The Managing Director of NEM Insurance Plc, Mr. Tope Smart, has said that insurance industry operators, need to do a lot more on increasing the level of awareness of Nigerians on insurance as well as on building public confidence on the industry.Smart, who stated this at a media briefing in Lagos said the awareness problem is so high in Nigeria that even the well educated citizens have no knowledge of what insurance can do for them.

He said: "We still need to do a lot more in terms of awareness.
...
Smart however said the industry's contribution to the GDP, seems so low because pension, which is part of insurance industry was taken away from the industry. "If you look at other market globally, pension is part of the insurance industry and if you add what they are doing now, it would have added to the contribution of the insurance industry. So we would have done more and our contribution to the GDP would have been more significant," he stated.
He said another problem of the industry is government's attitude, pointing out that the government needs to believe in the industry and contribute to its development. According to Smart, if you look at what obtains in other parts of the world where there are compulsory insurance and government creates an enabling environment where it ensures that people comply, they enforce the laws. He noted that in Nigeria, enforcement is the problem and without enforcement, premiums are lost to fake insurance.
