Xenophobia:  Senate Hails Air Peace for Airlifting Returnees Free

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Employment, Labour and Productivity, Benjamin Uwajumogu, has hailed Air Peace Chief Executive Officer, Allen Onyema, for conveying Nigerian victims of xenophobic attacks in South Africa back to the country.

The senator showered encomiums on the airline boss, saying he is a Nigerian businessman with conscience.

He urged other businessmen and women to emulate his gesture.

Uwajumogu advised President Muhammadu Buhari to integrate the returnees into his administration’s Social Investment Scheme to get them back on their feet soonest.
