NAICOM to partner Katsina State

The Commissioner for Insurance on Friday 13th May, 2022 paid a visit to His Excellency Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State. In his address, the CFI said he is in Katsina to apprise the Governor on the Commission's  core functions, activities and seek his collaboration in enforcement of compulsory insurances in the state. The Commissioner also commended the Governor on his effort in transforming Katsina despite challenges facing the state. He stated that the state is a critical stakeholder in increasing insurance penetration especially in the uptake of Takaful insurance.

The Governor in his response commended the leadership of the Commission for taking the bold step of reaching out to the excluded segment of the population that basically have no idea what insurance is all about. He urge the Commission to focus more on sensitising the masses on the importance of insurance using the traditional and religious leaders rather than enforcement. He also directed that the Ministry of commerce in the state to liase with the budget to ensure all government buildings in the state are insured.
