Freethinking Hero: Leo Igwe

Freethinking Hero: Leo Igwe November 7, 2020

Nigeria based Leo Igwe has a fantastic history as a campaigner for rationalism and we are very proud to announce that he has agreed to join Atheist Alliance International’s Advisory Council.

Born in a village with no electricity or running water, Leo has made enormous strides through his own efforts.

His early education was in a seminary but he realised a priest’s life was not for him. This was followed by academic success: a degree, a PhD, a research fellowship with the James Randi Foundation, an appearance on a BBC documentary, a TED talk, the list goes on.
