Update on Pius Adesanmi Candlelight march and Day of tribute.

Our determination and resolve to honor Pius with a top quality and memorable event is strengthened by the day.
The plan towards the candlelight memorial is in top gear. 

In order to deliver a top quality memorial befitting the honor of Pius, we decided to combine the earlier planned two programs into one, which will hold at Lagos. 

The Candlelight procession and Day of tributes will therefore hold on Saturday March 23, 2019- The venue of the Day of Tribute is Blue Roof Auditorium inside LTV premises at Alawusa.

The Candlelight procession will commence at the public Park Beside Ikeja City Mall Opposite Adeyemi Bero Auditorium by 1:00pm on that day, run down the Governors Road, make a detour left on Obafemi Awolowo Way and finally right into Lateef Jakande Way where the Blue Roof Auditorium is located.

While this goes on at Lagos, Simultaneous procession shall take place at Ilorin, Akure and Lokoja. Our diaspora brothers and sisters will join us online in a virtual candlelight.

The theme Chosen for the Tributes is “Rethinking Africa, Challenging the norm” in alignment with the philosophical underpinnings of Pius’ relentless war against mediocrity and his conceptualization of a lasting solution to Africa’s challenges. Notable Nigerians are being invited to deliver speeches at the Tribute.

Limited quantities of Pius Memorial T shirts are available for free distribution at the take off point of the march on a first-come first-served basis.

Ezekwesili, Kukah, Oyemade, Omojuwa to speak at Evening of Tributes for Professor Pius Adesanmi

Ahead of Procession March and Evening of Tributes for Professor Pius Adesanmi which is billed to hold on Saturday, March 23, 2019 in Lagos, the organizers ‘Friends of Pius’ say they have received confirmation from Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, Bishop Mathew Kukah, Pastor Poju Oyemade and Mr. Japheth Omojuwa to speak on the theme “Rethinking Africa: Challenging the Norm” at the Evening of Tributes which will hold at the Blue Roof, Lagos Television, Ikeja, Lagos.

According to the organizers, the choice of speakers for the event stem from their pedigree for using their unique style and platforms to challenge the norms of mediocrity and irresponsibility over the years, ideals the late Pius Adesanmi lived for and taught until the end of his life. 

Speaking further, Mr. Abimbola Olujide Who is the Coordinator of the ‘Friends of Pius’, “although our beloved friend and brother, Professor Pius Adesanmi died under tragic circumstances, we recognize the need to celebrate the enormous success he made of his life and how much he impacted hundreds of thousands around the world. It is only fitting therefore that even as we celebrate the colossal feats he achieved in life, we do not lose sight of what he lived for: to rid the continent of mediocrity and irresponsibility enabled by a culture of excuses. This is why we have carefully chosen a theme which represents this ideal.” Mr. Olujide said the ‘Friends of Pius’ are committed to ensuring the legacies the late Pius Adesanmi left behind are not forgotten.
