With payment of N2, 500.00 you can insure your phone screen up to the value of N50,000.00.

This is coming from the Axa Mansard Insurance and Slot Systems Limited partnership aimed to provide insurance cover for smartphones screens.

The product, which was launched recently as Axa Mansard’s head office in Lagos, was a novel initiative for the two companies to ensure that their customers do not bear the entire financial burden in the event of phone screen damage.

At the launch, Rashidat Adebisi, country manager, Axa Mansard, said that the partnership with Slot became imperative given the economic situation in the country and the firm’s desire to make life easier for their numerous customers.

“We launch this product to ensure that Nigerians are connected. The downside of an unexpected and unforeseen situation; when you cannot connect to your family and friends, to your money or the source of your money, I’m sure you know it will be a source of worry, which can best be imagined” she stated.

On his part, Nnamdi Ezeigbo, chief executive officer of Slot Systems, affirmed that the idea is a dream come true in line with its plans for customers in 2024. He noted that as a customer-centric brand, the partnership was a testament to Slot’s forward-looking, resilient and persevering spirit.

“This idea is in alignment of our core values and one of the things that make Axa Mansard a great partner is their global presence, their strong brand, and strong customer base. So all this endeared us to them. Meanwhile, we have plans to take Slot to other African countries, so our spread is not limited to Nigeria alone.”
