He stated this while addressing participants at the annual insurance family picnic recently held at the Eleko Beach in Lagos.
Efekoha, stated that the next generation has a critical role to play in the development and growth of the insurance industry, saying a good number of the products and services being offered by insurance companies today are being tailored to fit into the lifestyle of the millennial.
He opined that for them to have true knowledge of the key role insurance play in the society, it is only fitting that they learn insurance early so as to be able to equally and efficiently propagate its benefits passionately.
He commended the institute and committee responsible for putting together the event, saying recreation is a key driver of optimum performance.
“Being relaxed, at peace with yourself, confident and being emotionally neutral, are the keys to successful performance in almost everything. I urge you to ingrain some form of recreational activity into your everyday lives. Make it a necessity, not an objective,” Efekoha said.
Also, the Director General of the institute, Mr. Richard Borokini, stated that the event was one of the many contributions of the institute to the growth of the insurance industry in Nigeria.
