Mr Allen Onyema, the Chairman of Air Peace Airline, has advised all Nigerians to embrace unity well, adding that if our human, natural as well as mineral resources are well harnessed, our country will be greater than all European countries.
Onyema, who helped to airlift stranded Nigerians with his company’s aircraft for free from South Africa following the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians said this in Lagos on Thursday during his investiture as an ambassador for Change, an initiation of a non-governmental organization, Centre for Change.
He urged all Nigerians to come together and work in changing the country, adding that the government can’t do it alone in developing the country without the citizen’s support.
“Nigeria is a country of over 378 ethnic nationalities which implies that we have a huge diversity. This diversity is supposed to be our strength, but it has become an albatross of a kind to us. We should be able to manage our diversity for the best and development of our nation?”, Onyeama said.
The Air Peace boss said, “This country is without no shadow of doubt blessed. The resources – human, natural and mineral resources we have in this country, if well harnessed, and if we do things in unity, this country will be greater than all European countries.”
