Don Adinuba commended Dr Okonkwo for following the footsteps of another great ambassador of Anambra State, Chief Allen Onyema of Air Peace Airlines, despite the current turbulent state of the global airline business.
The release expressed confidence that United Nigeria Airlines will take the aviation industry by storm, as Air Peace has done, especially with regard to the safety record, schedule integrity and quality ground and inflight services.

The release promised the willingness of the Anambra State Government and its residents to work with it to achieve its goal.
It was gathered that Dr Okonkwo, who is a chieftain of the PDP and governorship aspirant under the in the 2021 Anambra guber election and the Sosoliso chairman, Late Chief Victor Ikwuemesi hail from Ogidi, Idemmili North Local Government Area of the state.
