How to get free N1000 from FCMB

by Johnson Daniel

FCMB is a large financial services provider in Nigeria, offering retail banking, corporate banking and investment banking services to large corporations, small and medium enterprises, as well as individuals. With so many years of experience, FCMB has helped lots of Nigerians save money and this month, they have decided to do some kind of giveaway that seems as if they want to get more people to bank with them.

FCMB is giving out N1000 to every person who opens an account with them starting from the 9th of April, 2020. By opening an account with them, I don’t mean that you just walk up to an FCMB bank now and open an account there, not that. The free N1000 will be given to only those who open an FCMB account online. The best part of all this is that it won’t take long for you to open the FCMB account online.scrnli 4 10 2020 9 00 35 AM
