Recall that United Nigeria Airlines has been granted an Air Operator Certificate. An air operator’s certificate is the approval granted by a national aviation authority to an aircraft operator to allow it to use aircraft for commercial purposes. The license was granted by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority.
Most Biafrans slammed Dr. Obiorah Okonkwo for using the Name "UNITED NIGERIA" stating that Nigeria is not United and as an Igbo Man he should have used another name instead of mocking the Biafran Agitation.
Most of the Igbos vowed never to board the Airline as the name is against the Agitation of Biafra and does not show he (the owner) has interest in the Agitation for freedom.
Some said he used the name UNITED NIGERIA so as to get quick approval as other Airline may be pending approval. He might also be denied License that was why he used the Name.
It is an open secret that the Nigerian Government may not approve a Name that will not support the unity of Nigeria since its from the Igbo tribe.
Some IPOB members asked the Airline to change the Name else they wouldn't board the Airline.
Igbo Newscaster and Promoter, Mazi Ifeanyi Nwosu got some terrifying comments after he board the United Nigeria flight to the southeast from Lagos.
Sharing the Video, He wrote: "Today I, Mazi Ifeanyi Nwosu(Onyeije) will be one of the 1st passengers to board United Nigeria Airline."
"As Onye Ije, I was so excited the day their Aircrafts arrived Nigeria in 2020.at least we can now have more Airlines for local trips."
"Pls let's patronize this Airline to make them grow like other Airlines especially in this critical time of nsogbu ụwa."
"Their fares are as low as 23k (Imagine)"
"God bless our brother and the CEO of this company Dr. Obiorah Okonkwo from Ogidi Anambra state. (Igbo nwere mmadụ hooha)"
"Just click www.flyunited nigeria.com and book ur tickets at the comfort of ur home/office.(Nke a bụkwanụ nke anyị) "
"CONGRATULATIONS DR. OBIORAH OKONKWO"
