Addressing the audience, Mr. Jim Baiden, Deputy Managing Director of Fidelity Bank touched on the relevance of savings and how it is a core objective of the Bank to help customers save for future plans. “At Fidelity Bank, we believe in the culture of savings to achieve one’s goal and also as a fall back plan for a rainy day. We continually encourage our customers in particular and the general public to cultivate the habit of saving consistently towards achieving their plans and securing the future of their loved ones”.
Explaining why Fidelity is rewarding customers with Gold prizes instead of other products, Mr. Baiden noted that “Fidelity Bank believes in giving the consumer the purchasing power to decide what they want to do with their prizes.
“With this Promotion, we are giving lucky customers the opportunity to win the precious mineral-Gold because with a Gold coin or Gold bar, one can keep for investment purposes or convert into cash for other purposes such as expand their businesses, build their dream houses, buy their dream cars, fund their children’s education, embark on a dream vacation among others”.
