Nigerian artiste, Naira Marley has responded to the operators of aviation company, Executive Jets for referring to him and his team as useless. He has further threatened to boycott the airline and ask his followers to do same.
Lagos Today had earlier reported that the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Dr. Sam Iwu in a statement and apologised to the Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika for the company’s involvement in breaching the orders of the federal government.
A part of the statement read, “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”.
Irritated by the use of ‘useless people’ to describe him and others who were on the flight, Naira Marley took to twitter to debunk the claim of ignorance by the company.
He wrote, “Lool they asked for our names on the jet though and looooooooool ur 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 u was begging me to tag y’all”
“Do u know that over 20,000 Marlians travel with executive jet a month. We won’t be using ur useless airline again for calling us useless. Thank God we didn’t crash on that flight sha because we nearly did. BTW We didn’t book the flight ourselves.”Follow us on social media
