@SoniaUzama said that their dad would have sent such news to different WhatsApp groups among other places. She said:

"My dad would have been super happy today. The BC he would have sent wont be here. He most likely would have sent it to newspaper houses and all his WhatsApp groups (yes he is that dramatic). I really wish he was here to see my sister’s name and face everywhere."

To corroborate that she was indeed the first female pilot, a popular ICT lawyer, Martin Beck Nworah, said she did an amazing job.
