Air Peace’s Embraer 195-E2 Aircraft Serves Super Eagles
Air Peace’s ultramodern Embraer 195-E2 aircraft, last Tuesday, conveyed Super Eagles of Nigeria to and from Cape Verde as they won their second World Cup qualifiers campaign.
On arrival, the Chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema fulfilled his promise to the Super Eagles by giving them a sum of 20 million naira for winning their match against the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde on Tuesday.
The Eagles received the cheque upon arrival at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos and Onyema congratulated the players, charging them to also emerge victorious in their subsequent games. He expressed delight that the Eagles did not disappoint the nation, adding that ‘we believe in your capabilities and have faith in you’.
“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.
The nationalist implored the team to keep up the winning streak and continue uniting Nigerians with their pitch exploits. He added that Air Peace believes in the team and will continue to support them to take Nigerian football to greater heights.
When interviewed, Captain Ahmed Musa, who said he enjoyed flying the brand new E195-E2 aircraft, thanked Allen Onyema for his kind gestures towards the team and stressed that Onyema’s unity speech really inspired the players.
It can be recalled that Onyema had urged the players before they departed for Cape Verde a couple of days ago, to use their football strides to unite Nigerians, emphasizing the unifying power of sports, while also promising them cash rewards.
