MONROVIA – The Director-General of the General Services Agency (GSA), Madam Mary Tarnyennoh Broh, has praised the management of the National Insurance Corporation of Liberia (NICOL) for becoming one of the most improved government agencies in the country, and emphasized the need for all agencies of government to get insured with NICOL.
Making the statement on Friday, October 7, 2022y when she served as keynote speaker at a graduation ceremony that NICOL held for nine of its insurance professionals who had undergone a rigorous one-month insurance training program, Madam Broh acknowledged that the rapid achievement and recruitment of young Liberians into insurance professionals for employment opportunities at NICOL was a new model approach in the Liberian society introduced by NICOL’s Managing Director Sam Mannah and his team.
Speaking on the theme: “Nation Building Through Excellent Service Delivery and Utmost Professionalism for a Better and Enhanced Business Culture In Liberia”, Broh acknowledged that NICOL was completely dead for several years prior to Mr. Sam Mannah becoming Managing Director, for which he has accordingly done “a great job in reviving the corporation to an appreciable status that requires every government agency and Ministry to be engaged with the corporation”.
Madam Broh went further to state her entity’s readiness to receiving insurers from NICOL, noting that the management team at NICOL, headed by Sam Mannah and his deputy Princeton Miller, has proven to be trusted and ready to serve the public’s interest through good and quality insurance policies and services in Liberia.
Addressing the second graduating class of nine insurance professionals, the GSA boss used the occasion to challenge the graduates to be vigilant in the discharge of their duties, and went further to caution them to exhibit a great deal of honesty and professionalism.
The GSA boss concluded by urging Liberians to do away with the old mentality of not believing in obtaining insurance, as insurance is a safety net that provides security, protection and peace of mind in case one gets involved in an accident or experiences damage to their property, noting that NICOL Insurance is an important service to Liberians and for Liberia’s development.
For his part, NICOL’s Managing Director Sam Mannah during his remarks said the nine graduates are the second batch of insurance professionals to be incorporated within the NICOL system.
He went further to express how thrilled he was to see his dream of nurturing and empowering young Liberians in a professional and service-oriented environment come to fruition, and expressed the desire to incorporate more young Liberians into the NICOL system as more resources become available.
Mr. Mannah disclosed that NICOL has been able to employ 17 young Liberians within the last six months, and intends to do more as the entity expands.
The graduation ceremony, which took place at the head office of the corporation located at the corners of Front and Buchanan Streets, was the second graduating class of insurance professionals within the last six months, after an initial eight persons graduated on April 29, 2022.
