NIA Launches "Wetin U Carry" To Tackle Fake Motor Vehicle Insurance

The Nigeria Insurers Association at the recent launch of the "Wetin U Carry" campaign acknowledged that about 9.47m insurance vehicles are missing in the industry database of the country. 

It reported that of the 12m vehicles registered in Nigeria, only 2.53m are captured in the Nigerian Insurance Industry Database(NIID). 

This means that a whopping 9.47 million are either without insurance cover or have fake insurance. 

The huge gap, said the NIA, is mind-boggling and not only robs the industry of its expected revenue but puts many Nigerian publics on risks of accident, death or other losses without compensation.

NIA said it would go all out to let Nigerians realize that the insurance policy in their hands is a valuable asset that should be cherished, which implies that they get their cover from the right sources.

The Director-General of the NIA Yetunde Ilori believed the association desires to put the slogan, "Wetin U Carry", on the lips of everybody. She said the slogan is not meant to punish motorists for not having insurance, but to enable them check by themselves whether what they have as insurance is genuine or not.
