Ohanaeze Ndigbo Congratulates Air Peace CEO, Allen Onyema For Commencing Lagos to London Flights

Allen Onyema — Honouring unsung heroes of Nigerian sport -


The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide congratulates an Igbo quintessence, an exceptional philanthropist, Lawyer, robust and creative thinker, visionary entrepreneur, jinx breaker, the Chairman and Chief Executive of the Air Peace, Chief Allen Onyema for commencing a direct flight operations from Lagos to London.


The resolution to commend Onyema was reached on Tuesday, April 16, 2024 at the plenary of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide presided over by the President General, Chief Engr. Dr. Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, MFR; OFR; CFR; FNICE; FNSE; FNIST; KSG (Ahaejiagamba Ndigbo). At the meeting, Chief Iwuanyanwu recapitulated the extra-ordinary contributions that Chief Onyema has rendered to Nigeria in the recent past; some of which include the evacuation of Nigerians from South Africa as a result of Xenophobic attacks in September 2019; the evacuation of no fewer than 277 Nigerians, especially students, who were stranded in Sudan following the outbreak of war in the Central Sudan; the Air Peace Investiture Award to 1980 Nigerian Football Legends, amongst many others.


Ohanaeze has however noted with great concern the orchestrated internal and external conspiracies, malicious aero-politics, imperialistic intrigues, airport discriminations including a heightened price war, all in an attempt to frustrate the Air Peace. Most unfortunately, the invidious collaborators fail to understand the transcendental Igbo mystique; tenacity, resourcefulness, ingenuity, audacity, resilience and capacity to transform adversities to opportunities. In other words, the more the challenges or obstacles against the Igbo, the stronger, more activated, vibrant and triumphant they become.


The Igbo Leader expressed immense delight that the Air Peace can now connect passengers from Abuja, Asaba, Benin, Enugu, Owerri, Warri, and Port Harcourt to London.

Ahaejiagamba also enthused that barely two weeks after the Air Peace commenced the Lagos-London route, all foreign carriers have reduced their fares on the route by over 50 percent. Chief Allen Onyema deserves a national applause because he has brought relief and succour to Nigerians.


Ohanaeze 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.



Dr. Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, the National Publicity Secretary, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worlwide
