The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has called for the decentralisation of insurance premium among the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
Mustapha made the call when the governing board of the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) visited him in Abuja.
The SGF, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the General Services Office (GSO), Dr. Maurice Mbaeri, said there should be an increase in the allocation for insuring public assets.
He urged NAICOM to “write for the decentralisation of insurance premium among the MDAs”. Learning that the premium to be paid for insuring public assets was centralised in the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoS),
Mbaeri said: “There is no way the HoS alone can cover insurance premium for all the MDAs.”
