Airline Owner claims he had no idea he was boarding Naira Marley. He thought the passenger was Babatunde Fashola

Executive Jets Services Limited, an airline suspended by the Federal Government for flying Musician, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, to Abuja to attend a concert, has written a letter of apology to the government over what it described as a “mix-up”.

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

In a letter dated June 15, 2020, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the airline, Sam Iwuajoku, said he gave the approval for the flight thinking the passenger was the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola.

In the letter entitled, “Re: Flight For 13/06/2020 Done By Executive Jets Services Ltd To Abuja”, and directed to Sirika, Iwuajoku explained that he did not know the said passengers were “a bunch of useless people”.

Also, in a telephone interview with The PUNCH on Tuesday morning, the airline owner revealed that he gave a discount thinking the beneficiary was the Works Minister.

“We have learned our lessons and we will be more careful going forward,” he said.

So the question on our minds now is, what exactly would make them believe this? Where is the resemblance? This is starting to sound like another “snake swallowed the money” story
