The Nigerian Insurers Association has denied a report that the Lagos State Government is not frustrating insurance monitoring in the state.
A statement on Sunday by the NIA said the association was engaging stakeholders in the state including the Motor Vehicle Administration Agency, the Vehicle Inspection Office, and the Ministry of Transportation with a view to inaugurating the Nigerian Insurance Industry database monitoring device in the state.
“We must restate that the Commissioner for Transportation, Kayode Opeifa, has been most supportive of our efforts to see that the device is launched in the state. To turn around and accuse the state government of frustrating the launch of the device will be unfair,” it stated.
The NIA said many senior officials of the state government had shown support for the project and were fully convinced that it remained a veritable mechanism for wiping out fake insurance certificates.
“The association views the state government as a critical stakeholder in the battle against fake motor insurance certificates and will continue to seek the support and collaboration of the state to win the war,” it stated.
