As I embark on this flight, en route to Abuja, I can feel the weight of history upon my shoulders; I am about to witness another pivotal moment in the annals of our great country. This flight holds particular significance for me, as it marks my first local flight in 23 years. Determined to break the jinx and overcome my phobia for Nigerian flights, I am acutely aware of the importance of the event that awaits me.
The significance of this occasion is magnified by the fact that the individual taking on this esteemed position is the first Lagosian to do so. With his impressive track record as a reference point, there is a sense of anticipation that Nigeria may be on the brink of an economic Eldorado under his leadership.
As I settle into my seat, my heart palpitates and my palm sweaty. The hours leading up to the flight were filled with uncertainty, as we endured a nearly six-hour delay due to a cancellation.
However, at 8 p.m., we took off and what a smooth flight it was, antithetical to my initial trepidation, skepticism, and dubiety about Nigerian flight.
Thanks to the crew of Air Peace for their professionalism, but they could use a little less sugar in the food served to first-class passengers.
As we soar through the night sky, I reflect on the significance of this moment; I am honored to be a part of this historic occasion and to witness firsthand the wind of change that is sweeping across our great nation.
ABUJA, HERE I COME
