Guaranty Trust Bank The Gambia Limited has
presented the first set of prizes to winners of its Save and Win promo.
The prizes, which include two categories of customers, were won by 13 customers.
Category one includes customers who maintain a closing balance of between D10,000 and D50,000 in their accounts for 3 months, and are entitled to prizes such as 2 bags of rice, 1 gallon of vegetable oil (20 litres) and a bag of onions.
Category two includes customers who maintain a closing balance of above D50,000 in their accounts for 3 months, and are entitled to prizes such as Fridge freezer, 32” LED TV, and Smart Phone.
The first set of prizes were presented on Friday 15 July to the lucky winners who included Aderonke Adepeju Oduto, Ansel Dacosta, Sheriff Jamanka, Ousman Manjang, Alphones Secka, Prince Daniel Antika, Alhagie Momodou (for category one), whilst category two included Ebrima Badjie (Smart Phone), and Ida Combeh Manneh (32” TV).
According to GTBank’s head of corporate affairs, Dodou Bojang, the draw for the winners was done among over 6000 qualified customers. “Therefore you can count yourselves lucky,” he told the winners, who received their prizes at GTBank head office on Kairaba Avenue.
In his remarks, GTBank MD/CEO Bolaji Ayodele said the idea of introducing the GTBank Save and Win deposit mobilization campaign was triggered by the fact that GTBank, being a leading financial intermediary in the industry, is out to encourage the culture of saving, especially among the unbanked population of the country.
The campaign, he added was also initiated to give back to their customers, who are stakeholders of the bank.
The GTBank Save and Win deposit mobilization campaign has a lot of goods and value for GTBank customers and the unbanked in the country, he said, adding that the prizes given to the winners are simply a fulfilment of the Bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility pledge as a corporate citizen of The Gambia.
He said another draw will be done among qualified customers in the next three months (October) to get winners who will receive valuable prizes.
“And the finale draw will be done at the end of the year to get winners for the grand prizes,” MD Bolaji said.
Prizes for the grand finale include: 1st prize a Hyundai Accent; 2nd prize, Return ticket to Dubai with US$2,000 travel money, and 3rd Prize a Sitting Room Sofa set.
To qualify for the grand finale, the GTBank MD added, customers of the bank must have a minimum closing balance of D500,000 or more for the duration of the promo.
