Ecobank Nigeria says it is committed to boosting the Central Bank of Nigeria’s financial inclusion programme.

As a result, the bank said it had allotted over N10m cash prizes for prospective winners in its new deposit promo titled “Giant prize give away”

According to a statement by the bank, the promo will run from September to February next year and it is meant for current and savings account holders.

The statement quoted the Deputy Managing Director, Ecobank Nigeria, Mr. Tony Okpanachi, as saying that the lender had decided to run the second edition of the promo because of the success it recorded in the previous edition.

He noted that feedback from customers was positive, reiterating that the promo was also the bank’s contribution to the financial inclusion strategy of the CBN.

He said, “This is one of the several ways to reward our loyal customers even as we offer them the best of banking services. It is also to encourage savings culture in the country. Ecobank remains the best platform to provide economic empowerment to our people across Africa.”

Okpanachi explained that to ensure many customers benefitted from the various prizes, the promo had been segmented into two categories.

Meanwhile, Ecobank International Incorporated says it has donated $50,000 to the Government of Sierra Leone to assist it in combating the deadly Ebola virus which has ravaged Sierra Leone and several other West African countries.

A statement by the lender said Ecobank Sierra Leone’s Managing Director, Mr. Clement Dodoo, made the donation to President Ernest Koroma in his office at State House in Freetown on Tuesday.

Dodoo, the statement noted, did the donation on behalf of Ecobank Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Albert Essien.

It quoted Dodoo as lauding measures put in place by the Sierra Leone government and others in the Manu River Union in an effort to combat the virus.

“In the spirit of Pan-Africanism, we at Ecobank believe that the current Ebola menace is a fight for all of us in the country and on the wider African continent,” he said.

“We believe your government needs all the resources it requires to fight this menace and we cannot sit and allow the government to go it alone,” he added

The Ecobank Sierra Leone managing director conveyed the condolences of the entire Ecobank Group to the government and people of Sierra Leone for the loss of life so far.

“What they stood for,” Dodoo said, “gives us all the zeal to continue the fight against Ebola and kick it out of Sierra Leone.”

The managing director also took the opportunity to appeal to the Sierra Leonean police, who he said must ensure that passengers were not overloaded in public and private transport.

He stressed that the true means to success in fighting the virus was by diligently adhering to the preventive measures prescribed by the experts.

He further called on other corporate bodies in the country to join in the struggle to make Sierra Leone safe and free from Ebola. H

He particularly enjoined sister banking institutions to supplement their initial donation as an association by still donating more to the cause.

The statement quoted Koroma as extending the heartfelt appreciation of the government for the gesture.

Ecobank said it was pursuing similar corporate social responsibility initiatives in Guinea and Liberia, which have also been seriously affected by the Ebola epidemic.
