There would be a free train ride from Lagos to Osogbo on Friday by 11am, the Osun State government has announced.
A statement by the Ministry of Commerce, Cooperative, Industry and Empowerment on Wednesday said the free train ride is to convey people coming for the Easter festival from Lagos to Osogbo.
A return train will depart Osogbo for Lagos on Monday by 11 am.
The statement reads: “This tradition of free train ride as introduced by the Rauf Aregbesola administration is aimed at facilitating the easy movement of the citizenry wherever they are.
“And this programme takes care of both Islamic and Christian festivities. Since its commencement, we can say confidently it has been a boost to the economy of the state.
“Therefore, it is the wish of government that our people from Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states would seize this window of opportunity by Aregbesola’s government to visit home and celebrate with their relatives.”
