The National Insurance Commission currently runs motor third party and private commercial property insurance products.

Commissioner of Insurance at the National Insurance Commission, Justice Yaw Ofori said the move is to help citizens have enough insurance policies protecting them.

“We are looking at group life even residential facilities, if you have a commercial facility that is being rented what we call passenger house, because the landowners should have insurance the tenant should also have insurance and other policies like professional indemnity must be made compulsory for professionals to have some indemnity policies so if a professional gives you can advise and things go wrong at least you can fall on an insurance.”
