John Oko is the Country Director for Global Peace Foundation Nigeria, a position he has held from 2010. Working with Muslim and Christian faith leaders in several communities that have stood segregated, often fueling stereotypes and suspicion, GPF Nigeria’s ‘One Family under God’ Campaign has been hosting a series of peacebuilding workshops in Kaduna State to promote community cohesion. The workshops focus to foster a shared commitment across lines of difference to build communities of peace and shared prosperity. With an emphasis on universal principles and shared values across religious traditions, the campaign works to transform attitudes and behaviors of individuals and groups. From 2007 to 2010, John was the National President of Youth Federation for World Peace Nigeria during which he facilitated partnerships with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to organize several capacity building workshops and conferences for Youth Leaders of the 16 ECOWAS countries.
