Aliko Dangote
Multibillionaire and richest black man in the world who is also the President and Chief Executive Officer of Dangote Industries Limited, Alhaji Dr. Aliko Dangote, has come out to refute the allegations that he is a co-owner of Executive Jets Services Ltd, an aviation company whose operating license was recently suspended indefinitely by the Ministry of Aviation after flouting lockdown guidelines for safety when it conveyed a popular musician, Naira Marley, to Abuja for a concert.

A statement by the Group Head, Branding and Corporate Communications of Dangote Industries Limited, Anthony Chiejina, repudiated claims that Alhaji Dr. Aliko Dangote is part owner of Executive Jets Services Limited and further denied ownership of the Bombardier Challenger 605 with registration number 5N-EXS.

Chiejina, in the statement, 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 Industries Limited 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.”
