The Director-General of the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria, CIIN, Mrs Abimbola Tiamiyu has celebrate the women professional in the insurance for talent, hard work and achievements.
Tiamiyu who was elevate by the courage to achieve a fest in life, dropped a note in the institute tweeter handle yesterday, greet the women for driving growth in the sector.
“Women have earned the right to be respected because of their talent, hard work and achievements”
She continued, “It is pleasing to see that there are more women taking a place at the head of the table and driving positive growth”
A few weeks ago, the 61-year old premier professional body, Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) welcomed Mrs. Abimbola Tiamiyu as its new Director General. She is the first woman to hold this position since 1993 when Mrs. Caludiana Brown served as Acting Registrar
This exciting news is coming shortly after the Nigeria Insurers Association (NIA) elected Mrs. Ebele Nwachukwu as its Vice Chairman, a position that means she will be decorated as the Chairman in 2022 after the new Chairman, Mr. Ganiyu Musa passes the baton. The NIA Secretariat, you may know, is headed by the indefatigable Director General, Mrs. Yetunde Ilori.
Also, it would be necessary to remind us that the Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) is currently led by Dr. (Mrs.) Bola Onigbogi who stepped in as President last year; and this is besides the Professional Insurance Ladies Association (PILA) which is, of course, headed by a new President, Mrs, Joyce Ojemudia who just came on board last May.
The list will not be complete without the mention of Mrs. Bukola Ifemade who chairs the influential Lagos Area Committee of the NCRIB, and Mrs. Yeside Oyetayo, the Rector of the College of Insurance and Financial Management, a full-fledged college set up by CIIN to undertake its training functions.
These women are jointly and severally, if you may permit me to put it that way, on one mission: to transform the insurance industry in Nigeria
