Ondo APC Chieftain, Steve Otaloro bags man of the year award

The Director, Media & Publicity of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State, Steve Otaloro has been honoured with the man of the year award.

The award was presented to him by the Maxima Vanguard, a social political organization in Nigeria, for his outstanding skills in his chosen career, his service to humanity and his immense contributions to the group during the year.

The highly elated Otaloro  used the occasion to shed lights on the dreaded Coronavirus.

He commended the quick intervention of Governot Rotimi Akeredolu in containing the virus in the state.

 This, outrightly, is the reason the state recorded the kind of low rate of affected people in mortality rate.

Otaloro said, “though the effort of the government of Ondo State in the resultant economic lockdown and closure of public life in the bid to contain the spread of the virus affected businesses and way of life, bearing negative consequences on mankind, we are, however, grateful that in all of this difficulties we are alive to tell the story, compared to what happened in certain parts of the world where a large percentage of their population never live to tell the story”. 

He opined that soon the people of the state will overcome the setbacks caused by the pandemic and forge ahead with great expectations.

“I thank the people who considered me worthy of this award and others who were, equally, shortlisted for it, based on their display of great spirit of sportsmanship.”
“This award,” the recipient said “is tagged ‘Man of the Year Award’, but it is so much big for just one man to contain. This award is about the inherent good that lies within humanity.”

Otaloro expressed his gratitude to receive the award on behalf of those heroes of 2020.

He dedicated the award to mankind and to the fallen heroes occasioned by the pandemic.
