Wale Ajetunmobi is the Editor of Africanliberty.org. He graduated from University of Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria and holds a Post-graduate Diploma in Journalism at the Nigerian Institute of Journalism, Lagos. He started his journalism career in 2010 as an intern with The Nation – one of Nigeria’s three widely read newspapers. He rose to become the Editor of CAMPUSLIFE – a student- and youth-segment of the newspaper. The platform offered him an opportunity to give a credible voice to over 300 student-journalists scattered across Nigerian universities and colleges every year. He has mentored a new generation of writers, who investigates and reports stories that challenge stereotypes and draw public attention to issues relating to youths and human rights. He has attended and spoken at several local and international youth conferences, including the World Cup challenge of ENACTUS – a global entrepreneurial contest held September 2017 in London, United Kingdom. He also attended Students and Young Professional African Liberty Academy (SYPALA) held in Kenya in 2013. He has been involved in spreading libertarian ideas across Nigerian campuses on platforms sponsored by Atlas Network. In 2014 when he met Alex McCobin, co-founder of SFL, in Nigeria, he was fascinated about the SFL and the organization’s plan to deepen ideas of liberty in Africa. Since then, he has been committed to driving conversations around the ideas of liberty and economic freedom.
