SCIB Nigeria & Company Limited, an insurance broking firm, is celebrating its 40th anniversary and has projected becoming number one broker in Africa.
The firm is also targeting regional expansion in Africa; building a magnificent corporate edifice in Lagos; engaging in intermediating insurance services through robust information and technology platforms and more.
Founder and Chairman of the broking firm, Mr. Olola Ogunlana, at the anniversary celebration in Lagos, noted that to inspire the company at its formation, he used the watchword from a nursery rhyme, which had guided his life since 1938, when he was enrolled in St. Paul’s Breadfruit Primary School, Lagos.
He said the simple but inspiring rhyme provided the core value on which Scib Nigeria & Company was built and nurtured.
Managing Director of the firm, Shola Tinubu, said the 40 years anniversary celebration affords the company a unique opportunity to give special recognition to the founder, stressing that the firm which started with just one employee, has grown to an employer of over 120 people and has become a globally acclaimed professional institution.
