A visionary entrepreneur with remarkable patriotic zeal, Dr. Olowude was a self- driven achiever and business leader, who built a virile conglomerate with interests in insurance, banking, health management services, construction, and telecommunications services. He was a frontline member of Corporate Nigeria and the immediate past Chairman of the Nigerian Insurers Association (NIA). IGI Plc, which he founded in 1992, is a leading insurance company in Nigeria underwriting all classes of insurance business.
IGI is also present in Uganda, Rwanda and The Gambia, with a representative office in London. The Board and Management assure all stakeholders that we shall preserve the IGI legacy and vigorously pursue the dream and vision of the departed founder. Dr. Olowude died on Saturday, 27th September, 2014 in a hospital in the United States, after a brief illness. He was aged 63. Condolence registers have been opened at his private residences, IGI Head Office in Lagos as well as other branches and subsidiaries inside and outside Nigeria. May God comfort the entire Olowude family and grant the soul of our departed leader and mentor perfect repose. BOARD, MANAGEMENT AND STAFF.
