“I want to state here that Osun State government is one of the few states that comply with the compulsory group life insurance for employees as provided under the Pension Reform Act 2014.

“Every individual or business is exposed to different risks like loss of life, loss job, injury, fire damage etc. I don’t see any reason why a business owner that has his/her buildings and stocks damaged by fire will continue to rely on government financial support for succor instead of seeking for compensation under his/her fire insurance policy

“The age long story that insurance companies do not settle claims is nothing but apparent falsehood. I charge anyone here that has his/her genuine insurance claim turned down in the recent past to meet me or any members of our Council for assistance. It’s interesting to note that many insurance companies are paying claims within 72 hours after complete documentation of the claim.

“As none will like to go to court without engaging the services of a legal practitioner, it is not advisable to buy insurance policy without the services of a registered insurance broker. The beauty of it is that engaging an insurance broker doesn’t increase the cost of your insurance the services offered by an insurance broker is free to the insured”.

“When breadwinners die, if they take life insurance, life can continue without them, children will continue to go to school, we can reduce the number of out of school children, and the number of beggars in the system.

“When businesses breakdown due to loss, we have policies insurance that can continue to put the business in place.” he added
