Executive Jet Services Limited, an aviation company, has tendered an apology for flying
Naira Marley, a singer, to Abuja for a concert.
Criticisms trailed the event, with many Nigerians calling for disciplinary measures against
the singer and the organizers.
The federal capital territory administration (FCTA) had sealed off the Jabi Lake mall, which
hosted the singer, for violating restrictions to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Speaking during the briefing of the presidential task force on COVID-19, Hadi Sirika,
minister for aviation, said the Executive Jet flight that conveyed Naira Marley for the
concert was approved for a different purpose.
He announced that the flight company had been suspended indefinitely, adding that the flight captain would be sanctioned for providing false information.
But in a letter addressed to Sirika on Monday, Sam Iwu, the company’s chief executive
officer, apologised over the incident.
He admitted that the flight was approved to convey a judge to Abuja but said the intended
passenger had found his way to Abuja with the help of another flight.
Iwu said his team later got an offer to convey another set of passengers to Abuja but
added that he was confused when he saw the name Fashola Babatunde.
The company’s chairman said he thought it was the minister of works and housing not
knowing that “it was a bunch of useless people”.
