Welcome to the Official Website of Stuttering Association of Nigeria


Welcome to the web site of the Stuttering Association of Nigeria (SAN). This is a non-commercial web site. Neither SAN nor its members receive revenues from the operation of this web site. The SAN website was established by Mr Adeyemi Akintunde.

After Mr Adeyemi Akintunde attended the first African Stuttering conference in Douala, Cameroon in October 2005, he sat down and thought of the establishment of SAN website. During the next couple of weeks, a working prototype of the website was created. Mr Akintunde placed the general information of aims, objectives and other contributions of SAN on the website for public access.The SAN web site has been up and running since November 2005 and is constantly being upgraded and updated. Adeyemi has maintained the site since then.

The objective of the SAN web site is to provide people who stutter, their family and friends, speech-language pathologists, academics, students and members of the general public with information on stuttering resources available both in Nigeria and abroad. In addition to providing information on stuttering from international sources, one of the principal mandates of the SAN web site is to feature Nigerian content.

We would like to inform all visitors that this is the first originally recognized arrangement for stuttering in Nigeria and we are duly registered with the corporate affairs commission Abuja which is the accrediting body for legalizing all associations in Nigeria.
There are lots of unregistered and pretentious stuttering in Nigeria, some of whom impersonate the stuttering association of Nigeria and are into credit card irregularities and other illegal activities. They use forgery of official specimen stationery, letterheads, stamps, seals and specimen signatures of the top officials and accountants in any establishment or organization to obtain account numbers, e.t.c.

22nd October, ISAD

Do you know that...
The President of ISA (Australia), Dr. Mark Irwin, the president of SCAC-Mr. Joseph Lukong (Cameroun), the Director of SAN (Nigeria) Mr. Adeyemi Akintunde. And Dr. Sami Awad Yasin (Sudan) at the just concluded first Africa Stuttering Conference held in Cameroun.
The population of Nigeria is estimated to about 150 million, and therefore, with our little research our conclusion will be Nigeria alone has more stutterers than the entire West Africa put together.
