TIMOTHY MICHAEL ADEPOJU

timothy-michael-adepoju-ppp

Timothy Michael Adepoju is a dedicated peace activist whose day-to-day life demonstrates his belief that “peace is possible In Nigeria”. His passion to engage in service to humanity was sparked in February of 2006 when he witnessed the killing of his mother, brother and sister during a religious crisis in the northern part of the country.

The Triade Peace Foundation has since been formed (TRIADE means trio of Adepojus’ murdered) as an organization to promote love, forgiveness and tolerance, irrespective of religion, beliefs, tribe, culture and ethnicity.

Timothy is Executive Director of the foundation, which is working to spread the culture of entrenched peaceful coexistence amongst Nigerian youth, particularly with students. A graduate of electrical engineering, he has been converted into a social and humanitarian ambassador. He has studied conflict resolution and peace promotion and is currently providing psychosocial support to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in refugee camps, and promoting peace through schools using students as gatekeepers to the wider society. He also uses audio and video documentaries to walk victims through his own experience to teach the love and forgiveness he has learned to demonstrate during and after the crisis.

  1. Tim has done so much to promote peaceful coexistence in Nigeria I honestly think he deserves to be honored

  2. If there is a single person that deserves this amongst other equally qualified humanitarians, it should be Timothy. I’ve known him for decades and admire his courage, empathy and dedication towards promoting human welfare in the face of the adversity he has witnessed. His work is truly a triumph of the human spirit and the world needs more people like him.

  4. This is very brave and commendable Tim. I wish you success in ensuring peace in Nigeria through such a selfless act.

  5. You are an inspiration to all. Despite all done to you, you refused to be angry and chose to love. You have been giving back to a country that failed. You are my hero

  6. I didn’t hesitate to drop a comment when I visited this page. Timothy is one in a million; to have experienced the events of early 2006 and still have the heart care for others takes great courage and compassion. I have known him for several decades now and can attest to his kind hearthedness. Your desire to pursue peace, forgiveness and reconcilliation in lives of those who need them will leave an indelible mark that history will tell. I salute you sir, you deserve this honour….a true humanitarian ambassador that will greatly impact lives.

  7. You have my vote anytime because you are a man with a very large heart. More grease to your elbows.

  8. Timothy is doing a great job in promoting peace in Nigeria and Africa. I’m so proud of you Tim. Keep it up and I wish you all the best.

  9. I have known Tim Michael Adepoju for over 27 years now (more than half of my life). Even as school boys, he had always been cool and level headed. My respect for him grew exponentially seeing how he bounced back after the great tragedy that befell him due to senseless violence he experienced over a decade ago. He truly deserves this honor as a living embodiment that love trumps hate anytime any day and anywhere!

  10. After witnessing the murder of a precious Mother, Sister and Brother you decided to forgive and promote peace. You are strong. My honest opinion you deserve this peace award. If only we have more of forgiveness in our land; Nigeria will be better and greater.

  11. Young people must be at the centre of sustainable development agenda by promoting the culture of Peace and this is what Timothy Michael represent. Receive the assurance of my best regards always and good luck.
