Biafra Actualization Forum (BAF) Membership Application

1. Application Fees

We, the BAF Membership Committee, believe (and experience demonstrates) that persons willing to pay fees to apply for membership to an organization are serious about belonging to the organization. Not only that, such members are prepared to participate and work hard to achieve the organization’s goals. They also feel morally obligated and empowered to focus and, when called for, refocus the organization itself on its stated goal.

We have picked 20.00 in any Western Currency denomination such as US Dollar, Canadian Dollar, Euro, Pounds; and 2000.00 in Naira. This is the lowest amount for which the technicalities involved in remitting and accounting for the money does not cost more than the original remittance itself.  In short, we have picked the lowest most practicable amount.   For that matter, any member moved to pay more because of these considerations is quite welcome to do so. BAF Application Fee is non-refundable.

Your application for BAF membership will not be processed without the receipt of the application Fee and or the proof of payment.
