The Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport, located in Umueri, Anambra East local government district, was inaugurated yesterday, April 30, by the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano, amid pomp and pageantry.
Nwando, from Azia in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State, is one of the pilots that landed an aircraft at the airport during the test run.
Nwando is a Computer Science graduate of Kwame Nkrumah University in Ghana. She later trained at an air school in South Africa where she was certified to fly commercial airplanes.
Nwando’s sister took to Twitter to hail her and Twitter users joined while retweeting the female pilot’s photo.
