Diamond Bank Plc, one of the leading retail banks in Nigeria, is exciting Nigerian youths with the launch of the Diamond S.W.A.G Account at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife venue of this yearâ€™s on-going National Universities Games Association (NUGA) games.
SWAG, an accronym for â€˜Student With A Goal,’ is a newly designed proposition targeted at helping Nigerian youths achieve their financial goals with the right support.
Diamond Bank is the Lead Sponsor of this yearâ€™s NUGA Games, its 24th edition.
Head, Youths and School Banking Propositions at Diamond Bank, Mr. Victor Nwagwu, who doubles as co-ordinator for the Diamond Center at the NUGA Games, said early signs indicate that students are excited about the SWAG Account.
He said, â€œIn just two hours that we started operations here at the NUGA, we have recorded over a hundred accounts opened and funded and more are expected before the close of work as many of the students are making efforts to conclude with the account opening requirements. The responses are quite encouraging.”
Nwagwu explained that all one needs to open the S.W.A.G Account is to complete the account opening form, attach a student ID/NYSC ID and one passport photograph. He added that some interested students have been recruited by the Bank as Direct Sales Executives to effectively drive the sales of Diamond SWAG among the youths.
