Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria (APBN) is set up to speak with one voice on behalf of its member-bodies while at the same time giving professional and proper technical advice to Government on matters affecting the professionals and their practices. It is the apex organization comprising, for now, twenty-seven (27) professional bodies, whose main objective is to provide Nigeria with an effective forum for transmitting to Government the aggregate views of the nation’s Professionals on matters of public interest which they are competent to express informed and enlightened views. APBN was given official Federal Government recognition as the third leg of the tripod of the Organized Private Sector (OPS) in January, 1992. however, the activities of APBN started far back in 1983. APBN is actively involved in promoting and enhancing the status of professional bodies by ensuring maximal utilization of the talent, skills and knowledge of the Nigerian professionals. APBN believes that human welfare problems are multi-dimensional in nature and for this reason it employs a multidisciplinary approach to problem solving. In this regard, APBN discourages traditional professional prejudice, intolerance, and self-centeredness. APBN believes that, in the interest of the wider society, no profession needs to operate in isolation of the other professional bodies and by that very fact advocates frequent interfacing and cooperation amongst professions.
