Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero has called on Nigerians to embrace insurance as a means of relieving loss, especially in businesses and property loss.
Emir Bayero made the call on Tuesday when the Management of the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) led by the Commissioner for Insurance, Olorundare Sunday Thomas paid a courtesy visit to his Palace in Kano.
He commended the leadership of NAICOM for the giant strides and efforts in developing the Nigerian insurance market, and urged the commission to ensure that insurance obligations are adequately met by insurers.
Emir Bayero said that insurance is no doubt an important aspect of human life, noting that extensive research has shown that insurance is not conflicting with religious belief, especially with the coming of Takaful insurance.
He appreciated the commission for the visit and promised to support insurance deepening in the country, assuring that he would attend the National Insurance conference scheduled for October 22 to 24, 2023, in Abuja.
The Commissioner for Insurance, Olorundare Thomas thanked the Emir for the warm reception and his acceptance to personally attend the National Insurance Conference.
The Commission thereafter named the Emir Aminu Ado Bayero as Royal Ambassador for Insurance in the country and commended his style of leadership since he became the Emir of Kano.
