Diversification: Buhari tasks insurers on product design

…lauds their intervention at peak of COVID-19

 

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday urged insurance firms in Nigeria to take advantage of ongoing efforts by the Federal Government to grow the non-oil sector of the economy through innovation and product design.

 

Commending their role in encouraging medical practitioners to tackle spread of COVID-19, the president, who spoke virtually from Abuja at the opening ceremony of the 47th African Insurance Organisation (AIO) Conference and Annual General Assembly taking place in Lagos, said the insurance sector would play a vital role in the diversification of the economy by bringing “necessary stability, economic sustainability, revenue generation, job creation and financial inclusiveness.’’

“There is a great future for the Insurance industry  in Africa. We only need to put the right mechanism in place for it to thrive. I assure you that this administration has and will continue to support Insurance growth in Nigeria and Africa at large.

 

“I commend the leadership of the AIO for the resilience, foresight and perseverance in ensuring that the African Insurance market strives to meet its expectations in the global market notwithstanding the prevailing challenges,’’ he said.

 

President Buhari said the theme of the conference, “Rebuilding Africa’s Economy: An Insurance Perspective,” was apt and well thought out to respond to the reality of the moment as many governments try to devise ingenious ways to manage their economy in the aftermath of the COVID- 19.

 

“The pandemic has indeed changed many perspectives that have forced leaders across the globe to think hard for remedies.

 

“I want to assure you that we in Nigeria are doing everything humanly possible to ensure coordinated approach to the pandemic and reaching out to other African leaders on possible best options to fully revive the African economy in which I strongly believe the Insurance industry has a vital role to play,’’ he added.

 

The President noted that the pandemic presented a global challenge, which led to lockdown of many countries, travel restrictions, and issuance of many health protocols, affecting all human, social and economic interactions that made hosting of the Conference impossible in 2020. “COVID-19 is still a serious challenge in many countries across the globe.

 

However, adequate protocols have been put in place to curb its spread and vaccination is in progress.

 

“We understand as a government and nation the need to frontally tackle some of the disruptions to our social, economic and health occasioned by the pandemic by putting in place sufficient measures that allow the system to function.”

 

In her remarks, the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed, said the foresight of the founders of the AIO deserved commendation as it had fostered African integration agenda and how best to collectively address shortcomings.

 

The minister urged the Insurance sector to design their products around the needs of society, especially for low income earners, noting that greater impact on development would only be possible by looking at the African peculiarity.
