The President Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) Oyo State chapter, Falade Olugbenga Adedayo has charged members of the institute to ensure they keep fit by exercising their body, noting that such is even a certificate to insure one’s life.
Falade stated this at the weekend during the annual Insurance fitness walk which took place in Ibadan. The road walk kicked off around 8:25am, with members of the isntitute passing through Mokola round about, Queen Cinema, Dugbe, J.Allen, Oke-Ado, and ends around 10:14am at the CIIN, Oke-Ado, Molete, with aerobics.
CIIN boss said the institute do organise the fitness walk for its members once in a year to ensure that they are fitter, “as helath is wealth they say.”
According to him, “we do this once in a year and we replicate exactly what the headquarters of CIIN is doing. Insurance is full of activities, ups and down, running after businesses on the road and always busy. That is why we deem it very important once in a year to bring our members out to exercise and relax and strecth our body system.
“It is good to allow our body and system experience such warm walk, especially for some of us who might not have the experience of going to gyms but have been busy throughout the year.
“The result of exercise is that any time you go out, you’re loosing all the stiff bones and in return you are healthier. So we are telling our people that aside from running after businesses all the time, there is time to look after one’s health,” Falade said.
The insurance boss then urged members of the public to ensure that they insure themselves, property among others things worth keeping insured. He noted that “once you are insured, you are secured as insurance practitioners are ready to provide financial support in case there is loss.
“Business that is destroyed, financial support in there to start again without huge feeling. The wise man that built his house on the solid rock is that member of the public that buys into insurance, wise man will buy into insurance”.
