It was for the members of the National Association of Insurance and Pension Correspondents, a right step taken at the right time with the route map provided by formidable experts in insurance and economy, the first media parley in the new year sponsored by two firms, Boff & Company Insurance Company Limited and B. Adedipe Associates Limited, (management &v financial consultants).
The pair of Chief Babajide Olatunde-Agbeja, the chairman/chief executive officer Boff & Co and Dr. Biodun Adedipe the chief consultant B. Adedipe Associates Limited, made a detour into the road not taken to explain the workings of insurance from marketing by the insurance companies to client cover and risk management services offered by the brokers that are ultimately placed at the underwriting table and when the risk happens at the claims desk on the one hand, and also insight into the economy in 2021 and previous years and what to expect in 2022 taken into consideration why things on several fronts do not work in Nigeria.
However, their believe and convention tenaciously held is that things that are currently not working or are deliberately made to summersault by policies in the government establishment and corporate blizzards could be reversed by sustained joint and regular engagements that will make Nigeria act as it was regularly referred to: the giant of Africa; that once convened the Concert of Medium Powers under the watch of Prof Bolaji Akinyemi then foreign minister. It was attended by several counties including Canada. It was also a formidable force in crushing the last bastion of colonialism, apartheid, and a frontline state for political freedom for Southern African countries.
