According to the senator, the retreat took a critical look at the role of insurance in the growth and development of the economy, the poor state of the insurance industry in Nigeria and how to restore the industry to its pride of place.

In his intervention at the retreat, Senator Uba Sani decried the long neglect of the insurance industry despite its importance, lack of requisite skills by personnel in the insurance industry, and the outdated and ineffective regulatory framework.
