Ojemudia, who was represented by the company’s Head of Marketing, Mr. Emmanuel Eburajolo, at the AGM, stated that, “Covid-19 came unexpectedly, with a lot of challenges and many companies were caught unaware. However, in African Alliance, the impact was minimal because we already had a Business Continuity Management process in place, so, the company was prepared.
“We had a process that was digitally enabled and this aided the smooth continuation of our business and services with customers even when some companies were still grappling with the situation and trying to find their feet.”
She, however, urged the media to collaborate with the insurance industry for enhanced insurance awareness in Nigeria.
