The Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) said it will partner with Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria to address the dearth of manpower in the insurance industry.
The newly elected Chairman, Kaduna State Chapter of the institute, Mr Olugbenga Ogunsanya stated this shortly after being sworn in.
According to him, the insurance industry is faced with various challenges including shortage of manpower, particularly in northern part of the country.
“Therefore, we have concluded plans to partner with ABU where they are currently offering degree in insurance to make sure that the department is accredited by CIIN.
“We will give them material and all the support they need to produce quality insurance professionals to meet the manpower needs of the industry.
“By so doing, we would increase the number of insurance professionals in northern Nigeria starting from Kaduna and northern region at large”.
