Since becoming a National Bank, we had been on a success streak with the launch of Africa’s first fully digital bank, ALAT, our female-focused proposition, SARA by Wema, our USSD solution *945# and a host of others. What stood out for us is how receptive our customers have been through the years, supporting us, welcoming our solutions, and embracing each innovation with open arms. The success reflected in our numbers could not have been possible without the loyalty that we have enjoyed from our customers, so we set our sights on a greater vision—to go beyond the ‘usual’ in our promise of providing customers with a seamless and rewarding banking experience. This vision was brought to life when we launched the 5 for 5 Promo in 2019 and I take this moment to appreciate every person who has contributed to the success of the Wema Bank 5 for 5 Promo and joined us in bringing this vision to reality”.

We’ve had winners who were NYSC Corps Members, Business Owners, Corporate Employees, Parents, Students, and several other demographics from all over Nigeria and honestly, being here today at the Grand Finale leaves a bittersweet feeling. While the Grand Finale attests to the impactful journey that we have traversed through the past 10 months, it also marks the end of the Season.
