Pete Edochie is the founder of Tansi Canonisation Support Campaign.
A religious organization campaigning for the canonisation of Blessed Micheal Iwene Tansi.
Blessed Tansi was born in Aguleri Anambra State of Nigeria in 1903, he died 1964 and was beatified in March 22 1998 by Pope John Paul II.
In 2004 Pete Edochie made a movie on the life of Blessed Iwene Tansi "Avenge me, Iwene my son". With the support of the Vatican the movie is being circulated throughout the Roman Catholic community in Nigeria.
Since then Pete has been working relentlessly with the Tansi Canonisation Support Campaign (TCSC) to get Blessed Iwene Tansi canonised.
