October, 2020 Violence: An Opportunity To Communicate The Value Of Insurance To Nigerians - Ekerete Ola Gam-Ikon
One major takeaway from the carnage stemming from the escalation of violence perpetrated by hoodlums, who exploited the #ENDSARS protests across cities in Nigeria is the need to improve communications on the value of insurance.
Mr Ekerete Ola Gam-Ikon, a management consultant and insurance expert disclosed this as a guest on the "Economy and Politics" show anchored by Ottoabasi Abasiekong.
He believed the unprecedented destruction of properties, loss of lives and burning of national assets and infrastructure provided the opportunity for deepening the insurance industry in Nigeria.
Speaking further he stressed the need for insurance to be brought to the frontburner of national development, while the regulator NAICOM should drive micro-insurance and engage stakeholders/citizens on the immense opportunities in the industry.
