A List of Professional Bodies/Associations in Nigeria » January 20th, 2011, 10:12 am by BestNaija (m)

For regulatory purposes, there are many professional institutions in Nigeria. They regulate different professions ranging from accounting to engineering. Some of these institutions also administers certification examinations to members depending on their charter. Passing these exams are seen as symbol of professional accomplishments and lend credence to the competence of the individuals who have passed the examinations. The institutions also set ethical standards and standard of professional conducts for members including benchmarks and best practices. They are quasi regulatory agencies and can administer disciplinary actions for members’ misconducts. The list below represent some but not all such bodies in Nigeria. Please add more to these, and point out necessary corrections. :mrgreen:
