Jonathan Commends Arik For Bringing Victorious Super Eagles Home


President Goodluck Jonathan has sent a letter of appreciation to the Chairman of Arik Air, Chief Johnson Arumemi-Ikhide, for providing the aircraft that brought the national football team, the Super Eagles, from South Africa after the African Cup of Nations 2013.

It would be recalled that the Super Eagles flew in to Abuja on Tuesday afternoon aboard a special Arik Air chartered flight.

In the letter, President Jonathan said, “Your very kind gesture of providing the aircraft that brought our gallant and victorious team and officials back home from South Africa was an act of high patriotism worthy of note.”

He expressed confidence that Arumemi-Ikhide “will continue to avail the nation of your worthy endowments in the future.”

The president challenged “others to emulate your demonstration of enduring faith in Nigeria.”
