The Chairman said the Lawyers Health Insurance Scheme has positively impacted lawyers immeasurably. He encourage more lawyers to take advantage of the Scheme while stressing that “health is wealth”.

The NBA Abuja Branch Lawyers Health Insurance Plan has changed the narrative surrounding the health and welfare of lawyers in Nigeria, thanks to the laudable initiative of the Ezenwa Anumnu-led EXCO which was well sustained by the Folarin Aluko-led EXCO.
