THE IMPACT OF LOCAL CONTENT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF INSURANCE BUSINESS IN NIGERIA

ABSTRACT

Prior to the introduction of the local content initiative, the rate of capital flight from the oil and gas sector was colossal. This trend was not encouraging for a nation that hopes to become one of the 20 leading economies in the world. Therefore in a bid to stem this trend, the Federal Government in 2007 introduced the Local content initiative.  This work therefore aims at finding the prospect for growth in the Insurance industry. Questionnaires and oral interviews were used in gathering information for this project work. Some insurance companies in Port Harcourt were visited in other to get information for this research project. The theoretical method used to select the sample size for this research work was TARO YAMANI; the population of the study was drawn from the branch of some insurance companies in Port Harcourt. The source of data were both primary and secondary data. Chi-square statistical method was used for data analysis. It was also used in testing the hypothesis of this work. It was found that the introduction of local content by the Federal Government will enhance the growth and development of insurance business in Nigeria. This has come to stay and will ensure capitalization in the insurance industry. It is recommended that Federal government should help in enhancing the operation of insurance business in Nigeria through regulation and implementation.
