The Emir of Kano, Alh. Aminu Ado Bayero has advised Nigerians to buy insurance products as a way of relieving loss, especially in businesses and property loss.
The Emir stated this when the Management of the Commission led by the Commissioner for Insurance, Olorundare Sunday Thomas paid a courtesy visit to the Emir’s Palace in Kano on recently.
Emir Ado Bayero also urged the Commission to ensure insurance obligations are adequately met by insurers and commended the leadership of the Commission for the giant strides and efforts in developing the Nigerian insurance market. He also reiterated that insurance is no doubt an important aspect of human life as extensive research has shown that insurance is not conflicting with religious belief, especially with the coming of Takaful insurance.
He thanked the Commission for the visit and promised to support insurance deepening in the country and further assured he would consider the invitation to the National Insurance Conference and will personally attend the conference.
The Commissioner thanked the royal father for the warm reception and his acceptance to personally attend the National Insurance Conference scheduled for October 22 – 24, 2023, in Abuja.
The Commission thereafter named the Emir Aminu Ado Bayero as Royal Ambassador for Insurance in the country and commended his style of leadership since his takeover of the throne.
