ECOBANK Plc. Ecobank is Nigeria’s largest bank brand with over 600 branches. It is also the widest banking network in Africa with presence in 32 countries predominantly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI), a public limited liability company, was established as a bank holding company in 1985 under a private sector initiative spearheaded by the Federation of West African Chambers of Commerce and Industry with the support of ECOWAS. The dual objective of ETI is to build a world-class Pan-African Bank and to contribute to the economic and financial integration and development of the African continent.
The 100% acquisition of the shareholding in Oceanic Bank in 2011 has increased the asset base of Ecobank Nigeria, a subsidiary of ETI, making it one of the five largest banks in Nigeria. Today, with over 610 free-standing branches, Ecobank Nigeria is the second-largest bank in the country by branch network.

The “Win Big with Ecobank” promo gives each customer the opportunity to own new cars at each of four monthly draws and a grand prize of a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) at the grand draw.
New customers who open an account with a minimum of N20,000 will be entitled to an instant gift and also qualify for the monthly draw if they maintain the deposit for a 30 day period. Existing customers who increase their balance by N20,000 qualify for the draw and multiples of N20,000 give the customer more chance of winning. To be eligible for the grand prize a customer is expected to maintain a minimum balance of N20,000 for 4 months to give a total of N80,000; multiple entries of N80,000 was permissible.
