Insurer provides cover for Aba tricycle riders

- By Bankole Orimisan

IDENTIFYIN­G the need to diversify insurance products to meet the needs of every Nigerian will help to deepen insurance penetratio­n, industry experts have said.

The Managing Director, Universal Insurance Plc, Ben Ujoatuonu, in an interview with The Guardian at the weekend, spoke on the unveiling of an insurance product called Keke Pass in Umuahia and Aba for the Tricycle Owners Associatio­n of Nigeria ( TOAN) and Aba Tricycle Riders Integrated Welfare Associatio­n ( ATRIWA) in Abia State.

Ujoatuonu said the product became necessary because convention­al insurance products do not consider the peculiarit­ies of ordinary Nigerians.

According to him, Keke Pass is a tricycle passenger policy safety scheme intended to provide personal accident cover for the riders and their passengers in terms of injury, death and third- party liability.
