The National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) and the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC) have set up a joint committee to enforce compliance by building developers and Occupiers of Public Buildings with regard to sections 64 & 65 of the Insurance Act 2003.
The existing six compulsory insurance covers include third-party motor insurance, employer’s liability/ workmen’s compensation insurance, group life assurance, health care professional indemnity insurance, and occupiers’ liability insurance or insurance of public buildings.
