The Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) has called on the Federal Government to urgently commence work on legal framework for the institutionalisation of the anti corruption war, to enable the fight outlived the present administration.
Its President Kayode Okunoren, dropped this hint a press parley in Lagos, adding that it is high time the present administration commence the conscientisation of Nigerians to re-create in the minds of the citizens the real virtues of honesty and transparency which was our hallmark many years past.
He said the NCRIB, will continue to cooperate with government in achieving the mandate on the war against corruption, stressing that there is no way insurance industry could grow in an environment with systematic corruption.
“I wish to spare some thoughts for the present administration’s anti graft war. It is no longer news that, Nigeria’s progress had been stultified by corruption and financial indiscipline and this has permeated the professions also.
“I hereby commend the ‘war’ and advice that government should work urgently on legal framework for the institutionalisation of the anti corruption war, even after the exit of the present administration.
“Also, the present administration should immediately commence on the conscientisation of Nigerians to re-create in the minds of the citizens the real virtues of honesty and transparency which was our hallmark many years past,” he said.
He noted that the NCRIB under his leadership will ensure that all necessary strategic engagements are done to further enhance the growth of insurance in Nigeria, as well as increase the relevance of Insurance Brokers.
