Recall that the Jet company that transported Nairamarley to Abuja had claimed that they thought the Nigerian Musician, Nairamarley was the same person as the the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, due to the names they share.
In reaction to the letter written by the CEO of Executive Jets Service Limited, that states the above claim, the Federal Minister, Babatunde Fashola had come out openly to declare that he has not travelled out of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, since March 22.
Consequently, the suspension of the Jet company had been announced by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika
Fashola’s Special Adviser on Communications, Hakeem Bello, was said to have released a statement that says;
“The attention of the Office of the Honourable Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola SAN, has been drawn to a letter signed by the Chairman/CEO of Executive Jets Services Limited, Dr Sam Iwuajoku concerning a flight it operated to Abuja last weekend.
“For purposes of clarity and in order to set the records straight, the Hon. Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola SAN, has not travelled out of Abuja since March 22, 2020, when he returned there after an inspection tour of the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway construction work and a visit to Lagos, before the lockdown.
“The decision of the Hon. Minister not to travel was taken in strict compliance with the Federal Government’s ban on inter-state travels as part of efforts to control the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is therefore ridiculous for Dr Iwuajoku to attempt to link the Hon. Minister with any non-compliant flight.” He added.
