The Federal Government has suspended the operations of a private jet charter and aircraft maintenance firm, Executive Jet Services, for flouting COVID-19 regulations by flying Musician, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, to Abuja for a concert.
The minister for aviation, Hadi Sirika, who made this known during the daily COVID19 briefing said that the flight was approved for a different purpose.
Sirika said that the flight was initially approved to convey a serving Justice from Lagos to Abuja adding that the company has been suspended indefinitely for providing false information to convey the singer to Abuja for the show.
The Minister also said that the flight captain will equally be sanctioned for providing false information.
Recall that the development was triggered by the Naira Marley’s ‘Drive-in’ concert which was held on Saturday night at Jabi Lake Mall.
