More winners have emerged in FirstBank XploreFirst Promo. Thirty winners drawn from six geopolitical zones and Lagos were announced at the bank’s annexe head office, Elephant House, Lagos on Friday.

The winners emerged through an electronic draw handled by Tequila on behalf of the bank and supervised by KPMG, National Lottery Regulatory Commission, and Lagos State Lottery Board.

Five winners each from Lagos, South West, South-South, South East, North East West and North Central from the December draw joined the existing winners from two draws done in October and November last year.

Speaking at the event, Adetokunbo Eliot, product manager, XploreFirst, said XploreFirst is a FirstBank savings account variant designed specifically for students between the age range of 18 – 29 years. A minimum amount of N1, 000 is required to open the account and account holders are to maintain a minimum balance of N200 to run the account.

Customers would successfully maintain the set balance over the six months period are eligible to win the jackpot of N150,000, the grand finale prize. Grand finale will also be selected from the Bank’s six geopolitical zones,” she explained.

With winners from the monthly draw selected from the bank’s six geopolitical zones, they are entitled to N5, 000 each which they are encouraged to use for data purchase for their mobile phones.

“This account is targeted at ages 18-29 who are expected to still be in school who need data to browse the internet to connect with friends or to get information online to aid their studies. We are doing this to encourage saving culture within this age group. Winners who emerged today will be contacted via telephone,” added Elliot.

Similarly, the representative of the Lagos State Lottery Board said the process was fair and the promo was duly registered with the board.
