By Modupe Gbadeyanka
No fewer than seven winners emerged in the final draw of the Paypoint Double Up promo organised by Quickteller, one of the leading consumer digital payments platforms in Africa.
The winners were picked at an event held on Thursday, April 14, 2022, in Lagos in the presence of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), the Lagos State Lottery Board (LSLB), and the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC).
They were chosen from the Southwestern region of Nigeria and sorted from categories such as Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
The last round saw four agents emerge winners in the Silver category; two in the Gold category; and one in the Platinum category.
Winners in the Silver category included Olaiya Omoniyi Sunday, Benedict Agomoh of God’s Power Ventures, Akinwande Bashir, and Augustina Odudu of Tina Ventures.
The Gold winners were Asemota Mercy Itoha and Hellen Abimbola Ijimakinwa, while the Platinum winner was Eze Anya Augustine of Austine Technology, who took home the grand prize of a generator set.
The promo commenced on February 1, 2022, and ended on March 31, 2022. It was Quickteller’s way of giving back to esteemed agents for their work in driving the growth of financial inclusion across Nigeria.
Speaking on the success of the campaign, the Divisional Chief Executive Officer of Interswitch Financial Inclusion services, Titilola Shogaolu, commended the efforts of the agents, highlighting their importance to the overarching goal of Quickteller, which is bringing financial services closer to Nigerians and spurring prosperity across the country.
“It is always a delight to know the number of lives we can impact through our Double Up promo. We are excited to be in business with these winners and we hope to expand our reach to ensure that more people are brought on board so as to widen our pool of partners who will benefit from such programmes.
“Our goal remains deploying technological solutions to improve Nigeria’s, and by extension Africa’s, narrative on the subject of financial inclusion. While we continue to play our part, we hope to sell the vision to more potential agents who can also create prosperity for themselves,” Shogaolu said.
