About the Nigeria-Britain Association (N-BA)
The Nigeria-Britain Association (“N-BA”) was formed in Nigeria in 1969 as a corresponding association now known as the British-Nigeria Education Trust, which is based in the UK and has H.R.H. Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh as its patron. In 2009, the association was incorporated as a trust, a non-profit making organisation dedicated to developing relationships between individuals and organizations in Nigeria, Britain and the Commonwealth resident in Nigeria.
The Association also organises social, cultural and business activities designed to bring together friends and associates from Nigeria, Britain and the Commonwealth with a collective vision to impact positively on the community.
