeminiwa, stated that the commission was impressed by the level of transparency and efficiency with which winners emerge in the draw.
â€œHaving witnessed todayâ€™s draw, we can categorically say that the draw process was transparent, rigorous and efficient. We have seen the sincerity of purpose in what the Bank is doing and promise to customers, fulfilledâ€, he said.
He further maintained that part of the commissionâ€™s responsibility is to ensure that draws follow the guidelines as stipulated by the law adding that having witnessed the Bankâ€™s draw process, he can say that it followed the rules.
â€œWe will continue to support those who do the right things and as for Diamond Bank, we will advise your customers to continue to participate in the draws as there are equal opportunities for each of them. It is not easy to put together over 7million tickets, analyze them and electronically generate winners randomlyâ€, he stated.
Also speaking during the draw was John Anyanwu, an auditor representing KPMG, who was there to oversee all the proceedings at the draw, stated that since the inception of the draw in 2008, Diamond Bank had remained consistent with the outlined rules and guidelines for the draw. â€œThere is absolute transparency in the draws and I can assure everybody that all the results from the draws so far have remained credible and transparent.
I can equally testify that the draw held here today is in line with all the laid down procedures guiding this campaign.Â All account holders of the Bank who are eligible to participate in this draw participated, and no customer was given undue advantage to emerge as a winner.Â All winners emerged from a free and fair draw process today,â€ he stated.
