The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Kaduna Branch has joined the league of digital branches with the introduction of online payment system for its Branch and Welfare Dues. Following in the footsteps of the national body, the branch has deployed the Paystack payment portal for payment of its dues.

In a press release signed by the Branch Financial Secretary, Diane Odey, it was stated that Branch members can now pay for their Branch Dues using the web link, while the Welfare Dues can be paid via

While the Branch would adopt the hybrid method by also receiving payment via the Branch Bank Account, Odey further explained that by 2023, payment for the Branch & Welfare Dues will be done only via the online platform.

Speaking on the development, the Branch Chairman, Mr. M. T. Mohammed stated that “NBA Kaduna is one of the few Branches of the NBA that has fully deployed online payment services for its members. We have used it to collect payments for our Law Week and Bar Dinner in the past few years. We are encouraged to continue to use the platform provided by Paystack to ease the payment of Branch and Welfare Dues for our Members.”

According to a statement by the Branch Publicity Secretary, Oguguo Anoruo-Enujekwu, the Chairman noted that online payment also enables the branch to keep proper and accurate records of its financial members. He urged members to take advantage of the online payment method.

It is recalled that the NBA National Executive Committee (NBA-NEC) had at its latest quarterly meeting approved exclusive payment of Bar Practising Fee (BPF) through the Paystack portal.
