Ekpoma 21st September 2019

In the spirit of 30th anniversary celebration of Professor Ambrose Alli, the Esan Youths Movement, the umbrella youth organization in Esan land has called on all Esan Leaders home and abroad to emulate the virtues of Prof Ambrose Alli, the hero of Bendel State who as the governor of Bendel State for one tenure left a legacy that remains unbroken till date.

According to the anniversary of the legend statement released to esan.tv by the national President of Esan Youths Movement (EYM), Comrade Kingsley Ohens, the selfless Ambrose Alli did not build his own house or amass billions in his bank account but all his life and political sojourning, he dedicated to the happiness of his people.

Ambrose Alli built over 600 secondary schools at the time other states in Nigeria had only 50 fees paying secondary schools and he placed all Bendel Schools on compulsory free eduation. He established new polytechnics, colleges of Education and the pacesetter Bendel State University now Ambrose University and Delta State University.

The great leader was later inprisoned for no just cause until the Esama of Benin Kingdom, Chief Igbinedion paid a fine of one million naira for his release and he died shortly after his release.

Ambrose Alli did not only focus on education but all facets of human endeavour in housing, free medical service, free scholarship for government workers and free meal for school students.

In fact till date no government has been able to break the records and legacies of Ambrose Alli. EYM therefore call on all Esan Leaders home and abroad to emulate the great legacies of Alli and be people centered in their programmes and projects saying “what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul. Today we are celebrating Alli because of his selfless service to the people. What shall it profit you if you amass wealth and in the end nobody remembers you for good?” the statement reads
