We are working on fully digitising our operations and hopefully, by October 2022, the Institute will be holding its first-ever online professional examination, President, Chartered Insurance Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) Sir. Muftau Oyegunle, has said.
He said this at the recently concluded 2021 Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria annual education seminar in Kano, Kano State, adding that the Institute is standing strong and continues to reinvent itself even more relevant in the larger scheme of things especially in the Post COVID -19 world.
Oyegunle submitted that the seminar theme: “Risk Management in the Agricultural Value Chain: The Insurance Mechanism” was specially selected to throw further light on the importance of the role of insurance to the growth of agriculture in Nigeria.
He noted that good risk management would be conducive to building a sound, advanced, and open modern agriculture practice for small farmers.
The CIIN boss maintained that strengthening risk management in all areas of agriculture such as production, disaster-prevention, sales, will help ensure the correct use and promotion of the acceptance of agricultural technology especially by small and medium enterprise farmers, adding that it would also help to stabilise the market supply of agricultural products and promote the industrialisation of agriculture for farmers at levels.
He submitted that as risk managers, it is a lot of insurers to increase the tempo of their campaigns for insurance awareness and professionalism in order to get more people to stand up and take notice and for more Nigerians to embrace insurance as a profession and as a service offering.
“The Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria will continue to leverage on all platforms to ensure the propagation of insurance education, awareness, and the highest levels of professionalism obtainable in the industry. The institute’s creed is centered on its mandate to provide world-class manpower with the highest standard of professional and ethical training for the Nigerian and International business community.
“I would like to use this opportunity to state that the Institute is standing strong and continues to reinvent itself even more relevant in the larger scheme of things, especially in the Post Covid-19 world. We are working on fully digitizing our operations and hopefully, by October 2022, the Institute will be holding its first-ever online professional examination,” he said.
He posited that no effort can be too much in the collective quest for increased Insurance consciousness in the nation, stressing that the 2021 Education Seminar was, therefore, a call for all hands to be on deck in the actualization of the insurance industry agenda.
