NAICOM assures female insurers of support

The Commissioner for Insurance, National Insurance Commission, Mr Sunday Thomas, has applauded the Professional Insurance Ladies Association for its achievements in the insurance industry.

A statement on Sunday said Thomas spoke at the official inauguration of the multimillion-naira PILA House in Lagos.

He noted that women were taking up important space in leadership and doing a great job at it.

“Women are multipliers. Whatever you give to them, they make better, and as we have seen with PILA and this beautiful edifice, our women have taken charge and doing great things. You will always have my support,” he said.

While delivering his speech as the special guest of honour, Thomas acknowledged the support of the Lagos State Commissioner for Finance, Dr Rabiu Olowo, to the cause of the industry, saying the action underscored the disposition of the Lagos State government towards insurance.

In his goodwill message, the Chairman, House Committee on Insurance, Mr Darlington Nwokocha, extended the felicitations of the House of Representatives to the association.

“I am proud of the Professional Insurance Ladies Association and all they have done. This beautiful secretariat here is another progressive development for the industry,” he said.

He expressed the commitment of the House of Representatives to the growth of the association and the industry with the donation of a public address system for the new secretariat.

While welcoming dignitaries to the event, the President, PILA, Joyce Ojemudia, thanked all stakeholders.

Ojemudia, who is also the managing director/chief executive officer, African Alliance Insurance Plc, said, “This beautiful edifice is the culmination of many years of planning, pushing and belief. It is a good thing to praise the Lord, our help in ages past and our sustenance at all times.”
