To facilitate smooth holiday travel for citizens, President Bola Tinubu has granted approval for a 50% reduction in interstate transport fares and free train rides for Nigerians traveling between December 21, 2023, and January 4, 2024.

Dele Alake, Chairman of the inter-ministerial committee on presidential intervention, disclosed this announcement at the Aso Rock Villa.

The federal government, in collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation, will coordinate efforts with transporters, road transport unions, and the Nigerian Railway Corporation to ensure the successful implementation of this special presidential initiative.

He adds that air travel is not included in this initiative, as the focus is solely on benefiting the masses.

The Minister of Transportation clarified that the intervention specifically addresses luxurious buses operating on 22 designated routes during this period.

Good as as how? You think the buses from Lagos to whatever,verse versa will slash their prices considering the fact that nothing has changed in terms of fuel price. Make it make sense.

It would have been better to say BAT in talk to subsidize cost of traveling with some selected transport firm.
Or is he planning to use the the Nigeria Air which only operate in mirage, or Nigeria transport and logistics services which never exist

Why not government subsidize petrol or rice (which is beyond the reach of the common man right now) instead? That would have a greater impact on Nigerians in this festive season than subsidizing those that wants to travel by public transport.

Hope they've collaborated with Transport companies to implement this because the problem of this country's leadership is always implementation of leadership.

BTW if you have a car you want to move to the east or west this season and you need a professional driver kindly mention or DM.
