African Students For Liberty (ASFL) is thrilled to announce its 2017 Regional Conferences between October and November 2017 with the theme “Creating Wealth through Free Markets” in Kenya, Nigeria, and Tanzania.
African Students For Liberty is a continent-wide organization that promotes the ideas of individual and economic freedom to students across Africa, with a membership base of over 6,000 students and over 200 trained leaders who commit to a year-long engagement.
ASFL has its presence in 22 African countries, thus making it the largest libertarian organization in Africa. Its mission is to identify, develop and support the next generation of African advocates for individual and economic freedom.
ASFL Regional Conferences are events held to introduce new students to the ideas of liberty and provide a forum in which students already dedicated to liberty can become effective leaders. They serve as a combination of pep rally, debate forum, lecture hall, strategy room, and networking session for students interested in the principles of human and economic freedom.
Speakers at our Regional Conference come from all walks of life but share an interest in promoting human and economic freedom.
At its West African Regional Conference which will take place from Friday, 27th of October to Saturday, the 28th of October at the Conference Centre Hall, University of Ibadan, Nigeria, participants will hear from top speakers in the freedom movement, network with other pro-liberty students, discover countless opportunities for jobs, internships, conferences and seminars, and meet with like minded people.
Among the speakers confirmed to be at this year’s West African Regional Conference include: Oluseun Onigbinde, co-founder of BudgIT, a civic organization that applies technology to intersect citizen engagement with institutional improvement; Olumide Makanjuola, the Executive Director of The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs), a non-governmental organization (NGO) that works towards protecting the rights of people with same sex attraction; Chika Oduah, award-winning Al-jazeera journalist who covers human rights, culture, conflict and development in sub-Saharan Africa; Timi Olagunju, a Mandela Washington Fellow and a technology lawyer with core capacity in open governance, communication, leadership management, and strategy; Chukwemeka Ezeugo, founder of African Christians For Liberty, among many others.
