"We Nearly Crashed On That Flight" Naira Marley As He Fires Back At Executive Jets For Call Him “A Bunch Of Useless People”

Nigerian singer, Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley, has slamed the Chairman and CEO of Executive Jets Services Limited, Sam Iwuajoku, for calling his team "a bunch of useless people"

As indicated by reports, the airline was suspended by the Federal Government for flying the singer and his team to Abuja to attend a concert at Abuja.

On Monday, Hadi Sirika, the Minister of Aviation had declared the suspension during  a Presidential Task Force briefing in Abuja.

Later, the Chairman of the airline wrote a letter of apology to minister clarifying the conditions encompassing the flight.

Iwuajoku stated in the letter dated on 15th of June, 2020, that he gave the approval for the flight thinking the passenger was the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola.

The letter read in part, “Please the flight was to carry a judge to Abuja on Sunday, 14th, June 2020 as requested and the permit was granted based on the application but unfortunately, when I called the Judge on Saturday morning to inform him that we have the permit, he then said he has reached Abuja already with a different flight that someone gave him a lift to Abuja.

“So, on Saturday morning, 13th June 2020, my staff called me that they have a charter flight to Abuja, and that the passengers are already in the lounge. As a rule, passenger manifests are always sent to me before departure.

“When I went through the manifest and saw FASHOLA BABATUNDE, I thought it was the Honourable Minister of Works going to Abuja with his men. So, we decided to do the flight since he is a serving minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I didn’t know that it was a bunch of useless people.”

In response, Naira Marley encouraged his fans not to patronize the airline operator for regarding him as useless.

“Do you know that over 20,000 Marlians travel by executive jets a month. We won’t be using your useless airline again for calling us useless. Thank God we didn’t crash on that flight sha because we nearly did”.

By the way, we didn’t book the flight ourselves.

“They asked for our names on the jet though and your pilot is a Marlian and everybody there is a Marlian too. My name is Azeez Adeshina Fashola and my lil brothers name is Moshood Babatunde Fashola and you were begging me to tag y’all.” He tweeted.
