The Senator in a statement on Saturday, pledged to play key roles in the formulation of legislative framework and policies to save the sector.
Ubah said, “As a member of the Nigerian Senate Committee on Aviation, I will continue to play a key role in fashioning out legislative frameworks and policies that will protect our indigenous Airlines as well as checkmate unwholesome practices that threaten the survival and growth of the Nigerian aviation sector.”
He commended the Chairman of Air Peace Limited, Chief Allen Onyema, who just taken delivery of the third brand new Embraer 195-E2 aircraft at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Ubah explained that Onyema had paid for 13 aircraft and had also made an additional purchase of 17 aircraft, making it a total of 30 new aircraft.
“This is a historic milestone that has distinguished Air Peace as a trailblazer in the Nigerian aviation industry,” he added.
