Ignore Those Demanding $1,000 For Your Flight – Air Peace Chair Tells Nigerians Leaving South Africa
Mr. Allen Onyema
The News Agency of Nigeria said Onyema reiterated that the returnees’ flight home was on Air Peace, urging them to guard against unauthorised persons reportedly collecting $1,000 from them, adding that no returnee should pay for the flight.
“We have not designated or recruited any agent in South Africa to collect money on behalf of Air Peace.
“So, nobody should pay money to anyone or group of persons posing as Air Peace agent or staff.
Air Peace had, last week, volunteered to send an aircraft to evacuate, free of charge, Nigerians who wish to return home.
He said the airline was particularly concerned about the safety of Nigerians in South Africans following the attacks.
She said that the returnees would be encouraged to enroll and participate in the various social intervention programmes of the government.
“We will encourage them to enroll in small scale entrepreneurial programmes with the Bank of Industry under the social investment programme.
“So, there are things that they can do,” she said.
