We did not defy the EMIR OF KANO
Air Peace has refuted claims that it treated the Emir of Kano and the people of the state with disdain. The airline’s Chief Operating Officer, Mrs Toyin Olajide, made the comments in a statement on Friday. She said the airline did not delay a flight to Kano for the Emir.
According to a statement, delaying the flight would have caused “a very serious uproar in the media nationwide against both the airline and the Emir.” Olajide noted that by deciding to not delay the flight, Isa Bayero alleged that the airline had disrespected the Emir. The statement read in part, “We are, therefore, appalled that this statement would be made to incite such negativity towards the airline,” while reiterating the company’s respect for the Emir. “We make bold to say that the Emir of Kano we know would have been offended to know that a flight already taxiing was halted and delayed for over 40 minutes for him.”
