In a statement by Obi’s Media Office and signed by his Media Adviser, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, the Anambra State former governor said that Ikwuemesi remained one of the best exemplification of the industry and business acumen of the Igbo man in particular and Nigerians in general.
“He went into the aviation industry at a difficult time and was already a household name before and incident some of us love to forget disrupted his operations”, Obi said.
Obi, who remembered the healthy collaboration of the airline and the government of Anambra State under his administration, described Ikwuemesi as one of those understanding Anambrarians that granted his government generous discounts in their businesses that helped him to reduce the cost of governance by over 50%, which assisted the state under him to save excess money.
Based on the fact that the late Chief Ikwuemesi died of Coronavirus infection, Obi, while praying for the repose of his soul, encouraged Nigerians to keep to all recommended safety guides against the virus.
