The award was presented to  him at this year’s ceremony, held Saturday night at the Convention Hall of Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. Presenting the award, which went to another veteran actor, Pete Edochie last year, to Nkem Owoh, a member of the AMAA jury, Shaibu Husseini said, Osuofia deserved the honour, having being in the industry for more than three decades,  as he wrote scripts for the now rested late Ken Saro Wiwa’s soap, ‘Bassey and Company’  and TV drama, The New Masquerade. Accepting his statuette, Owoh dedicated his award to peacemakers all over the world.
