The heroics of Mr. Ejiro Otarigho is one that deserves commendation and rightly so Nigeria’s Deputy Senate President has laid praises on the man for his actions in Delta State.
Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, described Ejiro Otarigho, the driver who driven a burning tanker from a danger zone to avert a tragic fire incident in Agbarho, Delta, as a hero.
The commendation was contained in a statement that was issued yesterday in Abuja by Omo-Agege’s Director, Communications and Media Strategy, Mr. Ima Niboro.
Omo-Agege, who doubles as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta, described Otarigho as a hero for his gallantry.
He revealed in his statement:
“By your action, you have saved a lot of our people who could have died from this accident. It is not everyone that will have the courage to do what you just did.
“By this singular act, you saved Agbarho community from major disaster. And we are very proud of you.
“To me, you have become a hero to our people. And I’m sure a lot of people will be looking up to you right now. So you have every right to feel like a hero. I am very proud of you.”
It is remarkable what Mr. Ejiro Otarigho did, but it is even more surprising that aside the Deputy Senate President, Mr. Otarigho hasn’t received any accolades or call from Nigeria’s top politicians.
An action like this, calls for a national medal of recognition, especially at a time when the country is plagued by many crises.
Averting one such as this should very much be recognized if not for anything but the positivity it holds in general.
