“We are full of joy that you achieved this feat. That is why we said we should acknowledge you.

“We are impressed with what you did. You are part of our national pride and we appreciate what you have done.

“For this, we have decided to offer you a free Business Class return ticket to London,” Onyema told the travel content creator.

Nubi, in return, expressed gratitude to the management of Air Peace for the offer and lauded the airline for its recently launched London service. The travel blogger and curator of Oremi Travels has been getting accolades for being the first woman to achieve such a feat, driving from the UK to Nigeria.

Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu presented her with a car when he hosted her shortly after she arrived in Nigeria. He also appointed her as a state tourism ambassador.
