AMPlify9ja is a team of distinguished and exceptional marketers, entertainers, artisans, publicists, activists, influencers, entrepreneurs and analysts from tertiary institutions across the federation with the sole aim of appraising, promoting and supporting Nigerian brands and personalities across the country and world over.
It was an event filled with much positive energy, edutainment and celebration for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as he was presented with the AMP Award for ‘Icon of excellence in students’ welfare and support’ on the 21st of June, 2016 in the main auditorium of University of Benin which was filled to capacity.
Report reaching us from the organisers is that momentum is high in preparation for the Lagos state edition of the #AMPAwards16 ceremony. Follow @AMPlify_9jaon Instagram and twitter for more updates.
The AMPlify9ja team were also hosted by the recipient of the ‘Icon of excellence in support of students’ welfare’ at his residence in Benin City where they met his lovely family and got to know the man behind the legend. A special interview session was held and according to Simeon Edward N. (CEO/MD, AMPlify9ja), Pastor Osagie Ize Iyamu is a man who understands the current challenges the youth (graduates and undergraduates) are facing today in Edo state and has a specially planned agenda to help eradicate unemployment, unnecessary hardships and irrelevant restrictions imposed on the youth which stops us exploiting and maximizing our potentials towards personal and nationwide development’.
With over 715,000 students from over 20 tertiary institutions (5 in Edo state) in the country supporting and benefiting from the AMPlify9ja initiative, it is looking as though they are the new voice of Nigerian students/Youth.
