A statement by Anthony Chiejina, Group Head, Branding and Corporate Communications, Dangote Group has been circulated refuting claims that Alhaji Aliko Dangote is a part owner of Executive Jets Services Ltd and further denied ownership of the Bombardier Challenger 605 with registration number 5N-EXS.
The statement reads:
“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. The 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.”
