Against the backdrop of the dwindling image of Nigeria in foreign countries, an international organisation known as Global Peace Movement International UK has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to honour the CEO of Air Peace, Allen Onyeama.
The Organisation said Onyeama had stake his life and resources to ensure that Nigerians that were stranded abroad in the wake covid 19 pandemic were safely returned to Nigeria.
The Global Peace Movement charged president Muhammadu Buhari to always reward Nigerians who have distinguished themselves in the area of productivity and adding value to the image of Nigeria at home and abroad to motivate others to toe in that direction.
In a press statement made available to Journalists on Monday , the President General of the Organisation Dr. Mike Uyi stated that it is only when those Nigerians whose works and conducts have elevated the battered image of Nigeria are recognised and rewarded the number of people who will want to shun evil will continue to shrink.
Dr. Uyi reminded the nation that at a time where the country is battling with renewing its image before international communities, it is also important to note that some good Nigerians have risen to the occasion and made the nation proud.
Speaking further Uyi flashed back how the CEO of Air Peace Allen Oyeama made the nation proud specially when Nigerians were stranded in other foreign lands, how he rose to the occasion and provided free services to rescue his compatriots.
According to Dr. Uyi ” A service that got him a standing ovation from the National Assembly, such a man doesn’t just deserve a standing ovation ,he should be accorded a National Award, so as to serve as an encouragement to other Nigerians to do more and promote the unity of Nigeria.
“At a time Nigeria is facing succession and drum of war, Oyeama has distinguished himself as a man who believes in the unity of our beloved nation. His actions at providing succour to Nigerians irrespective of their tribes and creed has shown that he is one Nigeria out of millions”.
” I humbly request President Muhammadu Buhari to as a matter of urgency kick start a process at giving him Aational Award in order to encourage others in lifting the image of the country wherever they are found across the globe” he solicited.
