Organisers of the Okpekpe international 10km road race have announced award-winning STACO Insurance plc as the official insurer of the only IAAF silver label road race in Nigeria nay West Africa.
Zack Amodu,the director of organisation for the race revealed that STACO will provide insurance cover for the race.
‘’We have subscribed to a third party liability insurance policy to cover the risks for which we may be held liable, including any accident which might occur to athletes and officials,’said Amodu adding that the choice of STACO was based on the company’s track record.
‘This is one of the conditions we have to fulfil before we can stage an IAAF label road race. On our part we have always subscribed to a third party insurance policy for the race since the inaugural edition in 2013. We understand the importance of insurance in the organisation of a race as big as the Okpekpe 10km event and that is why we have gone for an Insurance company owned by Nigerians who have distinguished themselves in their various business endeavours and manned by seasoned professionals who have proven integrity in the Nigerian Insurance Industry,’he said.
