Nigerian Chikelu inspirers African aviation players to employ cohesion in making industry successful

By Carine Kayitesi

Africa’s aviation sector would be among the leading service providers in the industry if all players are committed to seek solutions by having cohesion, Theodore O.Chikelu, JET Afrique Aviation Services’ Chief Executive Officer has revealed.

Chikelu was speaking last week during the African Hotel and aviation Investment forum which took place in Rwanda-Kigali from October 10th to 12th, 2017.

The forum brought together all aviation and hotels players and partners in Africa to discuss how improvements in investments can be made to make both industries more profitable in the future.

Chikelu appreciated the way Rwanda has moved towards effective aviation services after the 1994 Genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi and congratulated His Excellency President of The Republic Paul Kagame for the efforts to achieve a lot in pushing ahead the social economic development of Rwanda including airline industry.

“As an individual coming to Rwanda for the first time, having heard about stories of the Genocide, etc…, you would not be thinking that Rwanda is still willing for the attractiveness after what happened just along ago, it means Rwanda is a success story, I am very proud of Rwandan people and I admire the Rwandan spirit, your President is an Extra-Ordinary Man and indeed, I can actually say I wish my own people in Nigeria to behave the same way,” Chikelu said.

“There is so much positivity, there is so much growth, there is so much integration, and now in such a structure, Rwanda has grown consistently as an amazing global market  in so many ways going beyond Tourism, going beyond the Hospitality Industry and so many aspects of development, your country is showing the example that Africa can succeed.” He added.

Cohesion as main pathway

Chikelu revealed that there is nothing like cohesion between African aviation players to push the development ahead.

“We found that at the end of the day we cannot succeed when we do not trust ourselves, you cannot call a white man to assist when you do not like your African black brother, so, what is key, is for us to recognize that cohesion is the first step, and understanding is next step.” Chikelu said.

He said that Africa needs to think towards cohesion to have a better completion to make aviation industry more successful.

“Africa needs to think towards cohesion, our airline industry can suddenly grow, the problem we have is very simple: not enough trust, not enough thinking of how to support each other, in Africa we have to be thinking how to support each other, if I have meat and you have a fish, I give you meat and you give me fish, if you have Cotton and I have Cacao, we can exchange,” Chikelu stressed.

He said that Self-phobia cannot help people to grow significantly, and advised aviation players in Africa to simplify the process and train personnel who operate in airline industry to make it grow successfully.
