One of the beneficiaries, Owolabi, expressed appreciation to Airtel Nigeria for creating a reliable and affordable insurance policy for customers.

Airtel in collaboration with two prominent insurance providers, MicroEnsure and Cornerstone Insurance plc., had launched the insurance product in August.
