“With each passing day, it is becoming clearer that the apostles of politics with bitterness are bent on pursuing the path of perdition and do not care if they drag the names of innocent person into the mud.”
“We, therefore cannot and will not fold our arms and allow them to mess up honorable individuals like Mr Allen Onyema, who has contributed immensely to the socioeconomic transformation and development of our dear Country. Besides, to remain silent is to allow desperate blackmailers to continue to mislead and misinform Nigerians and the international community about Mr. Onyema and the Air Peace conglomerate.”
“We have good reasons to believe just as we have it on good authority that this latest phantom allegations against Air Peace and its Chairman have the imprimatur of a desperate individuals.”

While, we could have elected to ignore this smear campaigns particularly in the media, but it has become imperative to dispel this concocted tissues of lies, fabrication and misinformation.
