Mr John Pouba, a Seaman with an oil servicing company, has emerged winner of the N10 million grand prize in the Fidelity Bank’s Get Alert In Million (GAIM) Promo Season 3.

Pouba, who was announced the winner at the grand prize presentation ceremony in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, collected his cash prize at the occasion.

Alongside Pouba were four other winners of millions of Naira, namely; Mr Kingsley Ibenegbu, N3 million; Mr Nasiru Dokpesi, N2 million; Mr Oliver Okoye, N2 million and Nwodo Edeh, N1 million.

Ibenegbu, who is a technologist at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, described his prize as a miracle of God.

He said that he was billed for an eye surgery but due to lack of fund, he could not go.

He said that he was involved in a road traffic accident in November and his left lense (black eye) fell off the eye to the ground.

“I picked it up and took it to a hospital, the doctors immediately referred me to UNTH (University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital) which said I have retina detachment but unfortunately, the hospital did not have the equipment to help my case.”

Ibenegbu said that he got to a private hospital in Enugu and was told that the surgery would cost him N1.1 million which he did not have.

He said that further enquires got him to a private hospital in Ibadan where he was charged 350,000 but because he did not have such an amount, he pleaded to pay by instalments.

He said that the doctors refused but advised him to go and scout for money fast, adding that by that time, the remaining right eye had started paining him.

“I went round my relations and friends but I couldn’t get any money, so one of my friends advised me to pray to God for a destiny help.

“I went home that night and prayed earnestly to God, asking for the forgiveness of my sins and to bless me with a miracle; the following day, I got a call that I have won N3 million,” he said.

Ibenegbu, however, commended Fidelity Bank for the gesture and described it as a destiny help, adding that he would be going for the surgery in June.

The grand prize winner, Pouba, said he would invest the money in Fidelity but before that, he would consult with his account officer for advice.

Pouba and other winners thanked the bank for the gesture and urged it to continue making its customers millionaires.

In her opening address, Mrs Aku Odinkemere, Executive Director, South, said the essence of the promo was to encourage customers and their families to imbibe the saving culture.

Odinkemere, who represented the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Mr Nnamdi Okonkwo, said that the importance of saving for a rainy day could not be over-emphasised.

She said that in 2017, a man won a house in Port Harcourt through the promo, adding that N110 million and 108 consolation prizes have been given out in the promo.

Past prize winners of the season’s promo, who were present at the occasion, recounted their joys when they received the calls announcing them winners and commended the bank for bettering their lives.

Refrigerator and power generating set were given out as consolation prizes to Nkem Isichei and Ejirooghene Ekeuwei, respectively.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has indicated interest in working with the Indonesian national oil company, Pertamina, to improve on the volume of crude oil export.
Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Mallam Mele Kyari, disclosed this today while receiving the Indonesian Ambassador to Nigeria, His Excellency, Dr. Usra Hendra Harahap, at the NNPC Towers, Abuja.

A press release by the corporation’s Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, stated that partnership with Pertamina could open up more opportunities for the nation’s crude oil and gas in the face of unpredictable global market.

Mele Kyari said that NNPC was ready to renew the trade contract with the Republic of Indonesia which expired last year and directed the relevant arms of the corporation to work out modalities to ensure a better deal for the benefit of both countries.

Earlier in his presentation, the Indonesian Ambassador, His Excellency, Dr. Usra Hendra Harahap, noted that Indonesia has a long history of mutual relationship with Nigeria and was ready to improve on its $2.5 billion trade balance with Nigeria.

“Last year alone, Indonesia imported from Nigeria crude oil worth about $2.5 billion; but that contract ended in December, 2018”, adding that crude oil from Nigeria was considered to be of very high quality and environmentally friendly.

The Ambassador expressed confidence in the capacity of the NNPC new GMD to deliver on his mandate as the leader of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria.

“The new NNPC boss is very experienced. I read his curriculum vitae and I found it very wonderful. Nobody can cheat him because he grew through the ranks to the top. I think NNPC will be very strong by his leadership qualities”, the diplomat concluded.

Published

on

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation on Sunday announced a trading surplus of N6.33bn for the month of May, a figure which is 13 per cent higher than the N5.6bn surplus posted in the preceding month of April.

Details of the corporation’s performance contained in the May edition of its Monthly Financial and Operations Report attributed the marginal rise to the increase in gas and power output in contrast to the figure for the preceding month.

The report, which was made public by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, Ndu Ughamadu, also attributed the result to the surplus recorded by the corporation’s downstream entities.

The report further indicated that within the period, the corporation recorded a total of $580.32m in export sale of crude oil and gas, which was 23.39 per cent higher than the previous month’s figure.

Out of this number, crude oil export sales contributed $458.59m, which translated to 79.02 per cent of the entire dollar transactions, compared with the $342.11m that was contributed in the previous month.

The report showed that between May 2018 and May 2019, crude oil and gas worth $5.97bn was exported.

In the downstream, to ensure uninterrupted supply and effective distribution of petrol across the country, a total of 2.06b billion litres of petrol translating to 66.49 million litres per day were supplied in the month of May 2019.

NNPC stated that beyond supply, it had continued to diligently monitor the daily stock of petrol to achieve smooth distribution of petroleum products and zero fuel queue across the country.

Within the period, a total of 60 pipeline points were vandalised, representing a remarkable 52 per cent decrease from the 125 points vandalised in April 2019.

The Atlas Cove-Mosimi and Ibadan-Ilorin pipelines accounted for 38 per cent and 23 per cent, respectively and other locations accounted for the remaining 39 per cent of the total breaks.

The report noted that the feat was due to efforts by NNPC in collaboration with the local communities and other stakeholders to continuously strive to reduce and eventually eliminate pipeline vandalism.
