List of Professional Bodies in Nigeria

In one’s career, it is very important to be a member of a professional body. An Accountant who is not Chartered is not honoured equally like a Chartered Accountant. What makes the difference is that a Chartered Accountant is a registered member of Institute of Chartered Accountant of Nigeria, ICAN. Due to this crucial point, I had to collate the list of professional bodies in Nigeria one can register

  6. Dumbili Tony says:

    How about The Institute of Data Processing Management Of Nigeria, Is it not a Professional Body in Nigeria?

  7. Dumbili Tony says:
  8. The management of these professional institutions should make it possible to update their memberships with the Federal Ministry of Education, as to enable their graduates gain employment in Nigeria labour market. As most of the graduates from these professional bodies always subjected with questions on the legitimacy of the institutions they attended.

  9. You tried your best, is inculcating, you can still do more research and then continue from where you stop.
