The Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers(NCRIB) has called for the support of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in the enforcement of e-insurance certificates in the country.

The council also commended the FRSC for reducing poverty and road risks, particularly during the celebration period in the country.

The president of the council, Prince Babatunde Oguntade disclosed during a courtesy visit by the council to the FRSC office in Abuja, that throughout the celebration period, the number of deaths and physical incapabilities that accidents on the road would have occasioned were drastically reduced.

Oguntade, also noted that, through the FRSC, there had been better adherence of road users to required automobile documentation, among them, third-party motor insurance, to the benefit of the road users and the entire insurance industry.

He underscored the importance of the FRSC’s support in ensuring the validity, currency, and other critical details of insurance certificates.

According to him, insurance brokers play a crucial role in ensuring that individuals and corporate entities receive maximum value from their insurance policies.

The NCRIB boss encouraged Nigerians to engage the services of registered insurance brokers, as many individuals who faced issues with their insurance did not utilise the expertise of registered brokers.

Oguntade commended the FRSC for its efforts in reducing road risks and accidents nationwide.

He said that due to the activities of the FRSC, the number of deaths and injuries resulting from road accidents had decreased.

NCRIB boss noted that the FRSC’s operations had improved compliance with necessary automobile documentation, including third-party motor insurance, benefiting the insurance industry.

In response, Deputy Corps Marshal for Admin and Human Resources of FRSC, Victor Nwokolo, commended NCRIB and its members for providing the necessary insurance and risk management support to the Corps. Mr Nwokolo assured that the FRSC would take stricter measures against those violating road regulations, including those within the insurance industry.

He pledged to collaborate with NCRIB on its proposed public sector training, focusing on enhancing the quality of manpower within the corps.
