Following evacuation of second batch of 320 Nigerians from South Africa, High Chief Kehinde Kalejaiye has lent his voice to the call for the conferment of national honor on the founder and chairman of Air Peace Airline, Chief Allen Onyema for his philanthropic gesture and show of patriotism to Nigerians in distress.

High Chief Kalejaiye who is the traditional head of Otumara, Apapa road, Ojo-oniyun and it’s environs in the Lagos Mainland of Lagos state made this call in his press statement made available exclusively to in Lagos on Wednesday.

In the statement, he said, “In the face of a staggered economy, an individual out of his freewill decided to spend fortunes to save lives and restore our national pride, nothing befits such person than for the country to recognise such kind gesture.

Chief Allen Onyema deserves a national honour not only for restoring Nigeria’s battered image by the South Africans but for saving lives and property of Nigerians from further destruction in the attack that had claimed over 118 Nigerians and millions of dollars worth of property.”

While reaffirming his call for sanction on South African government and his people, High Chief Kalejaiye urges Nigerian government not to be perturbed by the hypocritical apologies of the South African government.

He added that, “It is on record how South Africans have been hostile to fellow Africans.

For me, the attack was a deliberate act to send packing all Africans living and working in their country not minding the brotherliness Africans share and known for.

This recent attack is one too much therefore I want to urge the Federal government not to take it lightly and ensure that the South Africans and their government feel the consequence of such devilish act.

Nigerians cannot be disgraced and dehumanized in the name of keeping ties with a country that sees nothing good in our nationals.”

High Chief Kalejaiye however call on the Federal government on improve on its efforts geared towards providing jobs for Nigerian youths as he said, “ If our youths are gainfully employed, there won’t be any need for them to seek greener pastures in an hostile country.

The social investment programmes of President Muhammadu Buhari is commendable but it is yet to fill the poverty gap and create the needed employment for Nigerians.

If Nigeria returns to his glorious days, South Africa and other countries in Africa will bow before it and this can only happen only if we have a responsive and responsible leadership that values it’s citizenry.”
