Nigerian Humanist Students Society



Motto: science and reason for sustainable development

The Nigerian Humanist Students Society (NHSS) is an umbrella body for organised student humanist groups in Nigeria. 5 students groups are affiliated to the NHSS. The NHSS is active at several Nigerian Campuses.

NHSS defines Humanism as a movement "informed by Science, nurtured by Arts and motivated by compassion for human existence". Its aims are underpinned with this principle. And as humanists, atheists, agnostics and freethinkers, NHSS derives the goals of life from human needs and interests, rather than from theological or ideological abstractions, and it asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.
