THE President of the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN), Lady Isioma Chukwuma, has called for support of all arms of the insurance industry for professional training in the market.
Speaking during her courtesy visit to the Nigerian Insurers Association (NIA) in Lagos, said the institute is grateful to the association for the immense contribution to the success of the maiden edition of the insurance industry mega conference which has brought the industry to limelight.
She said on behalf of our Governing Council, I wish to acknowledge NIA’s co-operation and contribution in recognition and support for the CIIN as the training and educational arm of the industry, the establishment and sustenance of the Insurance Industry Consultative Council (IICC) as a uniform platform for intra-industry co-operation, and the hosting of the Joint Media Retreat for Insurance correspondents
According to her, the conference has put the insurance industry in good stead to realize its potentials and surmount all the challenges facing our profession if the industry arms continue to act in one accord at all times.
It is in light of this that I must also express the confidence of our members in the ability of the NIA as it assumes the leadership role in the planning of the second edition of the mega conference as agreed upon at the last meeting of the Insurance Industry Consultative Council (IICC).
She said, “It is a great delight to be here today on the occasion of yet another opportunity to reinforce the bonds of intra-industry unity and co-operation. This being one of my major visits since assuming the Presidency of our great Institute, I wish to acknowledge the fact that the visit occupies a prime position in my itinerary”.
In his remark, the Chairman of the Nigerian Insurers Association Godwin U.S. Wiggle, thanked the CIIN President for the visit and assured her of the support of the Governing Council and entire membership of the Association.
“We welcome you to NIA and do assure you of our support as always. The CIIN and NIA have enjoyed very cordial relationship over the years and your visit has further strengthened the bond. The Insurance industry is one big family and we have to co-operate at all times in the interest of the insurance profession” he stated.
“Insurance is our business and as the President of our professional body, the onus is on all of us to support you to succeed so that our profession will get the kind of recognition it rightly deserves” he said.
