CIIN emphasizes the healthy benefits of fitness exercise
The Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) has emphasized the health benefits of regular physical exercise, urging insurers to make it a daily routine to keep their bodies and hearts in good shape.
Over the weekend, the institute held a fitness and health program at Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, where insurance practitioners were present to participate in the exercise.
Speaking to reporters shortly after the program, CIIN President Sir. Muftau Oyegunle said the most important wealth insurers need is their health because exercise keeps people healthy.
According to him, “It is only when you are in good health that you can continue with your daily needs. We must be in good health to meet our basic needs. I’m glad we had a great time today and for those who attended today’s event we added a day to their lives.
Stating that the COVID-19 pandemic limited the event to the stadium, which was contrary to the previously held event where practitioners marched on the road and engaged in insurance awareness, he encouraged the practitioners and the public to cultivate a healthy lifestyle because it is also good for their health.
Speaking also, the institute’s general director, Mrs. Abimbola Tiamiyu appreciated all the operators and other participants present at the event, promising that the institute is working on the upcoming organization of its annual picnic, all the more that more and more people are being vaccinated; and that the government continues to lift the ban on public gatherings and other related activities.
