The Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) is eyeing a fully digitized e-library to enable it drives its planned research projects.
President of the CIIN, Sir. Muftau Oyegunle, who said this in an interview with Inspenonline, noted that the institute had planned to execute two reserach projects yearly, adding that the researches would help address issues clogging insurance growth.
He implored Insurance practitioners to support the e-library project to enable the institute fully achieve the initiative.
According to him, the project results would also help adviced professionals on classes of insurance business with huge potentials that could as well improve the fortunes of professionals.
He noted that the institute is keenly following trends in the economy and would continue to align its syllabus with current global trends.
He urged insurers to up their games by moving with the present trends. He added that individuals who failed to meet the skill requirements outlined by their firms, may be out of job.
“Two of the visions of setting up the College of Insurance, are education and research. When we had our retreat early this year, we gave the Rector of the College a directive that mandated the college to research in order to find out the technical needs of the industry. That report would be released to the industry very soon.
“We are working on that. We know research is part of our mandate and we are taking it very seriously. By the grace of God, before the end of my tenure, at least we must release our published research to the industry.” he said.
