The Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) has vowed
to permeate all nooks and crannies of Nigeria to propagate the gospel of Insurance.
Its President Babatunde Oguntade, said this yesterday at the December 2023 Edition of Members’ Evening in Lagos, adding that insurance as a business is gaining more grounds and brokers can only leverage on this to deepen insurance understanding and awareness in the society.
He submitted that his administration would also improve the wellbeing of brokers, stressing that
if there is anything that has occupied the minds of many members of the Council for a while, it is how the NCRIB could accelerate its value rendition to members.
“I like to note that the agitation of members in this regard was not wrongly placed, considering the challenges they face on all ends, necessitating immediate collective solution from the Council.
“In addressing this, our team will intensify efforts to make the Council’s training more relevant, affordable and accessible.
“We shall also be taking advantage of Public Sector training for the benefit of Practitioners outside the industry,” he said.
Oguntade asserted that some of the trainings to be organised for members would be pro-bono, stating that council’s trainings were quite strategic after identifying in clear terms the immediate and future challenges threatening Brokers.
He submitted that feedbacks from most of the trainings held in the past were quite impressive.
“It is the desire of this management that all the gatherings of Members would be intellectually resourceful, not just only on the professional lane, but also, health and other aspects of our being,” he posited.
Oguntade maintained that it is the intention of his administration to sustain the legacies of past administrations, to build on it and move the Council to a lofty height, adding that they shall continue to strengthen the ties of the Council with relevant international bodies. One of such is the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA).
He submitted that the Council, by the special grace of God, would be part of the BIBA Conference 2024, holding in Manchester, United Kingdom between May 15 and 16, 2024, whilst urging members to save the date, prepare to be part of delegations to the Conference because all things being equal, NCRIB delegates would also have the benefit of interacting with leagues of professionals during the tour
