NAICOM Orders African Alliance Insurance to Fulfill Obligations or Face Regulatory Action

The National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) has ordered African Alliance Insurance Plc to immediately fulfill its contractual obligations to its customers or face regulatory action.

A statement from NAICOM reads below:

Following increased complaints by annuitants and insurance claimants against African Alliance Insurance Plc in respect of the company’s delay and/or inability to fulfill its obligations, the National Insurance Commission has given marching orders to the company to resolve and ensure settlement of outstanding claims.

The Commission had summoned the Board of African Alliance Insurance Plc to its headquarters in Abuja recently and ordered the company to settle outstanding payments due to annuitants and claimants. In addition, the Board of Directors of the company was directed to immediately submit a turnaround plan for addressing the challenges currently faced by the company which necessitated putting the company under the Commission’s Regulatory Order. Given the heightened challenges, the company should expect further actions if they fail to address the issues within the timeline the company has been given.

The Board assured the Commission that they would act on all the resolutions reached at the meeting.

The Commission wishes to restate its determination to ensure fair treatment of all stakeholders, enforce professionalism and good conduct amongst its licensed operators.
