When the FG was soft on them regarding the MTN fine saga, they didn't know that they didn't deserve it.

God bless air peace and its management for taking this noble step.
Meanwhile a useless government says president has ordered evacuation of Nigerians from SA only by mouth but no plane.
Now they want to provide 40k airtime and 10k for transport shocked grin na wah oh. As per bank of industry giving loans, that one na voice mail.
On the other hand the same government is charging air peace the usual taxes etc for the flight shocked

The federal government tried no doubt especially by providing money for them to start something with. At least you guys can move freely here without fear. God bless Nigeria

seems is long you left earth for Jupiter. here on earth sister kidnapping had been a regular trademark in Nigeria, just pray they get to their destination safely before those kidnappers reason them

SA govt are just bunch of useless entity. imagine detaining a returnees that want to leave your country voluntarily, isn't that why the govt supported xenophobic acts? Buhari diplomatic approach is really giving the SA govt liver

prof2007:
The number of Nigerians that made it back to Nigeria drastically reduced following moves by the South African government to frustrate the evacuation efforts. Only about 187 adults and children were successfully evacuated on Wednesday as against the 320 Nigerians expected back home.

The flight arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, at 9.43pm.

One of the returnees, Uche Victor, told journalists that he left his wife who he said was a Cameronian and a young daughter behind. He said, “I’m bleeding because I left my wife and baby but I have to come back because my mother cries for me to return. If something happens to me she will suffer. I left my business, I came back with nothing. South Africans believe all Nigerians are drug pushers, but I don’t know the colour of any drug.”

Victor, who explained that he left Nigeria for South Africa in 2007, explained that the attacks were anger against the government. “They are only venting their anger on foreigners. They started with black and will move to whites,” he said.

According to him, the flight would have returned earlier but the South African government made it difficult. “The didn’t want us to go but for Nigeria’s consulate,” he added.

Another returnee from Abia State, who gave his name as Onuoha, said a lot of Nigerians were still stranded as they could not return with their properties.

Aliu Saheed, from Osun State, said his shop was burgled and he came back home empty-handed. “But I’m happy to be home, I’m not going back again,” he said.

S’A CANCELS VISAS ISSUED TO RETURNING NIGERIANS
One of our correspondents learnt that the South African authorities went further to cancel visas that were issued to the returning Nigerians. A picture on Facebook showed a Nigerian passport with a cancelled South African visa as of September 10.

The Chairman, Nigerian Diaspora Commission, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said there was 15 hours delay before the flight left South Africa. She had earlier told journalists that the South African authorities brought new immigration rules before the affected Nigerians could be allowed to board the aircraft.

According to Dabiri-Erewa, the Federal Government is giving N40,000 worth of airtime to last them for two months as well as stipend of N10,000 for transport. She also said there were plans for the Bank of Industry to provide some money for the returnees to start small businesses.

Meanwhile, the Chief Operating Officer of Air Peace, Mrs Toyin Olajide, said the evacuation would cost the airline about N300m. Olajide said the cost would include payment of passenger service charge, aeronautical and other charges.

Mark my words, I haven't eaten anything this morning and I pray for your company this morning with a deep sense of gratitude for what you have done, you will prosper, whatever decision you need to make to become world leader, God will cause your leadership to take such decisions. You won't regret your decision to help our helpless countrymen. Yes, my direct blood relation may not be there, but I really feel inspired and grateful to your airline.

Too bad a situation...
I really feel for these guys...I can relate.
Starting up from the scratch is really a daunting task.

This shouldn't be lip service as usual..

They should ensure capital is actually given to them to start up something.

And I can categorically tell you 98% of Nigerians dont even know what cocaine, mets or other very hard drugs look like or are we responsible for their marijuana, cough syrup and tramadol aswell?...

It really baffles when they try to pin the hard drug charade on Nigeria as a whole which would make you think the moment you step into the airport, you are given cocaine and met as souvenir.
