The President/Chairman of Council, Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) Mr. Edwin Igbiti, says partnership with the National Association of Insurance and Pension Correspondents (NAIPCO) is key to his administration’s thrust to take the Institute and insurance industry to the next level.
The CIIN President made the call when the newly elected officers of the Association paid him a courtesy visit at the Institute’s secretariat at Ebute Metta, Yaba, Lagos; there he commended the Association members for the support deployed for the Institute and the insurance industry, saying “I will like to seek your partnership for a successful administration and also reiterate the Institute’s commitment and support to the Association.
While commending the new executives Igbiti persuaded them to sprint on the track of success, enhance insurance reports and reiterated the support of the Institute through this exco term.
“I, specially appreciate you all for the massive coverage you gave my investiture ceremony. This hugely attributed to the success of my investiture as the 51st President of the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria; I am deeply grateful for the huge support and partnership,” Mr. Igbiti said.
Still aiming for better media coverage the CIIN President drew attention to the theme of his administration “Building Sustainable Legacy,” which he said focuses on three points agenda of Digital Reinforcement of Institute’s Operations; Insurance Awareness for all – Grassroot, Youths and Insuring Public and Infrastructural Development.
He said this was borne out of the need for continuity, sustain and build on the works of past presidents of the Institute, and also, guarantee that despite current global uncertainties, the Institute will continue to meet the needs and aspirations of its members.
Responding, NAIPCO Chairperson, Mrs. Nkechi Naeche-Esezobor, congratulated CIIN President on his election and inauguration as the 51 President of the Institute. She als pledged NAIPCO’s continued support to CIIN especially in the coverage of the Institute’s activities and called on the CIIN President to see to the welfare of NAIPCO members to inspire them to do more for the Institute and the insurance industry at large.
NAIPCO Chairperson also challenged the CIIN to review its media and publicity strategies to accommodate more journalists for the coverage of the Institute’s activities as this will give the Institute more mileage especially in their awareness drive to deepen insurance penetration in the country.
