Nigeria’s leading insurance broking firm, Scib Nigeria & Company Limited, which is presently celebrating its 40th anniversary, is projecting to become number one broker in Africa.
The firm which had produced top insurance professionals like, the Managing Director, Leadway Assurance Limited, Hassan Oye-Odukale; Managing Director, Consolidated Hallmark Insurance, Eddie Efekoha; Managing Director, FBNInsurance Limited, Val Ojumah and more, is also targeting regional expansion in Africa; building a magnificent corporate edifice in Lagos; engaging in intermediating insurance services through robust information and technology platforms and more.
The Founder and Chairman of the foremost broking firm, Olola Ogunlana, at the anniversary celebration, which was attended by stakeholders from all sectors of the economy, in Lagos yesterday, noted that to inspire the company at its formation, he used the watchword, from a nursery rhyme, which had guided his life since 1938, when he was enrolled in St. Paul’s Breadfruit Primary School, Lagos.
He said the simple but inspiring rhyme provided the core value on which Scib Nigeria & Company Limited was built and nurtured. He appreciated the board, management and staff of the company on reaching the milestone.
