Executive Jets Services Limited has written a letter of apology to the Federal Government after its airline was suspended for flying Musician, Naira Marley, and his crew to Abuja to attend a concert.

KanyiDaily had reported that the FG suspended ExecuJet after it conveyed Naira Marley, and ex-BB Naija housemate, Kim Oprah, to Abuja for drive-through concert which violated the measures put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Reacting to the suspension in a letter dated June 15, 2020, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the airline, Sam Iwuajoku, apologized for the carriage, noting that the flight was approved due to a name misconception.

According to him, he felt the name ‘Fashola Babatunde’ was that of the Honorable Minister of Works, and not some “bunch of useless people”.

“We hereby apologize for the above flight, with your permit ref: FMA/ATMD/0175/V/V/1268 dated 11′ June, 2020, the letter reads.

“Please the flight was to carry a Judge to Abuja on Sunday 14′, 2020 as requested and permit was granted based on the application, but unfortunately when I called the Judge on Saturday morning to inform him that we have the permit, he then said that he has reached Abuja already with a different flight that someone gave him a lift to Abuja.

“So on Saturday morning 13” June, 2020 my staff called me that they have a charter flight to Abuja and that the passengers are already in the lounge as a rule passenger manifest is always sent to me before any departure, when I went through the manifest and I saw FASHOLA BABATUNDE. I thought it was the Honorable Minister of Works going to Abuja with his men, so we decided to do the flight since is a serving minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I didn’t know that it was a bunch of useless people.

“We are very sorry for this mistake and we promise that this would not happen again.”

KanyiDaily had also reported that the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) sealed off Jabi Lake Mall “indefinitely” for hosting Naira Marley’s concert in violation of the ban on social gathering placed by the government to minimize the spread of the coronavirus.
