As the world continues to battle Coronavirus, the CEO of Air Peace airlines, Chief Allen Onyema has revealed what Nigerian leaders must learn from the pandemic.
Mr Onyema while distributing foodstuffs to Lagosians on Monday, said the death of many top officials across the world has shown that wealth is vanity.
He as well urged the state residents to obey the social distancing order of the government and stay safe.
“We, in Air Peace, decided that we must go to those communities where we have a preponderance of poor people; that is why we are coming to Makoko and Ajegunle, distributing thousands of bags of rice and thousands of cartons of noodles,” he said.
“It is our own small way of helping the government fight COVID-19 because people need to stay at home. We realised that a lot of these people practically depend on whatever they can get from day to day but then asking them to stay at home is the best way to fight this COVID-19.
“The private sector must be involved in this. If you have N2m, try and see if N1m can reach the other person; if you have N500,000, try and see if N100,000 can go to the other person. We are really in very extraordinary times; one way or the other, let us take the positives from the coronavirus.
“Now, people have discovered that wealth is nothing; you cannot take money to your grave; you must do everything you can to touch the life of the other man around you”.
