Japheth Omojuwa talks about how he is trying to make Africans more aware of their human rights and the dangers of authoritarian governments. He then explains how he and others are using social media to achieve that goal, and how the internet and digital communication has revolutionized the ability to spread sound political and economic ideas in Africa. Japheth also tells us which books influenced his own political thinking and made him a market liberal. He then discusses the biggest challenges facing his native country of Nigeria as well as the African continent in general. He also shares his thoughts on what reforms are needed to tackle those challenges. Finally, Japheth talks about the future of Nigeria and how the country has started to come to grips with corruption.
