Thank you Chief Onyema for your good gesture.
To whom much is given, much is expected.
May God make me someone that will be there to help my country also. Amen.

All Returnees, you are welcome back.

Anybody or any organization that want to support them should go ahead, but not that the returnees should be having some sense of entitlement.
We are that in the country that never left for anywhere, need support also.

He was praying for himself using that idiom. He meant that much should be given to him so that he can do much too. It's confusing except you read it over again.

Federal government and other individuals who own private jet should equally help Air Peace by using Nigeria Air planes and their private Jets to assist bring back more returnees. This man has tried and he doesn't need to wreck his business for us. Samfloxin says so

Even though the returnees are not entitled to any benefit, I must confess that I expected more from the government, especially as they can afford to give 5.5b naira to some old rich men to buy cars that they already have.

Thank God for their safe return. And I believe if more people and stakeholders identify with what the likes if Sanwoolu and TB Joshua is doimg, at least, these people will not be left to the elements with little or nothing to survive with. God bless us all.
