Ebonyi Commissioner Tasks Nigerian Military On Peace, Unity

Ngozi Obichukwu, Ebonyi State Commissioner for Aviation and Transport Technology on Friday said the peace and unity of the country is wholly dependent on the Nigerian Military.

Obichukwu, made the disclosure while addressing the National Defence College Course 32 Study team who toured the Chuba Okadigbo’s International Airport, Onueke Ezza South Local Government Area of the state.

The Commissioner further revealed the committed efforts of the Governor, Francis Nwifuru, to launch an airline for the state as soon as the airport’s runway is fixed.

Speaking with the students, she said, “Over the years, the military in Nigeria has not changed and the unity of Nigeria is dependent on them. The efforts the military is putting in to ensure that the country is peaceful can never be over-emphasized.

“Over the years, without the military, I don’t know what would have happened to Nigeria.


“Our governor, Francis Nwifuru has the peace and unity of Nigeria at heart and he welcomes any programme that would promote peace and development of the country. The governor has a passion for making the Chuba Okadigbo International Airport functional.

“The contractor, IDC, that is working on it is on ground, making sure that by May next year, all the things needed for the runway are done. The governor is negotiating to have our own Ebonyi Airways, that’s our own flight. And as soon the runway is ready, we launch it” she said.

Obichukwu also inaugurated a legal department to tackle issues of crisis in the Aviation ministry, noting that: “The Inauguration of the legal department of the Chuba Okadigbo’s International Airport, is to ensure that there is peace, unity and order in the Aviation ministry.

“Even the issues of contractors not doing their work well or contractors abandoning their works, or contractors being overpaid, contractors not being paid at all, will be trashed from the ministry before it gets to the public” she added.

In a remark, the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in the state, Ben Odoh tasked the newly inaugurated legal department of the Chuba Okadigbo’s International Airport to establish a space law centre that may translate into an Aviation School to cover the southeast
