Insurers sought close ties with members of the organized private sector (OPS), adding that this would expose OPS members to the gains and values ​​of insurance for their business and at the same time open up business opportunities for insurers. .

The insurers said so during a visit by a delegation from the Nigerian Board of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) to the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI).

During the meeting, LCCI Chairman Dr. Michael Olawale Cole expressed the chamber’s readiness to establish better collaboration with the Nigerian Board of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) to open up the whole from the organized private sector to insurance values. .

Olawale-Cole, while receiving the NCRIB delegation led by the Chairman, Mr. Rotimi Edu, believed that the Chamber, one of the major and formidable platforms for financial advocacy, would be offered to insurance brokers to spread knowledge on the values ​​of business and commercial insurance.

Also speaking, NCRIB Chairman, Mr. Rotimi Edu, said the Council’s visit to LCCI was part of the Council’s strategic engagement with professional bodies with the aim of expanding the boundaries of its relevance within of the organized private sector in Nigeria.

He urged the Chamber to use its platform to educate its members on the importance of all compulsory insurance, adding that the insurance industry was not yet where it should be in terms of patronage and support. public acceptance.

“We will appreciate your Chamber involving NCRIB in some of your programs, both internationally and nationally, allowing the Council to tell the story. If the House preaches this to all its members, it will provide comfort in times of claim.

Edu said exposing the council to an alliance with government and independent bodies is in fulfillment of his promise to the council in this regard during his inauguration and acceptance speech.
