A Nigerian man has taken to social media to narrate how he discovered the meaning of the word ‘Iberiberism’ during his unpleasant experience at the Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport in Owerri, Imo state.
According to Oladunjoye Tunde, the power outage at the airport which lasted for over three hours left many flight passengers stranded. The airport roof was also said to be leaking despite ongoing repairs.
“For the benefit of those who do not know, today, I discovered the full meaning of Iberiberism in Owerri.
“At the Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport, there was power outage for over three hours. We were all sweating like Easter Fowls! At a point I have to ask Angela Nkwo-Akpolu to leave to save her from further heat. We walked past the metal detector that what was not in use due to absence of electricity. The departure hall was in darkness and people had to sit outside and some actually sat on the edge of the tarmac.
“When the Air Peace flight scheduled to take off from Owerri at 5pm arrived Owerri at about 5.45pm, people who were already outside on the tarmac refused to go back to the Departure Hall in order for their tickets to be checked before boarding.
“The Airport was leaking seriously, even as repair works were ongoing.
“My people that’s it: Iberiberism!
