Speaking, Dotun Ifebogun, Divisional Head, Retail Banking commended the efforts put in by customers of the Bank’s Royal Kiddies Account.
According to him “The Royal Kiddies annual award demonstrates the banks unwavering support for its customers. This is especially so at a time most families face the financial hardship posed by the global outbreak of COVID-19. We also know it’s back to school season. We believe this will contribute to the educational needs of the winners as they go back to school.”
He expressed happiness over the success of the rewards as a result of parents’ annual expectation. “Because of the cash prize, parents now look forward to the annual award with hope of being among lucky winners.”
