The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, said this during the Presidential Task Force briefing in Abuja on Monday.
He said, “The operation is a clear violation of our approval which we take very seriously. It seems this is becoming a norm. This is the second time. So, Executive Jet Services is hereby suspended indefinitely and they will face the law.
The minister said the government would henceforth be stricter in granting approvals for private flights.
He said, “The person on that flight conducted a concert. We approved a flight, certainly not for a musician. The flight was approved to convey Honourable Justice Adefope Okogie from Lagos to Abuja and then back to Lagos for an official assignment.
“In this challenging time, in our wisdom, we decided that judiciary was part of the essential services. Moving a judge from Lagos to Abuja was in order.”
