Naira Marley: FG slams sanctions on Executive Jet Services

By Victor Akaa, Abuja

The Aviation Minister, Sen. Hadi Sirika has ordered the suspension of private airline, Executive Jet Services, from operating in the country with immediate effect.

James Odaudu Director, Public Affairs in a statement made available to News Headquarter said, the order was as a result of the fraudulent act by the airline to convey a popular musician Naira Marley, for a musical concert in Abuja.

“According to the Minister, the return flight that conveyed the musician to and from Abuja was originally approved by the Ministry of Aviation to convey Justice Adefope Okojie, an approval that was fraudulently used by the airline charter company.

“He said the conduct of the Executive JJet Services was a gross violation of the Presidential Task Force regulations and protocols which allowed only flights on essential services.

“The Minister announced the suspension order of the local airline during Monday’s briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

“Sirika reiterated that as much as government would encourage the operation and growth of all operators in the aviation industry, it would not condone actions that undermine government policies and constitute risks to public interests”, he concluded.
