Executive Jets Apologises For Flying Naira Marley to Abuja For Concert
Executive Jets Services Limited, an aviation company, has tendered an apology for flying Naira Marley, a singer, to Abuja for a concert.
According to the private charter airline company CEO, he mistook the name Fashola on the manifest of the flight to mean that of Minister of Works and thought the flight was being operated to airlift Mr Babatunde Fashola and his entourage to Abuja instead of the popular musician Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley.
“We hereby apologize for the above flight, with your permit ref: PMA/ATMD/0175/V/V/1268 dated 11th June, 2020,” the letter read.
“Please the flight was to carry a Judge to Abuja on Sunday 14th, 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 13th 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 (he) 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.”
