ADDRESS BY SIR (DR) MUFTAU OYEGUNLE, PRESIDENT/CHAIRMAN IN COUNCIL, CHARTERED INSURANCE INSTITUTE OF NIGERIA AT THE INSTITUTE’S QUIZ COMPETITION FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS HELD AT MODELS GIRLS SECONDARY SCHOOLS RUMUEME, OBALGA, PORT HARCOURT ON MAY 25, 2022.
On behalf of the Governing Council of the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) and the Institute’s Quiz Committee; I welcome you all to today’s event, which is the 5th edition of the CIIN quiz competition for Secondary School Students in Nigeria. It is indeed a great honour and pleasure to be in your midst today.
This quiz competition is borne out of the CIIN’s desire to enlighten and introduce young minds to the amazing world of insurance. This initiative is also aimed at promoting the significance of insurance in our daily lives, community development, poverty elimination, economic advancement and world peace.
Insurance ensures that we have adequate safety nets against the misfortunes of life by providing compensation for its customers that enable them to survive the adversities of life. Hence, insurance provides us with a means of protecting ourselves and our families from unexpected but possible financial losses while also enhancing the capacity to build wealth.
This competition is designed to create awareness amongst you, the young adults; who we consider the future of our industry, about the importance of insurance as a service and the career opportunities it offers to students like you.
It is my belief that whatever you have learnt during the preparation for the competition shall impact your lives positively. Similarly, the knowledge and information you receive here today would assist you in your career choices.
I sincerely hope that every student here would maximise the opportunities which this competition provides and make insurance his/her course of first choice when going into the university.
Permit me to inform you that this competition is not all about winning but also about having fun while learning more about insurance.
Once again, I welcome you all to this programme. I appreciate the Institute and everyone here present who have assisted in one way or the other in making this programme a reality.
I wish all the participants the best of luck. Let us have an interesting quiz competition.
Thank you and God bless.
