Minister Wins Unibank Promo In Kumasi
From Issah Alhassan, Kumasi
IT WAS an interesting scene at the premises of the Harper Road branch of UniBank in Kumasi yesterday, when the Volta Regional Minister, Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo, aka Lion, was named as one of the winners of the bank’s Dream & Drive Promotion.
The Volta Regional Minister came fourth in a raffle held publicly in front of the bank’s premise and would be offered a brand new Samsung Microwave as part of the bank’s 2nd Mini Draw promotion to reward 21 lucky customers and stakeholders.
Though the Minister was not physically present to witness the occasion, his name and promo account incidentally hit the screen as fourth winner of the lottery and qualifies to receive a brand new Samsung Microwave.
It is not clear whether the minister will take delivery of the prize, but as soon as his name and account number hit the screen and was announced by the host, the crowd burst into a sudden excitement.
The raffle, which is the second to be organized, forms part of a programme: dubbed ‘Dream & Drive’ launched by management of the bank to reward loyal and dedicated customers.
It is a prelude to the major draw to be held in November with a brand new Rover Evogue 2013 Model and a host of other mouthwatering prizes at stake.
According to the Executive Advisor, in charge of International and Institutional Relations of the bank, Mr. Clifford D. Mettle, the promotion was to express appreciation to their clients.
He said apart from the promotion, the bank had also began its annual customer awareness and attention week to deal with concerns of customers and to enable them offer quality services to their clients.
A representative of the Asantehene, Nana Adu Mensah Asabre, who is the
Amakomhene, commended financial institutions for their diverse contribution to both formal and informal businesses in the Ashanti Region.
He said through aggressive banking practices, many residents have seen the need to save their earnings in the bank rather than keeping them in their houses and this he said, had gone a long way to improve businesses and socio-economic activities.
He, however, expressed worry about the situation whereby most of the commercial banks are normally concentrated in the city to the neglect of district capitals and other major communities outside Kumasi and, therefore, appealed to management of UniBank to spread their branches outside the metropolis.
