The Federal government of Nigeria has announced the lift of the ban placed on the Executive Jets Air Services.
Recall that the airline service was suspended by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika for violating the licence approved to operate a flight from Lagos to Abuja and back to Lagos.
The flight which the service got license for was meant to convey a judge but it later conveyed the musician, Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley and his crew despite the restriction on interstate movements and flights.
The minister disclosed this in Abuja during the briefing by members of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
“Today, we lifted the ban on Executive Jets Air Services Limited. They have complied substantially with all of our imposed sanctions. They have paid parts of the fine and they have brought out a payment plan for the balance. So, we lifted the ban and they will continue to do their business. These are not punitive, they are things to make our industry work better and keep all of you safe,” he stated.
