The President, Nigeria Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB), Dr Bola Onigbogi, has said that the decision to honour His Majesty, King Leslie N Eke, Eze Gbakagbaka, was as a result of his determination to support the South South Area Committee of the body.
Eze Gbakagbaka was honoured with Ambassadorial award by the insurance council.
Onigbogi made the remark when NCRIB paid a courtesy call on the royal father at his palace in Woji, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, last week.
She said the visit was not only to appreciate Eze Eke, but to also announce the council’s presence for the stakeholders’ meeting, conference and investiture of a new chairman of the Area Council held in Port Harcourt.
Describing Life Policy as a stand alone policy, she pointed out that there must be a reason to suffer loss before one can lay a valid claim to it.
She explained further that only clients registered through a registered insurance company would benefit in the event of any loss.
“In insurance, we consider the hard risk. If you insure life, you insure a lighter policy”, she said.
In his response, the Eze Oha Evo III of Evo Kingdom, informed his visitors that all forms of businesses including that of the insurance can now thrive in the state due to the infrastructural provisions made by the state Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike.
The monarch noted that Governor Wike has put in place all necessary infrastructure that can aid investment and called on investors to make good of the opportunity.
He also urged the insurance council to work out modalities on how to remove or reduce bottlenecks associated with insurance claims in order to have more clients and patronage.
Meanwhile, a group of women from the Kingdom, has also called on insurance practitioners to put in place some policies that will benefit women directly as burden bearers of the family
