Celebrating 20 years of Democracy with Daniel Ogoloma and Oxford University Fellows

Daniel Ogoloma the 24 Year Old Pastor and political activist joined the Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, and the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, Dele Momodu and many others at an International Conference celebrating ‘20 Years of Democracy in Nigeria : 1999-2019’ at Oxford University, which took place on Friday, December 6, 2019.

The one-day Conference was hosted by Wale Adebanwi at the African Studies Centre, University of Oxford.

The Oxford Africa Conference is the leading interdisciplinary conference covering issues and topics on Africa. The event is held yearly at Oxford to exhort knowledge from leaders across Nigeria.

Ogoloma also featured as a speaker at the Financial Times Africa Summit featuring The Luxury Network in London, October 2019.

The theme of the event was focused on the future of Nigeria’s economy.

In his submission, Ogoloma began to paint a picture of the role played by the youth of today. He emphasised that whilst in theory they are not too young to run, in practice, the Nigerian youths are far too financially unstable for this and are unable to mobilise funds without failing in the hands of political Godfathers.

He carried on by drawing the attention to their mandate to create ideas and be innovative in generating opportunities across Nigeria.

“Nigeria’s population is estimated to be over 230 million people. We must be intentional in raising awareness for the next generation, my generation to know that their talent is a currency and it can be spent globally with the right platform and support,” Ogoloma stated.

“I am looking forward to building more partnerships in Nigeria with those who share the same passion as me,” he also added.

Daniel Ogoloma is a campaign guru; one of his most recent campaigns include assisting British politician, Rory Stewart an ex Minister for international development. Stewart recently resigned from the Conservative party and his seat as an MP to contest for The 2020 London Mayoral elections as an independent.

Ogoloma states “The campaign is going great so far; there has been great citizen participation through the London Speaks project. Rory believes in humanity and leadership and is keen on using London’s business links to develop jobs in countries like Nigeria.
