Sterling Bank Plc has flagged off a new promo tagged, 1dament, to reward new and existing customers. The promo which started in December 2017 will end in March 2018.
In this interview with Ezeanyim Henry Obinna, a legal practitioner and one of the lucky winners of an all-expense paid trip to an international holiday destination, he says he thought someone wanted to defraud him when he was informed that he had won in the on-going promo of the bank.
How did you hear about the promo?
I did not know that the bank was doing a promo. But early this year while I was in my village holidaying, an official of the bank called on phone to inform me that I had won an all -expense paid trip to an international holiday destination in the on-going promo.
I did not believe her until I asked my wife to go to the nearest Sterling Bank’s branch in Lagos to tell them that someone was trying to defraud me. It was when she got there that it was confirmed that I was one of the lucky winners in the promo, a development which my account officer also confirmed later.
What motivated you to open account with Sterling Bank?
I opened the account with Magnum Bank (which later became part of Sterling Bank during the consolidation in the banking industry) as a young lawyer because my boss had an account with it so that it will be easy for me to get my salary on time then.
Is this prize the greatest benefit you have received from Sterling Bank or any Nigerian bank?
Yes, this is the first greatest prize I have won in my life. I always hear about banks doing promos and people winning but this is the first time I am benefiting from it.
How has Sterling Bank’s products and services helped you to reach your goals?
I have been banking with the bank for a very long time right from when they were still Magnum Bank. If I were not satisfied with its products and services I would have closed my account with it. I have persevered with it through thick and thin to this moment because I like its services and products.
Will you recommend Sterling Bank to your family and friends?
When I started sharing my ‘testimony’ with my family members and friends, even without recommending Sterling Bank to them, they were already asking me which bank is it that gave me the prize, I can’t hide it from them so I have to tell them it is Sterling Bank.
