COMPLAINT OF DELAYED FLIGHT AND MALTREATMENT.
The Managing Director,
Air Peace.
Dear Sir,
My name is Adeyinka Moyosore kotoye. I purchased your return ticket, with booking reference: AP4L94 and E-ticket numbers 7102307422319/1 and 7102307422319/2, for Lagos/Abuja on Monday 12/07/2021, @ 7.20 pm and Abuja/Lagos on Tuesday 13/07/2021 @ 9.10 pm.
On Monday 12/07/2021, at about 1 pm, I received a mail from you that, the flight earlier scheduled for 7.20 pm, has been shifted to 8.50 pm.
Relying on this and in accordance with the Covid protocol, I arrived at the old domestic terminal at around 6.30 pm and checked in, only to notice on the boarding pass that, the flight with number P47126, was scheduled for boarding at 9.20 pm, instead of 8.50 pm earlier stated in your aforementioned mail.
At the waiting lounge, I also discovered that there had been, two earlier flights, which had been delayed and whose passengers had waited, for over three hours.
In any case, your airline kept me and other passengers waiting, at the airport, without any apology and/or explanations, for almost five (5) hours. There was no refreshment either and which is contrary to statutory stipulations. We didn’t board until 11.05 pm. We got to Abuja, at 12.10 am on Tuesday, 13/07/2021.
I had to sleep at the airport because it was too dangerous and risky for me, to proceed to my destination, at that time and at great risk to my health.
The above is in addition, to the fact that both the cabin crew and the pilot, were extremely rude and unprofessional.
I consider this situation, as untoward and a blemish, on your image, as a corporate entity and given the fact that I am on your frequent flyer scheme.
DEMAND.
1. A letter of apology, to be personally written, to all the passengers, on that flight and a copy to be published, in at least one [1] daily newspaper, within thirty (30) days of the receipt of this email.
2. Evidence of the email, mentioned above must be sent to me, by email within 48 hours.
3. The Letter must contain, an undertaking that no such future occurrence, will be occasioned again, at your instance/behest, either directly or through any of your staff.
Please be assured of my highest regards.
Yours faithfully,
A. M. Kotoye, FCTI.

Detained Binance executive, Gambaryan has access to quality medical care, Nigerian govt Reveals

 

A statement by Idris reads: “It has become necessary for the Federal Government of Nigeria to address claims that Binance Executive, Tigran Gambaryan is being held in unsavory prison conditions in Nigeria, or that his health is deteriorating.

 

 

“We would like to state that these allegations are false and should be ignored.

“Gambaryan is being held in lawful detention and has access to quality medical care whenever required.

“He also has full access to consular services from his home government.

 

 

“The Federal Government will not do anything to jeopardize his fundamental rights to lawful trial, and to quality care, including healthcare, even as he undergoes trial by the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

 

 

“It is worth reiterating that his detention is a court-ordered one, and only the court can alter the terms or direct his release.

 

 

“The Federal Government of Nigeria will continue to follow due process in its quest to bring Binance to justice — a legitimate sovereign quest that is similarly being pursued in several other countries around the world.

 

 

“This adherence to legal and diplomatic standards underscores Nigeria’s dedication to upholding justice and maintaining the integrity of its judicial processes.

 

 

“The executive is being treated with the utmost fairness, and his legal and human rights are being protected throughout the judicial proceedings.”
