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.”

“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.
