#EndSARS: Coronation Insurance Promises to Assuage Losses
By Adedapo Adesanya
Coronation Insurance Plc, formerly Wapic Insurance Plc, has reassured the public of its readiness to cover damages that arose from violent disruptions to lives and properties in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests in the country.
In a press statement, the Chief Executive Officer of the underwriter, Mrs Yinka Adekoya, noted that it had “observed the recent tragic events unfolding in Nigeria. We support the right to non-violent protest, but deplore the unnecessary loss of human lives.”
She declared that following the recent monumental loss of human life and damage to property and assets across the nation, it has shifted its highest gear to get customers the most appropriate help as quickly as possible at this time of need.
“We believe that insurance companies must ensure their clients do not have to wait for assistance after a disaster occurs by proactively collating information of damage and losses as well as responding to claims with speed and precision.
“We are well aware that our customers are dealing with numerous difficulties at this time and the last thing they want is a painful and challenging claims process.
“We want our customers to return to their normal way of life as soon as possible and have put in place a claims response platform for real-time communication and easy sharing of loss evidence to fast-track claims processing,” she said.
Mrs Adekoya noted that the insurer’s emergency payment methods have been made available to assist and relieve immediate spending pressures that will help them get back on their feet within the quickest period of time.
“Please use our dedicated helplines for emergencies and you can also ask to speak to one of our experts for advice and assistance on what to do next. Our channels are available 24/7 so that you can make enquiries and report claims seamlessly. We encourage you to use them to minimise physical visits,” she said.
