Buhari names Kari as Nigeria`s new insurance commissioner

 

Nigeria`s President Muhmmadu Buhari has appointed Alhaji Mohammed Kari as the new commissioner for insurance.

Kari, who started his career with Royal Exchange Assurance in 1979, going by the appointment, would also serve as the Chief Executive of the National Insurance Commission, the Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Mr. Femi Adesina, said on Friday.

Adesina, who posted this on his Facebook, said the president also renewed the appointment of Mr. Joshua Okpo as the Rector of the Maritime Academy, Oron, Akwa Ibom State.

The rector who got Buhari`s nod for the second final term would be in the saddle in the next four years, the special adviser said.

Adesina said: “President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Alhaji Mohammed Kari as the Commissioner for Insurance and Chief Executive of the National Insurance Commission.”
According to the spokesman for the president, Kari’s appointment, which is for a term of four years in the first instance, took effect from today.

Adesina said the commissioner had acquired experience over the years having worked with Yankari InsuranceCompany, where he left in 1989 to become the Executive Director of Niger Insurance Plc.
The special adviser said: “In January 1992, he was appointed Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria Reinsurance Corporation, a position he held until March 1993 when he was appointed Managing Director of NICON Insurance Corporation.” 

Adesina also said that the NIC boss was in the saddle until January 2000 when he resigned, adding that he eventually returned to insurance management in 2007 as the Managing Director/Chief Executive of Unity Kapital Assurance Plc, where he served for four years.

Until his appointment, according to the special adviser, Kari, a Chartered Insurer and Professional IT Consultant, was the Deputy Commissioner (Technical) in the NIC.
