The Nigeria National League and the Industrial General Insurance signed a N27 million insurance deal.
The Nigeria National League and the Industrial General Insurance, IGI, on Tuesday signed a three-year deal worth N27 million, to insure players and officials of the league.
It is the first time that Nigeria’s second-tier football club competition would have an official insurer.
“This is a ground-breaking event. We are delighted with this deal because the Nigeria National League had never had an official insurer, and for us to have such a mouth-watering agreement speaks volume of the confidence that Corporate Nigeria now has in the NNL, a direct result of the hard work, innovation and transparency that we have brought on board,” said Emeka Inyama, Chairman of the Nigeria National League.
Mr. Inyama signed the deal on behalf of the NNL while the Managing Director of IGI, Rotimi Fashola, signed on behalf of the insurance company.
