The newly elected President of the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) Sir. Muftau Oyegunle, has pledged to take the institute to lofty heights by reinforcing professionalism and ethics.
He said this today in Lagos, while giving his acceptance speech at his investiture as the 50th President of the Institute.
Oyegunle, who unveiled a six-point agenda, on which his administration hopes to leverage in driving the institute forward, said the choice of his theme which is: ‘Reinforcing Professionalism and Ethics in the New Order’ is borne out of the need to establish a rolling plan which will guarantee that even in the face of current global uncertainties, the Institute will continue to meet the needs of members.
“Against this background, we are going to explore the potentials of this approach by focusing on a six point agenda. Digital Transformation of the Institute. Reinforcement of the Relevance of Professionalism. Re-energizing the Institute’s Administrative Structure. Insurance Awareness and Youth Mentorship Initiatives. Infrastructural Development and Advocacy and Collaboration with various Associations in the Private Sector,” he said.
Oyegunle said he hopes to pursue a programme that will help create new operation process and work culture at the institute’s Secretariat. This, he said will be with a view to create a new customer experience. “This Programme will be pursued to lay the required base for the continued relevance of the Secretariat in the new order.
“This is what we need to do to change our Customers experiences, operational processes and business model,” he added.
According to him, all set programmes would required investment to actualize them, he therefore solicited for financial support from Industry stakeholders and friends to change the face of the Institute in this era of a new normal.
He noted that the current developments in the world at large and in Nigeria in particular call for collaboration to reposition the profession and the Industry, adding that all stakeholders should work together to remain in business.
