According to NUSA, the umbrella organisation of Nigerians in South Africa,  the gesture came at a point when all hope seemed to have been lost in a far-away nation.

“It was great and humbling to hear Allen Onyema say he would do whatever it took to rescue the situation.

“He emphasized his disposition to make a difference in the society for national interest and for this, we say he is a rare breed in our generation,” N said

Olubajo also added that Onyema had constantly been a source of inspiration to people who appreciate philanthropic gestures.
