Our History

In June 2020, the first FACT corner project planning meeting was held. What has now become FACT corner project first originated with a number of conversations that Gideon and his fellow colleagues who are graduates of the Department of Computer Science, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, 2006/2007 set, had in their Whatsapp forum.  One of the key questions that arose in one of their conversations is ‘how can we contribute to educating African youths and shaping the conversations among them to building a better Africa?’. With this in mind, Gideon,  Oluwayomi and Boboye  (founding team members) continued the conversation, and subsequently, founded FACT corner project.
