Air Peace CEO Fulfills N20m Promise To Super Eagles…

Chairman of Air Peace, Mr. Allen Onyema, has fulfilled his N20 million promise to the Super Eagles.

Ahead of the match against the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde, Onyema had promised to splash N20 million on the Nigerian team if they emerged victorious.

The Nigerian team defeated their opponent 2-1 in the game which held on Tuesday.

The Eagles, who flew to and from Cape Verde in one of Air Peace’s brand new Embraer 195-E2 aircraft, received N20 million cheque upon arrival on Wednesday at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport ((MMIA), Lagos.

Onyema congratulated the players on the second win in their World Cup qualifiers campaign and charged them to also emerge victorious in subsequent games.

The Air Peace boss said he was delighted that the Eagles did not disappoint the nation.

“We believe in your capabilities and have faith in you,” he said.
“I am happy that you fulfilled your promise to the nation, knowing that you carry the aspirations of Nigerians on your young shoulders. When you were one-zero down, everybody was panicking. Everybody was praying. And you responded like lions and won the match. There were celebrations all over the country – North, South, East and West”, Onyema stated.

He also implored the team to sustain the winning streak and continue uniting Nigerians on the pitch.

He added that Air Peace believes in the team and will continue to support them to take Nigerian football to greater heights.

In an interview, Captain Ahmed Musa, who said he enjoyed flying the brand new E195-E2 aircraft, thanked Onyema for his kind gesture.

He said Onyema’s unity speech really inspired the players.

It would be recalled that the airline had last week signed a sponsorship deal with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) worth over N300m annually renewable for the next four years.
