So, today is one of those things that we are trying to do here and once you save with UBA you stand to benefit,” he added.According to Balogun, the Save and Win promotion is just the beginning of bigger opportunities for UBA’s customers. All you need to do is to save your money for the period, and you will stand a chance to benefit.”In response, Ms. Johnson said the reward was a surprise, adding: “I feel very good. This is unexpected.”Ms. Johnson then thanked the UBA management for the promotion and for helping to change her life.Madam Johnson has been a customer of UBA for the past two years and is running a small business. The ongoing promo, which commenced on September 1, 2019, is expected to run until January 30, 2020, where the final winner will walk away with a brand new kehkeh (tricycle).According to the Bank, every month, a lucky winner will be rewarded with one motorbike through a raffle draw and a kehkeh (tricycle) for the final draw, which totals to four motorbikes and one kehkeh (tricycle) for the entire period.The criteria to participate in the draw is for all existing and new customers to deposit or build their account balance to US$300 or L$50,000 from the beginning of the month without withdrawing until the end of the month to automatically qualify to win a motorbike through a raffle draw.And to win a kehkeh, one would need to deposit and maintain the same amount of US$300 or L$50,000 until January 2020. According to the bank, those interested in joining UBA can open a savings account in any UBA branch across the country, and start saving to stand a chance of winning.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The hiring, though, could be viewed as hypocritical, since Guerrero said one of the reasons he fired Bob Toledo five years ago was because of off-the-field transgressions. While at Colorado, Neuheisel’s was cited for numerous NCAA violations, many secondary in nature and dealing in recruiting, and the program was placed on probation. He also had issues with the NCAA at Washington, and was fired after his participation in an NCAA basketball betting pool. He later won a $4.5 million settlement after filing a law suit against Washington and the NCAA. UCLA ended a nearly fourth week of coaching search by hiring former quarterback Rick Neuheisel as its head coach today, replacing the fired Karl Dorrell. Neuiheisel, the offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens, will be introduced at a Monday press conference. Also, sources said defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker, one of the finalists for the job, is leaning toward staying with the program, which could be a coup considering he was the mastermind behind a strong recruiting class. He has a two-year offer from Washington to be the defensive coordinator. Athletic director Dan Guerrero said he wanted a head coach with experience, and he gets one in Neuheisel, who spent eight years as leading the programs at Colorado and Washington. “I know there are some issues in Rick’s past that concern our constituency,” Guerrero said. “We have discussed those at length with Rick and have investigated those issues with the NCAA. It has been at least five years and, in some cases, more than 10 years since the incidents occurred. We believe Rick has learned from those incidents and that he is more mature and experienced in the areas of compliance.” Neuheisel beat out Walker and Philadelphia Eagles assistant John Harbaugh for the job, but certainly was not UCLA’s first choice. UCLA was rebuffed in attempts to hire Boise State’s Chris Petersen and Oregon’s Mike Bellotti before settling for Neuheisel. “I am thrilled to be returning to my alma mater as its head coach,” Neuheisel said. “UCLA is a special place and I want to thank Dan Guerrero and Chancellor (Gene) Block for the opportunity to come home. We are going to build a program our supporters will be proud of, both on and off the field. I can’t wait to get started. I made some mistakes earlier in my career and I take responsibility for those mistakes. I have learned from that experience and I would never do anything that would reflect negatively on UCLA.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
