Ijaw professional Association (IPA) is made up of professionals in all works of life that originates from the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. It’s an association directed towards the empowerment and promotion of the welfare needs of its members and by extension the Ijaw nation. Ijaw Professionals Association is duly registered and welcomes all professionals from the Ijaw ethnic nationality. It is a platform established to create an enabling environment for members to exchange ideas, information, and experience. It is neither partisan nor political. The Ijaw professional association started out in 2011 in which from inception till date various initiatives such as the distribution of relief materials to three states during the 2012 flood disaster, appreciable support provided to individuals, and groups (especially youth empowerment) have been in place to empower the Ijaw ethnic group.
In carrying out the mission and goals of this association, we intend to reach out to as many professionals of the Ijaw ethnic nationality as possible through established chapters that cut across all regions.
