“We are however particularly grateful and appreciative of the support given by some very patriotic Nigerians,” Chief Audu Ogbe stated.

“In particular, we want to thank Mr Allen Onyema and Aliko Dangote for the personal support they gave to the stranded Nigerians. Aiko’s 100,000 Naira to each of them, and MTN’s recharge credit of 25,000 Naira each are extremely remarkable gestures of good-heartedness and patriotism. Only God Almighty will reward them for these efforts.”
