It was a dream come through for the CEO of Air-Peace Airline Chief Barr. Allen Ifechukwu Onyema (IDEE!) the directors of the company, staff, Ndi-Ihiala LGA, Umu-Anambra State, Ndi-Igbo, Nigeria, West Africa and Africa at large as history was made in our moribund aviation sector through the vision of one man with the midas touch.
Air-Peace Airline on its first international trip billed for 5th July 2019 as was widely announced, had a humongous number of over 350 passengers to make the history as it departs Muritala Mohammed Airport Lagos around 10:pm Nigerian Time finding its way to SHARJAH-DUBAI @about 6:am Nigerian Time to the glory of God.
It is important to also report that The Boeing 777 used for the journey was gallantly steered by our indigenous first-class Pilot Mr. Egeonu a native of Atani community in Ogbaru LGA, Anambra State in company of majestic and good looking cabin crew who rendered unending heart thrilling services to the air travellers during their 8hours air cruise!
The CEO of Air-Peace Barr. Onyema in one of the Television Program he featured days ago, did emphatically assured the travelling population home and diaspora that the company (Air-Peace Airline) is in operation with the aim to provide an unprecedented ecstasy, luxury, a good quality service delivery in the industry starting from the homes of the customers in various states to the airport at ease. He also noted that this innovation will unarguably contribute to his desire to help alleviate hunger and poverty in many nations as part of the company’s contributions to humanity by providing deluge of employment opportunities for the teaming youths across the globe directly/ indirectly.
The above assurance was evident as hundreds of testimonies flew in from those that traveled with the Airline yesterday with tales of experiencing air travel in a way unheard of before.
In Dubai for example, the Country’s Govt Senior Officials, Princess, Economic Leadersfrom the Arab world, International Business Moguls, The Nigerian Ambassador To Dubai were all seen in the airport at Sharjah waiting for the arrival of the Nigeria Bird as it flew through the international Air Space conspicuously aware of the enormity of the economic gains that follows this grand breaking occasion.
Your guess as to what the atmosphere was as the BIG BIRD perched the well decorated Airport runway and safely discharge its passengers is without mincing word “MAGICAL”
Yes history was indeed made!
Let me however appreciate the Nigerian Population who came out to support their own beyond ethnic cleavage. Nigerians from all works of life from Entertainment industry to Manufacturers, Captains of World Economy, Religious / Traditional Leaders, Political heavyweights name it, all patriotically made an uncommon/ bold statement, as they partook to lite up this history with their intimidating numbers as the Giant of Africa (almost 400 passengers onboard the plane) sharing in the joy of this feat, a hope that we can still get it right one way or the other as a Nation but with the right people leading to this Paradise.
My own Boss himself was not left out of this trip (mbanuuu!) the Deputy Speaker Of Anambra State House Of Assembly Agbodike Paschal Arinze onye ihie oma na adi mma (Mmirioma 1 of Ihiala LGA) as you can see him smiling joyfully to Gods grace on Our Leader The Air-Peace Boss his mentor. See the picture to spot him out.
The Buhari Govt must be appreciated too for supporting this project and providing to the best they can, necessary assistance that birthed this dreams.
Let this success story also serve as a compass for success to the administrators of our Nation who have continued to maraud around many transformation projects in the country in perpetuity without any improvement that “all it takes to change this Nation is the WILL.”
It took only the WILL of just one MAN to change and instill hope in one of our economically wrecked sector which positioned Nigeria strategically amongst its sister states and prove to the world that The Potentials In Africa Is Still Untaped and would definitely Lord the world in due time.
