The Federal Government has suspended flight operations of ExecuJet for flying a hip-hop artiste, Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, from Lagos to Abuja for a musical concert.
The Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika announced the suspension at the daily briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
Sirika said the plane which flew the artiste to Abuja was arranged to fly an Appeal Court Judge, Justice Adefope Okogie from Lagos to Abuja.
“The operation is a clear violation of our approval which we take seriously. It seems this is becoming a norm. This is the second time. ExecuJet service is hereby suspended indefinitely and they will face the law.
“The captain will also be sanctioned for giving wrong information to the control tower.
It seems also that people are not tired of trying our resolve and we are not tired of living up to our responsibilities. Governance is a serious matter,” Sirika declared.
