FGLifts Ban On Private Jet Agency That Flew Naira Marley To Abuja: The Nigerian government have lifted the ban on Execujets for flying Naira Marley and Big Brother star, Kim Oprah, for a show in Abuja.
A few months ago, Naira Marley’s concert in Abuja had sparked outrage after he defied lockdown orders by traveling from Lagos to Abuja. In reaction, the Nigerian Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, placed a ban on the flight agency, Executive Jets Services Limited for flying the singer and his crew to the concert.
The CEO of the agency later in an apology letter disclosed that he was unaware of the identities of the passengers and assumed it to be the Minister of Power, Babatunde Fashola, who also bears a similar name to Naira Marley.
He also stated that he wouldn’t have the flight to take place if he had known they(Naira Marley& his crew) were “useless” people. An irate Naira Marley also took to social media to slam the agency and asked his fans to boycott the airline company.
However, the ban placed on the agency has been lifted. Hadi Sirika made this known at the daily briefing on the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.
