About Us

Established in 2012, TPL is a pioneer insurance sector-specific NGO committed to improving insurance culture in Nigeria.

Our Story

Transparent Protection Limited/Gte (TPL) was founded with a clear mission: to bridge the gap between the potential of Nigeria’s insurance industry and its current reality. Despite a population of over 200 million, less than one percent hold insurance policies, highlighting a significant untapped market. We recognized this disparity and embarked on a journey to promote mass patronage of insurance products while upholding the highest ethical standards.

We are a membership based, insurance sector-specific non-government organisation in Nigeria. TPL was established in 2012 with the aim of helping to address the complex issues of insurance sector underdevelopment in Nigeria.

As a system support organization, TPL seeks to proactively assist both the insurer and insured to more easily understand their rights and obligations in relation to insurance contract, with the objective of protecting the interests of its members and the insuring public.

Over the last twelve years, TPL has been in the forefront in demanding for transparency amongst insurance operators and holding the regulators properly accountable. TPL has been undertaking public interest litigation and monitoring policy making for deepening transparency and accountability in the insurance industry.

TPL is currently mobilizing the insuring public at the grassroots for massive patronage of insurance products and timely settlement of genuine claims. Our members are freely assisted through pre-insurance contract advisory consultations and guidance for making claims.

Our Vision

Our vision is to emerge as the preeminent non-governmental organization focused on the insurance sector, spearheading comprehensive development initiatives across Africa.
