Alhaji Aliko Dangote has denied reports that he is a co-owner of Executive Jets Services Ltd.
Ekohotblog recalls that Executive Jet’s operating license was recently suspended indefinitely by the Ministry of Aviation after flouting lockdown guidelines for flying Nigerian artiste, Naira Marley and his crew to Abuja for a concert.
A statement by Anthony Chiejina, Group Head, Branding, and Corporate Communications, Dangote Group further denied ownership of the Bombardier Challenger 605 with registration number 5N-EXS.
He said, “Our attention has been drawn to an online publication which alleged that our President/CE, Aliko Dangote is a co-owner of the Executive Jets Services Ltd, a private airline based in Lagos. We hereby refute this allegation in its entirety, as Aliko Dangote has no stake or vested interest in the Executive Jets Services Ltd.”
“The said aircraft Bombardier Challenger 605 with registration number 5N-EXS does not belong to Aliko Dangote.
“Dangote Group only keeps its fleet of aircraft in the hangars operated by Executive Jets Services Ltd just as others also avail themselves of the hangar services. The general public is hereby advised to disregard this unfounded and misleading report.”
Meanwhile, Ekhotblog recalls that the Ministry of Aviation suspended ExecuJet airline indefinitely for false information and for flying Naira Marley to Abuja for a concert on June 12.
