The Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria, CIIN, has reminded members of the need to consider professionalism and ethics in all their engagements.

President and Chairman in Council of the Institute Muftau Oyegunle made the charge during Fellows Hangout in Lagos.

Oyegunle, observed that “Indeed, every industry today has suffered from variety of challenges especially as regards professionalism and ethical standards and this has affected in so many ways the efficiency of process, reducing the standards of competency in the long run.”

He however, reminded members that as custodians of professionalism and ethical standards, they should strive together to push the boundaries of excellency in their various organisations.

The Chairman implored them to use the avenue to come up with actionable plans, processes and procedures to encourage professionalism and ethics so as to raise high the bar of capabilities in our various sphere of influence.

“One decision at a time, one improved process at a time and in the next few years, we will celebrate an industry with an outstanding level of professional competence.” he said.

Oyegunle, stressed that the second edition of the ‘Fellows Hangout’, a forum organised by the Institute is to enable us socialise, share professional insights and experiences that will drive the Institute and the industry forward.

“You will agree with me that every fellow seated here has had numerous levels of experiences and understandings into the different industry problems and challenges, trends as well as viable solutions to crucial matters in the sector.

“This is why it is expedient that there is always an opportunity for us to converge like this to deliberate on issues affecting the Institute so as to drive the Institute forward.”

Oyegunle, noted that the theme of the programme which is ‘Contributions of Fellows to the Growth of the Institute’ is very topical and needed to gauge its efforts to the development of the Institute.
