He underscored the importance the company attaches to prompt claims settlement, noting that “we recognize the fact that the survival or acceptance, progress and reputation of any underwriting company are a function of its consistent ability to respond to claims issues promptly and that is why we give any claims reported all the prompt attention to the satisfaction of our affected policyholders.”
He explained that the company’s ability to settle claims to the tune of N566.65 million at a time the insurance business patronages were not impressive owing to the nation’s focus on the general electioneering activities clearly demonstrates the organisation’s financial strength to manage any size of risk brought to it by the insuring public at any time.
