Air Peace to support family of ex-spokesman, Chris Iwarah

CHAIRMAN, Air Peace Limited, Mr. Allen Onyema has promised that the airline would cater adequately for the family of late Corporate Communication Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah who died on June 7th, 2019 in a ghastly motor accident at Mangoro area of Dopemu along the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway in Lagos

Mr. Allen while speaking at the burial ceremony of the late Chris in his home town, Eku in Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta state on Saturday described the death of Chris as one of the saddest day in his life and explained that staff of the airline are finding it hard to come to term with the demise of the ex-spokesman whom he described as a consummate lawyer, journalist and cooperate communication expert who worked tirelessly to positively project the image of the airline.

The Air Peace Chairman, who led a delegation of over 50 members of staff of the airline to the burial ceremony, recounted how he received the sad news from his wife on the fateful day and rushed back to Lagos from his home town in Anambra state to coordinate the medical service been given to his spokesman affirming that the company was planning to immediately to fly Mr. Chris Iwarah abroad for further treatment before he gave up the ghost.

Mr. Onyema said “l am yet to see a young man with the quality of my wonderful late friend, Chris. He is one whom l delegates multiple tasks to and goes to sleep knowing that those assignments are done deals. He exudes passion for whatever you commit into his hands to carry out. He was super intelligent, a hard worker, multi-skilled, extremely dedicated”.

He said “l close from work by 2.am and each time l look through my cameras, l see Chris still moving from one office to the other at such time just to make sure that everything is going according to plan even those outside the purview of his office. If there is one thing l admired most about him, it is his fearlessness, he is a soldier who takes the bullets for the company most times, he looks at me and tells me, Mr. Chairman, with all due respect Sir, l disagree with you on this and this is the way l think we have to do this things and always, his suggestions and advice are right”

According to Mr. Allen, “on that fateful day, l was already preparing to fly Chris oversea for the best medical services he could get anywhere, but God knows best, we cannot question him. I will ensure his family gets the best of support in life and l will lend supports to anything that Chris represents.”

He added that Nigeria has lost an upwardly mobile, fearless and courageous future leader whose interest in championing justice for the oppressed and less privilege and victimized members of the society is legendary.

In his tribute, Editor of Guardian Newspaper Limited, Mr. Abraham Ogbodo who spoke on behalf of Atamu Social Club of Nigeria, a foremost social cultural group of the Urhobo nation said few youth with the sterling quality of the late Chris Iwarah exist in Nigeria just as he said he lack words to describe his present feelings.

The Air Peace Chairman, the company Chief Operating Officer, Mrs. Oluwatoyin Olajide, Chief of Finance and Administration, Mrs. Ejiroghene Eghagha and President, Group CEO Transcorp Hilton PLC, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo in company of the airline staff also paid a condolence visit to the parent of the late Air Peace image maker, Chief Solomon and Mrs. Rose Iwarah in their family compound along the old Sapele road.
