The event, which was held at the Maxwell Khobe Cantonment in Jos, Plateau State, on 6 July 2024, was attended by the Minister of Defence, Mohammed Abubakar; Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State; and Governor Agbu Kefas of Taraba State.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, said the award was in recognition of Onyema’s continuous use of his airline and other enterprises to contribute to the development of Nigeria.

When Air Peace was established in 2014, Onyema announced a special initiative offering a rebate to support military personnel, where officers of the Nigerian Army were offered flight tickets at a reduced fare of N10,000.

In 2022, Air Peace further demonstrated its commitment to honouring military personnel by introducing a priority boarding policy for military officers, acknowledging their invaluable service to the country.

It is our way of saying thank you for all they are doing for the country,” Onyema stated, highlighting his dedication to motivating and supporting the nation’s military.

In September 2023, during his conferment with a Doctor of Management Science Degree by the Nigerian Defence Academy at its 33rd Convocation Ceremony in Kaduna, Onyema pledged to introduce rebates on flight tickets for retired officers of the Nigerian military.
