WELCOME ADDRESS BY SIR (DR) MUFTAU OYEGUNLE PRESIDENT/CHAIRMAN OF COUNCIL, CHARTERED INSURANCE INSTITUTE OF NIGERIA AT 2022 CIIN NITE OF TALENTS HELD AT TEN DEGREES EVENT CENTRE, IKEJA, LAGOS ON 18TH MARCH, 2022
I am delighted to welcome you all to this social event themed ‘CIIN Nite of Talents’ put together by the Institute for the Industry.
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight’s event is the first of its kind and the maiden edition of our social night. It is vital to note that the ‘CIIN Nite of Talents’ is a remodel and departure from the former ‘Miss Insurance Pageantry’ programme.
The ‘Nite of Talents’ was created for the purpose of promoting insurance awareness, intellectual prowess and gender equality as it will showcase the intellectual capabilities of the next generation of insurance practitioners in the industry; and this will consequently help boost insurance adoption.
The Quiz Competition is the highlight of the night as several contestants from insurance companies through displaying their potentials will compete for the crown. The winner from this contest aside getting a notable prize will also function as the CIIN ambassador for insurance for a year where he/she will be engaged in several programmes geared towards projecting the Insurance Industry and the CIIN to the world.
May the best man or woman wear the crown!
Ladies and Gentlemen, be assured that activities that will take place this night will be captivating and exciting. We have here with us several top personalities in the industry and associate bodies; this already adds glamour to this event you will agree with me aside the rich entertainment we have in place for you.
There are plethora of activities lined up for your pleasure tonight and I can guarantee you will have an unforgettable experience. Remember the popular parlance: All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy but I will say “All work and no fun makes the Insurance Industry Dull”. So, relax and enjoy this thrilling event as we will be unwinding, mingling and generally showcasing our intellects in a laid back and cordial environment.
A warm welcome to you all once again as I officially declare the show open. Do have a fun-filled night!
Sir. (Dr.) Muftau Oyegunle, ACII, FIIN
President/Chairman of Council
