A lot of people in Nigeria will never forget 2005 and the Sosoliso plane crash that claimed 107 lives. This was on December 10, 2005. 60 of them had been students from Loyola Jesuit College in Abuja and out of the 60, Kechi Okwuchi was the only survivor. With burns covering 60% of her body and over 75 surgeries later, Kechi’s story is one of perseverance and determination.

Watch her story below....

Kechi Okwuchi, one of the only two survivors of the crash is using a recorded video as a medium to get through to the current President of Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan with an appeal for something to be done about the aviation industry in Nigeria.

In the video she says “Your Excellency, there are many accidents and many deaths that happen in Nigeria that cannot be controlled – diseases, car accidents, even just walking on the road. But this, this is a kind of loss that can be controlled. And I’m talking about the aviation industry in Nigeria”

Kechi Okwuchi was a student of Loyola Jesuit College, Abuja, but is now a student of a private Catholic university, University of St. Thomas, in Houston, Texas, USA. She spoke at the Memorial/Symposium and Presentation for the “60 Angels Memorial Staff Residence” in Abuja in honour of the 60 students of the school who died in the crash.

You are a strong lady and you will continue to grow stronger and stronger everyday of your life.

Lets HOPE the President does simething about our aircraft carriers that are no better than flying coffins.

I am delighted you are in a country where your injuries can be treated, especially as I know you will be needing skin grafts for a long time.

Maybe one day Nigeria will not only have an air fleet that will be the envy of the world but also adequate medical facilities that can cater for such horrific burns like you suffered.

Look after yourself and do Nigeria proud wherever you are. As they say  WHERE THERE IS LIFE THERE IS HOPE.

Lets just pray that one day there will be HOPE for Nigerians living in Nigeria.

Gid Bless.

This video was a difficult one for me to watch…….

Wow..!!!  What a very intelligent, strong and determined lady.
I thank those that helped this lady.
Those that are looting the money are the only ones that can afford medical care and good living.

Miss. Kechi Okwuchi you have your life that’s the most important thing.
You are beautiful and I am glad you are doing ok..
Be assured you are not alone.

Only divine intervention will save Nigeria.

You should be lashing out at the politicians….

They are not only idiots but criminals.

So Sad! I just don't know why some human politicians have a heart of stone! To embezzle the nation money by you and your family is evil. God will never forgive you and your kids who eat 1kobo that does not belong to you.
Im glad for the Ngerians, home and abroad who saw to your quick recovery. im so happy that you survived to tell your story
