“Some people have asked us, why are you encouraging people to save when there is recession and all that? The simple answer is that savings has never been a respecter of what you earn. It is a habit you need to imbibe, whether you are rich or poor.
“So, what it means is that if you learn to save when you don’t have so much money, when a lot of money comes, you will still continue with that habit. So, what Access Bank is doing is to encourage our customers and Nigerians to imbibe a savings culture. A savings culture that is not limited with what you have, but based on the habit you have imbibed over time,” Wemi-Jones added.
Also, she said the scheme was designed to reward the collective savings habit of families with grand prizes and competitive interest rates while they enjoy the confidentiality of their banking transactions as individuals
“The nationwide savings promo, first of its kind in the industry with over 100,000 gifts to be given away, targets the family units with weekly, monthly and the mega random selections,” she added.
