Igbo group lauds FG on resolving Air Peace, Emirates row

The Igbo Centre for Education and Culture Advancement (IGBOCECA), has commended the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika and the Director-General of Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Capt. Musa Nuhu, for resolving the recent face-off between Air Peace and the Dubai government.

The group in a statement in Abuja, also called on Igbo groups and other well-meaning Nigerians across the globe to do the same.

The Executive Director of the Centre, Abel Ezeagwula, said: “As a Nigerian, I have never been prouder. The Minister of Aviation and the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority have rekindled our hope in the strength and importance of this great country Nigeria.

“More importantly, as an Igbo man, I now see a government willing to go to any extent to protect a fellow Igbo man,” he noted.

Ezeagwuala said the action has ignited a sense of pride and provided people with talking points for those who quickly promote issues that quickly divide the country.

While highlighting some of the antecedents of the DG of the NCAA, Ezeagwula said the NCAA boss has been supporting local aviation businesses, doing business in other countries. 

“He has had to intervene and resolve issues between Nigerian airlines and aviation regulators in Togo, Rwanda, Cameroon, among others.”
