Nigeria’s foremost life insurance specialist, African Alliance Insurance plc keeps true to its purpose of protecting the future of every Nigerian by making financial contributions to the Nigerian Insurers Association (NIA) COVID-19 support fund.
The NIA COVID-19 support fund is an initiative of the Nigerian Insurers Association aimed at mitigating the further spread of the virus in Nigeria. The funds raised are to be used in acquiring and distributing protective gear to the public as well as to the healthcare workers who are at the frontline fighting against the COVID-19.
According to the company, “African Alliance is further pleased to support this laudable effort as the NIA announced that the funds raised have made possible a donation of N1m free life insurance cover to healthcare professionals taking care of those infected with the virus.”
Recall that African Alliance had earlier supported a food outreach to residents of Ikoyi-Obalende LCDA, its immediate community, in conjunction with Megalectrics Ltd, a media company based in Ikoyi and the LCDA. “We believe the government cannot do it alone, therefore it is our corporate responsibility to offer support and provide for the needs of those around us in these trying times. After all, we promised to be with them for life and that means through thick and thin,” Bankole Banjo, the firm’s Brand, Media and Communications Manager said.
Incorporated in 1960, African Alliance Insurance is a publicly quoted life insurance company operating out of Lagos as well as in 18 branches nationwide. Last month, the firm activated its business continuity plan which implemented specific health measures to curb the spread of the Corona Virus. This was done to ensure the safety of its customers, as well as its employees who are now working remotely.
