Age may be a number but life is certainly a battle. And if the life is that of the urbane and personable the Chairman of Hotel de Espana,Ambrose Elofu Elue-Dike,then life is not only a battle–it is a full blown war.Ever since he adorned himself as a soldier for good,he has had no reprieve from the unrelenting forces of evil. He is caught in the vortex of the eternal battle between good and evil.
Indeed, to those who know him up close and personal, Dike is an enigma: humble, self-effacing,industrious, practical, efficient by nature, diligent, always thinking about things he needs to accomplish or how to get ahead on his next assignment,a complete Gemini,if you care to assess him by his Zodiac sign. But in plain terms, he is a case of a man who set out to always make a difference wherever he found himself. Not the kind of difference other men pursue to grandstand, but the type that impacts humanity and makes life easier for people. And of this, his track record is unassailable. A look back at his trajectory gives a chronicle of exemplary service to his community and a profile of pure patriotism from an individual.
Greatness is a property for which no man can receive credit too soon; it must be possessed long before it is acknowledged.”When one of the world’s greatest thinkers, Ralph Waldo Emerson handed down the above words of wisdom, those he had in mind were certainly the likes of Ambrose Elofu Elue-Dike (Espana)! .
For the trail-blazing Business mogul from Isieke-Ibusa,Delta State, it is certainly impossible to gloss over his attributes for greatness.He is the embodiment of cerebral articulation, the essence of unparalleled philanthropy,the epitome of intellection and breathtaking simplicity, the personification of undiluted humanness, the perfect example of business leadership symbolism, the paragon of idealism, the soul of humanity, the heart of warrior, a perfect gentleman.In the gallery of great leaders and great men, he is without doubt, a rare masterpiece. Anyone who encounters him would love to associate with him for his candour, courage and forthrightness. As a human being, his humility and modesty is second to none. As an Businessman, he is sound and engaging.
Ambrose Elofu Elue-Dike,he means different things to different people; to his wife and children,he is a loving husband and a kind daddy, while to us his admirers,he is known as the Digital Business Strategist but his detractors always erroneously see him as an obstacle because of his rising profile in business,Politics and acceptance by the grassroots.
Ambrose is not only the Pride of Dike’s but also the Pride of the People of Oshimili North Local Government Area for whom he had waged countless business and political wars for and won virtually all,just like the Greek mythological Odyssey who fought and won difficult battles in History.Indeed the birthday celebration of this digital Businessman of our time had been useful and Resourceful for his service to humanity.Therefore today let me on behalf of Most Distinguished Senator Peter Onyelukachukwu Nwaoboshi (SPON) Political Family join the rest of my beloved Ibusa kingdom in Oshimili North Local government Area of Deltans and Nigerians at large to celebrate our Business and Political iconoclastic Espana International(Umuejei-Ibusa),to thank Almighty God for adding another year to his life and to pray that God continues to bless him with robust health,protection,and enduring provision.Your business reign shall bring prosperity and peace to Ibusa, Oshimili, Delta State and Nigeria in general.
Your legendary generosity and willingness to do good at all times is documented in the hearts of millions.That is why on your birthday, You deserves a toast and song, “Happy birthday to you…” Above all, You deserves a prayer from everyone who is on the side of truth in the eternal battle between truth and falsehood.
Happy birthday to the regent,aka Umuejei-Ibusa,a great lover of our tradition.
