The giant prize winner of the 2013/2014 Ecobank Deposit Mobilization Campaign (EDMC) raffle draw has taken delivery of her award in Monrovia. Mrs. Cecelia Harries Jolo arrived in Monrovia from Zwedru; Grand Gedeh County over the weekend to take delivery of her four-door Chevrolet valued US$15,000. The Airstrip supervisor and business woman, who sells cement and petroleum products in Zwedru city, the provincial capital of Grand Gedeh County, told our reporter that she was ecstatic to have been selected lucky winner of the Ecobank Deposit Mobilization Campaign draw.
“I am very happy; she said “that I was selected winner of the giant prize of the EDMC raffle draw.” “I am glad to the extent that I don’t even know how to express my joy,” she said.
Accompanied to Monrovia by her family members including her brother and sisters, Mrs. Jolo observed that Ecobank has added a new flavor to the banking industry in Liberia by awarding customers for saving money in their personal accounts.
The EDMC required customers to regularly deposit US$100 in their savings accounts in order to qualify them for the draw. But Mrs. Jolo said she was not aware of the EDMC promo.
“I didn’t know about this promo,” Madam Jolo said as she beamed with smiles. On Thursday, January 23, Mrs. Jolo was phoned via mobile phone after her account number was luckily chosen by a customer through a raffle draw at the Ecobank Sinkor Branch.
Her account number was picked from among over 31,000 other account numbers for other customers who also qualified for the grand prize draw.
The raffle draw was supervised by the Liberia National Lotteries, the legal body responsible for all raffle draws in Liberia.
Ecobank Managing Director Mr. Kola Adeleke, Monday, handed the keys over to Mrs. Jolo who was smartly dressed in orange skirt, a pair of black heel shoes, a black and white blouse and a pair of black jacket.
“I am going to take this car to Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County to ride it around the city center. This car will also take me to job,” she stated.
The EDMC grand prize winner, who is also a student of the Grand Gedeh Community College, said she will drive her car to school so that other students can be encouraged to deposit and save their monies with Ecobank Liberia. She told the public about the importance of saving their money with the Bank.
“I felt so glad when the Ecobank Managing Director handed the keys over to me and asked me to sit in the car,” Jolo noted. Mrs. Jolo is a mother of four: two girls and two boys. She thanked Ecobank Management for the promotion and for helping to change her life.
