Good day All

Duke Ifeakachukwu AMALIECHI is my name

Duke Ifeaakachukwu hails from Delta State in Nigeria. He is the National Coordinator, Representative and Affiliate of United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights International in Nigeria. An organisation he joined and for over the past 10 years has been actively involved in expanding human rights promotion and protection through education, advocacy, activism, networking, social commentary and public enlightenment in Nigeria. He is also the Founder and Executive Director of One in Light Foundation, and organization committed to helping people overcome the shadows that envelope them, Darlene their days and weigh them down.

Duke Ifeakachukwu is a graduate of two Nigerian first generation Universities: he holds a Bachelor of Science (BSc.) Degree from Nigeria’s Premier University of Ibadan, Ibadan Oyo State, and a Master of Science (MSc.) Degree from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State. He is currently studying for his Doctorate (PhD) degree in International Relations.

Duke Ifeakachukwu is well known as a human rights activist, educator and trainer, as a Peace Advocate, SDG Activator, libertarian pilgrim and lover of humanity.

His presence on this stage is very unlikely. As a result of the experience he had as he grew up, Duke have had cause to look at contemporary Nigeria and saw its problems: a crackdown on civic engagement and shrinking civic spaces, rape, assault, discrimination, torture, modern day slavery, police brutality, harmful traditional practices, attacks on free speech, bad governance, absence of rule of law, transparency and accountability, the absence of social security and man’s inhumanity to fellow men.

Duke have witnessed its suffering and its pain, its heartache and injustices, things that Nigerians face each and every day. And this angered him greatly and he felt this could be changed in his life time because he is ready to embrace the fire of making human rights a reality…

Join me on this mission to make human rights a fact and not just an idealistic dream, because there are still so many people out there who do not know about their most basic tights and fundamental freedom.

Collaborations are very much welcome, as I look forward to making a difference together

Thank you

Duke Ifeakachukwu
