Again, the Coordinator, the legal, and technical advisers of the club also mentioned that the OHADA club NPB is meant for all students of NPB, given the fact that we, as professionals are supposed to be armed with this law, as it governs our business society today. Furthermore, time was given to some members of the different department to say why the are members of this club; ENGINEER: As an engineer, it is of prime importance to know the OHADA laws governing intellectual property rights like patents, in order to protect my inventions from pirate. BANKER: We need to know, as bankers, the procedures governing loan delinquency and debt recovery which is a banker worm in most financial institutions. These explain my membership. LAWYER: I am a lawyer, it is of absolute importance to have an insight of all the legal systems of the world especially OHADA uniform acts which are now cutting across the African society. MANAGEMENT: A manager is a jack of all trade, to effectively manage my company I must know all the OHADA uniform acts pertaining to marketing, banking and finance, insurance, accounting, and general commercial law. INSURANCE: It is imperative as an insurer to master the OHADA laws pertaining to the formation and termination of insurance contracts. MARKETER: As marketers, we must remember to practice the OHADA laws touching the rights to fair adverting, the right to proper labeling and packaging, the right to fair pricing and the need for consumer protection. ACCOUNTANT: OHADA has laid down a harmonized accounting system which can help us to keep our record in a simple, clear and understandable manner.
