Executive Jet Services, which convey popular musician, Naira Marley to Abuja for a musical concert has had its license suspended by the Federal Government.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, who ordered the suspension of private airline from operating in the country with immediate effect, added that the return flight which conveyed the musician to and from Abuja was originally approved by the Ministry of Aviation to convey Justice Adefope Okojie, saying that the approval that was fraudulently used by the airline charter company.

In a press release issued in Abuja on Monday by the Director of Public Affairs of the ministry, James Odaudu, Sirika said that the conduct of Executive Jet Services was a gross violation of the Presidential Task Force, PTF, on COVID-19 regulations and protocols, which allowed only flights on essential services.

Making the announcement of the suspension order of Executive Jet Services during Monday’s briefing by the PTF on COVID-19 in Abuja, Sirika reiterated that as much as government would encourage the operation and growth of all operators in the aviation industry, it would not condone actions that undermine government policies and constitute risks to public interests.
