Hamza emerges first millionaire in Skye Bank R-TAG scheme

Kaduna-based businessman in Kaduna State, Mukaila B. Hamza has emerged the first winner of one million naira in Skye Bank’s ‘Reach for the Skye Millionaire Reward’ scheme, tagged, ‘Retail Transformation and Growth’, R-TAG, from electronic draw  of over 400, 000 new retail banking customers, reports ITRealms.

Hamza, a former Mainstreet Bank account holder, while receiving a surprise congratulatory phone call made to the winner by Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Mr. Timothy Oguntayo, urged him to invest his reward wisely and continue his loyalty to the bank.

Speaking earlier at the launch of the project in Lagos, Mr. Oguntayo, assured that the new business transformation project would bring about customized and needs-satisfying financial solutions in a manner that will exceed the expectations of the customers.

“Our renewed drive and focus on retail banking is anchored on the premise of building a long lasting relationship with our customers based on trust as well as supporting the financial inclusion drive of the CBN so as to bring a lot more people into the financial system and the formal economy,” he said.

The Executive Director, South-South, South-East and Retail Banking, Mrs. Ibiye Ekong said that the ‘Reach for the Skye Millionaire Reward’ scheme was instituted by the bank to encourage savings culture amongst the mass market segment.

“Skye Bank is not just encouraging customers to save, but we are also rewarding customers for doing this. In the end, the scheme is a win-win for both our esteemed customers and Skye Bank as we seek to grow our customer base,” she said.

Each month, she said, during the monthly draws, three customers would emerge millionaires, while 10 others would be rewarded with 200, 000 naira each as consolation prizes for having at least a minimum opening balance of 2, 000 naira with the bank within that month.

The next draw event will hold in the first week of July, this year. The reward scheme is endorsed and validated by the State and Federal regulatory agencies saddled with the responsibility of regulating reward and lottery scheme.
