The LSESU Nigerian Society in Conversation Series:

The London School of Economics is renowned across Europe and the world for its comprehensive public lectures, yet there is a substantial lack of Nigerian voices represented in this series.

The purpose of this event is to fill the gap and give the student body and members of the public access to Nigerian stories and perspectives through guest lectures and live interviews with eminent influencers.
