Air Peace, one of Nigeria’s indigenous carriers owned by Chief Allen Onyeama, has offered to transport Nigerians trapped in Sudan for free.
The airline made the announcement amid a rivalry war in the North-East African country.
Air Peace stated that Nigerian students and others stranded in the war-torn country require our assistance.
According to Onyema, Nigerians in Sudan could be relocated to another nation, with Peace Air flying there and evacuating them.
“I am compelled to help because Nigeria cannot afford to lose its citizens in that country,” Onyema added. It would be my personal obligation to ensure the safety of the trapped Nigerians in the war-torn country.
“Everything must not be left to the government alone, especially given the urgency of the situation.”
“Once again, Air Peace is willing to evacuate Nigerians stranded in Sudan for free if the government can get them to a safe and secure airport in any of Sudan’s bordering countries.”
“Nothing should be left to the government and the government alone.” It will be a delight and an honor to go there to give every Nigerian stuck in Sudan a sense of pride and oneness with their country.
“We are very ready to do it immediately. No time wasting. Any action that would promote national pride, national cohesion, peace and unity, we are for it. Again, we have no apologies for believing in our nation and loving the nation despite certain national challenges.
“If they are moved to Kenya or Uganda or any other country, we will move in to get them out. Some parents have started calling on us to help. We are ready to do this again and again.”
