Olumayowa Okdediran is a committed advocate of liberty. In 2010, he came across the works of Frederic Bastiat, Bruno Leoni and Ludwig von Mises. These compelling arguments, especially of Bastiat, against protectionism provided Olumayowa with an appetite for the study of the ideas that lead to a free society. In 2010, he co-founded the African Liberty Students’ Organization (ALSO), served as the vice president for strategy at the first ALSO chapter in his school and has been instrumental in the establishment of several ALSO chapters across Africa. In 2011 he became ALSO Outreach Assistant responsible for ALSO’s expansion in English-speaking African countries. He sits on the international Executive board of Students for Liberty and directs Students for Liberty’s efforts in Africa. He is a contributing author in Why Liberty.
