The Ogun State Government has begun a new ‘Welfare Insurance Policy’ aimed at creating opportunities for its workers to save for the rainy day, and has encouraged transport unions operating in the state to embrace the new development.
The General Manager of the Ogun State Parks and Garages Development Board, Alhaji Ayo Ogunsolu, advised in Abeokuta, during a one-day workshop organised in collaboration with Capital Express Assurance Limited.
Ogunsolu, who was represented by the Director of Administration and Supplies, Mr. Lola Sotola, said the insurance policy was essential as it created an avenue for them to receive instant response in times of need, adding that it was an opportunity to save for the future.
According to the National Head of Marketing, Capital Express Assurance Limited, Mr. Mathew Ogwezhi, interested clients would pay N60 on a daily basis. He said the money would enable the company to insure their clients against circumstances beyond their control.
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the Welfare Insurance Policy was a step in the right direction.
He advised transport unions in the state to eject unscrupulous elements in their midst, adding that commercial motorcyclists who were fond of wearing earrings and dreadlocks, posed threats to the security of the state.
