“Today is my birthday as I rededicate it to the service of insurance. I use this day to air my commitment to the insurance education and penetration in Nigeria.
“As I’m marking a new age, I strongly believe what I can give is to let people know what insurance is capable of doing for them, as our society is shifting away from communal living.
“With the rate at which risk is increasing in our society, there is need for vigorous enlightenment so as to help insurance buying public to protect and recreate wealth,” he said.
He noted that as a stakeholder in the insurance industry and in Nigeria and as a nation builder, it does break his heart when he sees people going through unpleasant situation that insurance could have assist them to address but lack of knowledge had made a lot of these victims to suffer.
“Close to two decades in my career, hearing people say they don’t want or need insurance, shows there is knowledge gabs which I am having a big concern for while I have resolved to encourage my colleagues in the industry to do more because insurance remains a vital means to reduce poverty and to alleviate problems,” he said.
