The President/Chairman of Council, Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) Mr. Edwin Igbiti, has called on members of the National Association of Insurance and Pension Correspondents (NAIPCO) to partner with him in his administration as the 51st President of CIIN to take the Institute and insurance industry to the next level.
The CIIN President made the call yesterday when the newly elected officers of the Association paid him a courtesy visit at the Institute’s Secretariat in Lagos
CIIN President, who commended the Association for their support for the Institute and the insurance industry at large thus far, said “I will like to seek your partnership for a successful administration and also reiterate the Institute’s commitment and support to the Association.
“Permit me to equally seize this opportunity to once again congratulate the newly elected Executive Members of the Association. This is new dispensation for you all and we hope to see you record huge success through your leadership and reportage of the insurance industry. Kindly be assured of the Institute support throughout your administration.
“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.
The CIIN President in seeking support and partnership of members of NAIPCO drew their 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.
Igbiti said the choice of the theme was borne out of the need for continuity, to sustain and build on the works of Past Presidents of the Institute, adding that this will guarantee that despite current global uncertainties, the Institute will continue to meet the needs and aspirations of its members.
While responding to the CIIN President’s speech, NAIPCO Chairperson, Mrs. Nkechi Naeche Esezobor, congratulated CIIN President on his election and inauguration as the 51 President of the Institute.
Mrs. Naeche-Esezobor who pledged NAIPCO’s continued support to CIIN especially in the coverage of the Institute’s activities 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 generally.
NAIPCO Chairperson also told 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.
