Have you ever wondered why the Student Union Government Secretariat in Ambrose Alli University is named COMRADE MOSES OISAKEDE SECRETARIAT??

Am sure even some past union leaders and parliamentarian don’t even know they just enter the secretariat to hold meetings and leave

Comrade Moses Oisakede and Livingstone Akwanga died on their way to reinstate some rusticated students in Makurdi on the 1st of September 1999

Moses Oisakede, who at his death was a 28 years old biochemistry student of the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, had one philosophy of life, which was that “the value of a life is in its contribution to humanity.

seventeen years after Moses’ death, it is very disheartening and saddening to discover that the issues which led to the untimely demise of Moses Oisakede and Livingstone Akwange are still prevalent within the education sector and the nation as a whole. These issues are; arbitrary expulsion and dismissal of student union activists, bad deplorable conditions of our roads, poor state of facilities on our campuses and poor state of health facilities

I remember very vividly the song which was composed and rendered with solemnity by the students of Ambrose Alli University at the burial of Moses Oisakede.*

Moses don die o!
Alele ku ele
If dem no expel us, Moses no go die
If dem give us good roads, Moses no go die
If dem build hospitals, Livingstone no go die
Na now u go know say government people bad
Simple condolence dem no fit to send
Moses don die o!
Alele ku ele.
It is a pity that seventeenth years ago, we are still at where we were, perambulating!
