GUINEA Insurance Plc has resolved to support growth and development in the insurance industry. To this end, the company strategically partnered with the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) to ensure that the recently held street presence exercise in Lagos was seamless and successful.
The company hosted the pre-walk reception of the institute’s members at its corporate head-office at Jibowu, where the pre-walk aerobic exercise and health tips were conducted shortly before the street presence exercise commenced to the destination point – Niger Insurance Plc House, Anthony Bus-stop last Saturday.
According to the CIIN, the urban lifestyles of members dissuade them from engaging in any form of physical exercise which, in effect, has triggered poor health and low quality of life hence, the need to awaken interests and participation.
Acting Managing Director/CEO, of Guinea Insurance, Mrs. Isioma Omoshie-Okokuku, said the company is commitment to rekindling the true spirit of sportsmanship and fostering national unity through interactions among industry players and analysts.
“We are proud to have partnered with the Institute especially as the benefits of the street presence exercise extend far beyond weight management to improved health conditions and overall quality of life,” she said.
Lady Isioma Chukwuma, President of CIIN, while addressing participants at Guinea Insurance Head-office premises, lauded them for their resilience and utmost commitment to move the industry forward despite the unscheduled cancellation of the event.
