 The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, and the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, have advised financiers in the country to pay claims promptly to retain public confidence.

Speaking at the 50th anniversary of the Nigeria Insurers Association (NIA), Minister Ahmed, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Aliyu Ahmed, said the consolidated insurance bill currently before the National Assembly would redefine the insurance business and meet stakeholders’ expectations when signed into law.

While Governor Sanwo-Olu, who was represented by his Commissioner for Finance, Dr. Rabiu Olowo, noted that the body has lived up to expectations by maintaining standards in the industry.

He urged the association to do more to sustain the momentum of growth, creativity and innovation recorded in the past fifty years.

In his remarks, the NIA Chairman, Ganiyu Musa, urged the Federal Government and state governments to continue to support the industry through the enactment of policies that would ensure a level-playing field for all players.
