INSURING OUR LAWYERS: NBA TO PARTNER WITH NHIS –
Press Statement by NBA President, Olumide Akpata

On the 3rd of February, 2021, I led a team on a courtesy visit to the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Prof Mohammed Sambo. The essence of the visit was to discuss the modalities for ensuring the registration of lawyers in the Scheme.

At the end of the visit, which was part of the efforts of the Nigerian Bar Association under my administration to improve the welfare and well-being of Nigerian lawyers, we agreed to set up a joint committee to work out the technical details of the health insurance scheme for lawyers and also discussed other areas of mutual interest.

We sincerely hope that extending the scheme to lawyers will drastically reduce the embarrassing situation where our lawyers have historically had to resort to GoFundMe and other public contributions to address their health challenges.
