Hits: 0

Musician , Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, has lambasted the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Executive Jets Services Limited , Sam Iwuajoku , for calling his team “ a bunch of useless people ”.

Reports had earlier reported that the airline was suspended by the Federal Government for flying the musician and his team to Abuja to attend a concert.

The Minister of Aviation , Hadi Sirika had announced the suspension during a Presidential Task Force briefing in Abuja on Monday .

Subsequently , the Chairman of the airline wrote a letter of apology to the minister explaining the circumstances surrounding the flight.

In the letter dated June 15 , 2020 , Iwuajoku said he gave the approval for the flight thinking the passenger was the Minister of Works and Housing , Babatunde Fashola.

The letter read in part, “Please the flight was to carry a judge to Abuja on Sunday, 14th , June 2020 as requested and the 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 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 manifests are always sent to me before departure .

“ When I went through the manifest and saw FASHOLA BABATUNDE , I thought it was the Honourable 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 . ”

But reacting via his Twitter handle on Tuesday afternoon , Naira Marley said , “ Do you know that over 20, 000 Marlians travel with executive jets a month ?

Earlier , Iwuajoku told our correspondent in a telephone interview that the flight was booked by a broker.

Meanwhile , a copy of the manifest of the flight sighted by our correspondent confirmed that the name , Babatunde Fashola, was a passenger on the flight.

Naira Marley further explained that the passenger , Babatunde Fashola, was indeed on the flight, revealing that his younger brother answers the name .

“ They asked for our names on the jet .

My name is Azeez Adeshina Fashola and my little brother’ s name is Moshood Babatunde Fashola, ” he said .
