THE Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide has lauded the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Air Peace, Chief Allen Onyema, for the airline’s commencement of direct flight operations from Lagos to London.

The commendation is contained in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worlwide, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, on Friday in Enugu.

The association said that the decision to praise Onyema was reached on April 16 at a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide presided over by its President-General, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu.

According to the group, at the meeting, Iwuanyanwu noted extra-ordinary contributions Onyema has made to Nigeria in the recent past which include evacuation of Nigerians from South Africa as a result of Xenophobic attacks in September 2019.

“Others are the evacuation of no fewer than 277 Nigerians, especially students, who were stranded in Sudan following  outbreak of war in the Central Sudan, and the Air Peace Investiture Award to 1980 Nigerian Football Legends, among others,” it said.

It  expressed delight that  Air Peace could  connect passengers from Abuja, Asaba, Benin, Enugu, Owerri, Warri and Port Harcourt to London.

The association  said that it was cheering that barely two weeks after Air Peace began Lagos-London direct flights,  foreign carriers had reduced their air fares on the route by over 50 per cent.

“Chief Allen Onyema deserves a national applause because he has brought relief and succour to Nigerians.

“Ohaneze Ndigbo congratulates Chief Allen Onyema and urges him to remain undaunted.

“The Lord will continually renew your strength. You shall mount up with wings and soar high as the eagles, and the fleet and routes of the Air Peace shall remain on the increase.

“We urge the Air Peace to remain steadfast in its characteristic commitment to upholding the airline’s reputation, delivering quality service to passengers and promoting the image of Nigeria at all times,” it said. (NAN)
