Wole Soyinka Lecture Series honours one of Nigeria and Africa’s outstanding literary icons and enduring social justice/human rights activist: A Nobel Prize Winner, Professor Wole Soyinka.

It aims to promote good governance, social justice and democratic ideals in Nigeria and beyond.

As the icon of the idea of pyratism and the radical actions that have consistently concretized its essence, the founding, in 1994, of an annual public lecture in honor of Professor Wole Soyinka is significant.

The issues addressed by the lectures are globally relevant to the sustenance of man and the continuity of his world. They depict the revolutionary fervor in us as individual and collective stakeholders in our communities.

A mix of activists, intellectuals and political leaders have graced the lecture series, in varying capacity. The themes and subject matters are iconic indexes of the rhetorics of revolutionary change and social justice.
