Patronize insurance brokers, NCRIB urges NAMA

By on April 6, 2011

The Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) has appealed to the management of Nigerian Airspace Management Authority (NAMA) to urge its members for their continued patronage of insurance brokers to enhance broking profession.

The council further appealed to NAMA to also ensure regular payment of premium and brokerage commission on its insurances.

Making this appeal recently in Lagos, President/Chairman, Governing Board of NCRIB, Alhaji Teslim Sanusi said that the council reckons that given the strategic nature of airspace management as an institution, insurance of its assets should be given premium consideration.

Through enhanced patronage by such large institutions, Alhaji Sanusi emphasised that insurance industry would be able to contribute its quota to national economic development thereby becoming a relevant institution in the country.

According to him, with the improved collaborative relationship between insurance brokers and underwriters, especially under the Consult Lead principle, the insurance industry has become more harmonised to take advantage of the market.

However, Alhaji Sanusi affirmed that the council has resolved to protect its members against any form of anti-broker activity by clients, thereby urging members to always avail the council with relevant information for the collective benefit of members.

Meanwhile, the Council President further explained that in realization of the fact that the relevance of any professional institution was its ability to render valued services to its member has resolved to improve its line of communication with members.

He explained the secretariat has since been mandated to utilize a four-way communication strategy in relating with members which includes the use of e-mails, text messages, regular placement of information on the website and dissemination of notice through area committees.

Henceforth, he said that the area committee would be given crucial roles to play in the yearly renewal of NCRIB memberships. This step, according to him would significantly buoy up the attendance of area and chapter activities by members and make such organs more vibrant and effective.

While imploring members to complement the efforts of the council by imbibing effective usage of information technology, Alhaji Sanusi disclosed that the secretariat would soon commence the full utilization of social marketing strategies through facebook, twitters, blog to promote insurance awareness as well as propagate the relevance of brokers in the insurance chain.
