The Deputy Controller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Mr. Malgwi Henry Yasika has emerged the winner of the ‘Reach for Skye Millionaire’ reward scheme of Skye Bank Plc held in Sokoto.
Yasika who maintains an account with the Ebitu Ukiwe Branch in Minna, Niger State, joins two others who won the star prize of N1 million in addition to other customers who won N250,000 and N100,000 respectively.
At the North West’s regional draw which took place in Sokoto, a total of N5 million was won by customers as the bank rewards loyal customers across the nation.
Speaking about his win, the Immigration DCG said he was initially suspicious when the news was first broken to him but became excited afterwards, noting that the money has greatly changed his life.
He urged the bank to make the scheme a constant one as well as reach out to the grassroots to empower the youth.
Since the Reach for the Skye Millionaire reward scheme began last year, many customers of the bank have won cash prizes totaling over 45 million, with three millionaires being produced every month. The scheme is intended to encourage savings habit among Nigerians.
