The Director-General of Nigerian Insurers Association (NIA), Mr. Olorundare Thomas has expressed the association’s readiness to collaborate with any institution in developing the human capacity needs of the nation’s insurance market.

Thomas stated this while receiving a delegation of CICA Re led by its technical advisor, Mr. Aristide-Emile Kaneho, who paid a courtesy visit to the NIA secretariat recently in Lagos.

The representatives of CICA Re were in the country to discuss ways of training underwriters in some highly technical areas of insurance business to ensure proper risk pricing and quality service delivery to clients.

Having established a stronghold in Francophone countries, Kaneho said CICA Re is looking at bringing “a message” to the Nigerian market and expressed the hope that with the support of the association, the reinsurance company would achieve its objective.

According to him, CICA Re has been conducting training in CIMA region but wants to see what it can bring and get from the Nigerian market.

Responding, Thomas thanked the representatives of the reinsurance company for their interest in increasing the technical capacity in the industry through training, adding that the association’s major activity is essentially capacity building, advocacy and dissemination of relevant market information to all members.

He noted that technology had broken various forms of regional boundaries which the industry need to leverage on and expressed the hope that CICA Re would remain committed to its desire to show presence and bring value to the Nigerian market.
