Ikechukwu said, “After the Federal Government lifted the lockdown across the country, we asked ourselves what we could do to support our customers and enable them live the good life. That was how the Verve Good Life Promo was borne.”
He added that Verve has continued to stay true to their commitment to reward Verve cardholders for their loyalty. “We are also proud to say that every winner that emerged from the Verve Good Life promo has been credited with their rewards, from the weekly N10,000 cash prize and the N5,000 airtime reward to the monthly N50,000 cash prize and today we are rewarding the two grand prize winners.”
Ikechukwu revealed that the promo drew in a wide range of winners, including artisans, mechanics, students and entrepreneurs and corporate professionals.
Adedamola Giwa, Country Manager, Verve, who presented the N1 million cash prize to one of the winners, said he was delighted that Verve stayed true to its words by rewarding loyal cardholders. He said one of the core values of Verve is to consistently reward its loyal and esteemed customers.
Mrs Olayiwola, who was overwhelmed with joy at winning N1 million, said she never expected to win the grand prize. According to her, it seemed like a dream when Verve called to inform her that she had won.
Commenting further, Olayiwola said, she makes use of her Verve card often and this reward of 1 million naira could not have come at a better time than this. She urged other cardholders to constantly use their Verve cards to enjoy premium and efficient payment solutions.
