Out Of 12m Vehicles In Nigeria, Only 2.5m Have Genuine Insurance by AutoJoshNG: 11:34am On Nov 08
Only 2.5m of 12m vehicles in Nigeria have genuine insurance. This is according to Cornerstone Insurance PLC.

They made this revelation during a campaign to sensitise the drivers on the need to acquire third-party insurance policy as well as expose its benefits to them.

The campaign by Cornerstone Insurance became necessary in order to break the ignorance among motorists on the necessity of obtaining genuine third party insurance policy as well as access its numerous benefits.

According to Pelumi Akindumusire, the Ikeja branch manager of Cornerstone Insurance plc, Ikeja Lagos, “out of the 12 million registered vehicles in Nigeria, only 2.5 million have genuine insurance cover”.

“It is not as if those motorists do not possess insurance certificate, but that, the policy they have is fake and that is why the Insurance industry has looked for a way to use the Nigeria Insurance Industry Database (NIID) to address the challenge,” Akindumusire said.

He also added that the industry also partners with the men of the Vehicle Inspection Services (VIS) and Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) to monitor fake insurance policy-holders.

For the 2.5million that have insurance policy, how many of them gets compensated when accidents occur? That's when stories will start pouring out from the insurance companies.

Statistically, these figures from Cornerstone Insurance is a BIG LIE.

The total number of vehicles owned by blue chip companies, those purchased under higher purchase or bank finance, those purchased brand new etc etc across 36 States will be more than 2.5m.

The stats is true.

If out of 12 million only 2.5 have insurance, that means out of 120million only 20.5 will have insurance do the math

Insurance companies pay claims. It is just that most people don't file for the 5k third party. . You can imagine free money they make yearly


I have claimed 80k repairs for a car I hit a while ago. I had to fix mine myself cos I had a 3rd party insurance

The economy is biting hard on households, and the response is cut all cuttables.
In Europe, insurance companies own and acquire banks and not the other way round as we have it here.

Problem is for us, we only get the insurance to avoid hassles from FRSC and VIO without knowing the real benefits. You’ll see motorists involved in a collision trading punches rather than getting insurance details.

Third Party works! You can claim up to 900k on repairs if you are involved in a collision with a third party insurance holder. 900k is the maximum on this kind of insurance. This is the least cover you can get and it costs 5k. You are better off buying it online from a reputable insurance company of your choice. You are not compelled to buy it from VIO!

Third party fire and theft gives you more cover and protects you from loss due to fire and theft.

Then you have comprehensive cover that covers loss to your car and damages to a third party.

You are better off approaching a broker directly than buying from VIO!
