The Personal Assistant on Social Media to President Muhammadu Buhari, Lauretta Onochie, has mocked Executive jets over its claim that it mistook popular Nigerian singer, Naira Marley for the Minister of Works, Babatunde Raji Fashola, during his trip to Abuja.
Recall that the airline while reacting to the controversy surrounding Naira Marley‘s concert in Abuja in a letter forwarded to the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, apologized for airlifting Naira Marley and others.
The Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of the airline, Mr Sam Iwuajoku, further stated that the airline airlifted Naira Marley due to a case of mistaken identity.
He added that there was no indication from the names in the manifest that Naira Marley was part of the flight, as they thought it was Minister of Works, Mr Babatunde Fashola.
The names listed on the manifest are: Adewunmi Segun, Chinonso Opara, Fashola Babatunde, Fashola Adeshina and Adeyeye Tobi.
Onochie in her reaction to the letter described the statement by the airline as an act of lawlessness.
The Presidential aide who shared the picture of Naira Marley alongside Fashola said: “We thought Naira Marley was Buhari’s minister, Fashola – Executive Jets Services”1
“Me: Sure, and when he appeared to board the flight, Naira Marley looked exactly like Hon. Minister, Fashola. Lawlessness.”

Who is fooling who? We are not all fools. #Lawlessness
