United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc over the weekend treated 20 customers to an unforgettable holiday experience in Dubai. The beneficiaries, selected from the pool of the people who received their Western Union and MoneyGram transfer at UBA during the UBA Remittance Awoof Promo, departed for Dubai Friday evening from the international wing of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos on an all-expense paid three-day trip to the world’s holiday city. For many, it was their first time of traveling out of the country and they were excitedly looking forward to it.

One of them, Benita Ojeh from Asaba, who had never been to Lagos before the trip, could not hide her excitement. “This is more like a miracle to me. I never believed this would ever happen to me. I am immensely grateful to UBA and most importantly very proud that a bank could reward a customer with a dream trip like this,” she said.

“I am so excited,” she added. “I have no words to say how I feel now after this trip. All I can say is thank you UBA for making this happen to me. I will never forget my experience in Dubai. It is an experience I will share with my children and it is great to know that UBA made it happen.”

In Dubai, the 20 lucky customers were stayed the prestigious J5 Rimal Rotana Apartments, with each customer allocated his or her own room. During their stay they had opportunity to visit many great sites in Dubai, including the Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure in the world.

The trip is part of UBA’s efforts to reward loyalty, give back to the society and impact the lives of individuals that carry out business with the bank.

Welcoming the customers back to Nigeria on November 17, Directorate Head, Public Sector Group, Marketing, Mr. Oliver Alawuba, said UBA is more than happy to reward loyal customers because UBA believes that loyal customers deserve to be rewarded.

He assured that UBA will continue to “reward customers who remain loyal to the bank and do repeat business with us.”

News Express reports that in addition to the 20, 60 other customers were rewarded with beautiful gift items. The winners were selected based on money transfers through MoneyGram and Western Union at any UBA office natiowide within the period of January and August 2015.

UBA says plans are at an advanced stage to roll out another Awoof promotion in January of 2016.

“Customers who missed this trip should watch out. It could be their turn to have an unforgettable holiday experience for being loyal customers of UBA,” said Mr. Alawuba.
