I’ve no presidential interest — Air Peace boss

Against the backdrop of calls and subtle endorsement from a cross section of Nigerians to run for the 2023 presidency, the Chairman and CEO of Air Peace, Mr. Allen Onyema has said is a core businessman and will not dabble into politics.

Mr Onyema, a trained lawyer, reiterated that his humanitarian gestures stemmed from his desire to give back to the society as his own contribution to humanity and not a fillip to aspire to any political office.

Onyema made this known, Sunday while reacting to an online post by a group known as United People of Nigeria Initiative (UPNI) endorsing him for Nigeria’s presidency in 2023.

The Air Peace chairman who said the call was made in bad taste, repudiated the endorsement and those behind it while urging them to desist from such campaign in future.

In the statement he personally signed, Onyema said, “My attention has been drawn to an online post by a group that goes by the name United People of Nigeria Initiative (UPNI) endorsing me for Nigeria’s presidency in 2023. One Sir Wealthson Chukwudi was exposed on the post as President of the group.”

“I wish to state clearly that this man, UPNI and its promoters are not known to me directly or remotely and whatever they are saying has not come from me and will never come from me. I am a businessman and not a politician.

“My purpose is to impact humanity and I do not have to be President first before I can continue with what has become part of my essence. This is my nature. My motivations are different.
