Sudan: ‘He Was Criticized Because He Is An Igbo Christian’ – Shehu Sani Reacts To Air Peace Evacuation Offer

Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker, responded to Air Peace’s offer to assist Nigerians stuck in war-torn Sudan.

According to Naija News, the airline’s chairman, Allen Onyema, stated on Monday that if Nigerians in the North-East African region could be evacuated to a neighboring nation, the airline would fly there and do so because Sudan’s airspace is off limits to commercial aircraft.

“Nigeria cannot afford to lose its citizens in that nation, so I feel forced to assist. To ensure the safety of the trapped Nigerians in the war-torn nation would be my personal commitment, Onyema stated.

In response to Onyema’s suggestion, Sani said that the country would not benefit from decisions based on religion and ethnicity.

He recounted how some people were upset that Air Peace, which is owned by a Christian Igbo man, was permitted to transport pilgrims to Saudi Arabia.

According to Shehu Sani, the same airline that received criticism for being run by a Christian Igbo is now prepared to assist Muslims in Sudan.

Some individuals weren’t pleased when a Christian Igbo man’s airline, Air Peace, was proposed to fly pilgrims to Saudi Arabia, the author of the letter wrote.

“They reasoned that the ones owned by Muslims should be. Today, most of those students stranded in the Sudan are Muslims; I have been to Sudan and I sponsored many students to study there. The Airline owned by the Christian Igbo is there to freely fly them out of danger. Eye glasses tinted with ethnicity or religion will never give you a clearer vision of any plain object.”
