The Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) will be taking insurance education to Lagos State workers and about 2,800 students, its President, Rotimi Edu, has said.
He disclosed this in an interview with Inspenonline, stating that the brokers fraternity will be hosting about 2,800 students in the arena of the Lagos lawn tennis club to mentor them on insurance.
He submitted that the initiative stemmed from the fact that the participants will grow with the knowledge as they work in different organisations.
“To deepen insurance penetration, we need to think beyond the box and look out for non-professionals. Since I took office and we started visitation, there are three major people that we have found in any company handling insurance, they are the accountants, managing director and admin. So, we have spoke to the Institute of Chartered Accountants, architects, because of buildings and they have asked us to come and talk to them during their annual conference. We would not stop there, we would also meet many other professional bodies,” he posited.
Edu also stated that the brokers are planning to bombard the Lagos State Secretariat to educate the people there on insurance, adding that when they leave the Secretariat, they would move to Allen Junction, Ikeja to also educate the people.
