According to him, this shows that it has so much confidence in the brokers and as such deserves their patronage.
“I thank Prudential Zenith Life Insurance for hosting this event, and by so doing reaffirming itself as one of the most insurance broker’s friendly underwriter in Nigeria,” he said.
The president appreciated his colleagues, for their staunch support since the commencement of his tenure, two years ago, which would end in October.
Edu noted that with the support of the members, the council has been raised to an enviable height.
He said: “This administration would continue to adhere to the actualisation of the thrust of office tagged: ‘Broker Centrism’, without leaving a stone unturned until the very last day.
“This is because, I am persuaded beyond reasonable doubts that the herculean task of ensuring that the Nigerian insurance industry and broking profession becomes enviable, is realisable.
Edu congratulated all the newly appointed ministers by President Bola Tinubu and specifically Mr Gboyega Oyetola, who is a fellow of the council, for being appointed as the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy.
He expressed optimism that Oyetola would bring his administrative and leadership dexterity to bear on charting an enduring path for the new ministry.
According to him, with this appointment, there is hope in the horizon that the economic thrust of the Federal Government would be on stream.
Edu also thanked Mr Bayo Fasoranti, Secretary, Nigeria Red Cross, Ogun State Chapter and Mr Kehinde Suraju, Divisional Coordinator, Ado-odo/Ota division of Red Cross for taking the brokers through: ‘Essential First Aid Tips for Emergencies’.
He said, the choice of the topic and the speakers were apt, because of the relevance of the topic to the business of risk management.
According to president, such rescue tips is important, as many Nigerians who died of cardiac arrest and similar health issues in our society could have been saved if we are all well informed.
