A young female Nigerian lady, Nwando Okplaeke, has been praised by Nigerians for being the first female pilot to land an aircraft at the new Anambra International Airpot on Friday, April 30.
The lady’s sister with the Twitter handle @SoniaUzama also rejoiced on social media as she said that it was such a proud sister moment.
In one of her tweets, the lady said that their dad would have been so proud of Nwando if he was still alive.
@SoniaUzama said that their dad would have sent such news to different WhatsApp groups among other places. She said:
“My dad would have been super happy today. The BC he would have sent wont be here. He most likely would have sent it to newspaper houses and all his WhatsApp groups (yes he is that dramatic). I really wish he was here to see my sister’s name and face everywhere.”
To corroborate that she was indeed the first female pilot, a popular ICT lawyer, Martin Beck Nworah, said she did an amazing job.
