On Students For Liberty: Since my sophomore year when I hosted the Keynes/Hayek Debate, the need to open opportunities to younger generations as a libertarian has led me join SFL and I have since gained a lot of experiences in professional communication ethics, leadership and hosting several successful events, seminars and conferences across Nigeria including the 2019 Nigerian Leadership Forum and West African Regional Conference in Ibadan. It’s both fun and worthwhile advocating for individualism and freer society at SFL and for me, this is the best place to be as a global libertarian leader!
