No Comments Share:

Against the backdrop of myriad of challenges confronting Nigeria as a nation, especially the
economy due to COVID-19, the Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers would be
yielding its 2020 National Insurance Brokers Conference and Exhibition to discuss on how to
rebuild devastated structures and institutions.
The Conference, which will be hybrid of both physical and virtual meeting, in adherence to
government directives on social distancing, is expected to draw participants across the globe
and would be preceded by the Annual General Meeting of the Council.
According to the Council, Mr. Steve White, Chief Executive Officer of British Insurance Brokers
Association (BIBA) would be speaking on the theme paper “Rebuilding Institutions post COVID-
19” while Mr. Yomi Adebanjo, Company Secretary, Fidson Healthcare Plc would be speaking of
“Dissecting CAMA 2020”.
Addressing journalists at a pre conference press briefing, the President of the Council, Dr. (Mrs.)
Bola Onigbogi, noted that the acceptance of Mr. Steve White to deliver the theme paper gives
international coloration to the Conference as she said that delegates would be benefiting from
BIBA’s experience, particularly, its systematic way of building institutions.
Mrs. Onigbogi noted that the choice of Mr. Steve White, who was appointed the Chief
Executive Officer of BIBA in 2013 was based on his pedigree and achievement as the CEO of the
largest Insurance Broking regulatory body in the world.
According to her, it is expected that after the conference, delegates are to be stimulated to get
involved in systematic rebuilding of institutions that might have been destroyed by the advent
of COVID-19.
NCRIB President also noted that the choice of “Dissecting CAMA 2020” as the sub theme for the
conference was based on the need for the Council’s members and delegates to understand the
nitty-gritty of the new law promulgated by the Federal Government to regulate business
“The approval of the new CAMA 2020 demonstrates government’s commitment to improving
the ease of doing business in Nigeria. I believe that the various reforms of the new act will
simplify regulatory processes, improve the operating business environment and re-energize the
private sector which is the growth engine of Nigeria.
“Therefore, it is expedient for us as a body to understand the basic requirements and demand
of our business to guide against running afoul of the law. Rising from this conference, it is

hopeful that delegates would have been educated on what is needed to thrive in the present
Nigerian business environment. The choice of Mr. Adebanjo to deliver the sub theme paper was
deliberate and apt, Onigbogi noted
