Mr. Aregbesola said the measure was part of its Government’s continued commitment to the welfare and well-being of the people of the State.
In a statement by the Ministry of Commerce, Cooperative, Industry and Empowerment on Wednesday, the Government said “the free train ride would convey people coming for the Easter festival from Lagos to Osogbo on Friday 25 by 10am.
“A return train will depart Osogbo to Lagos on Monday, March 28 by 11 am,” it said
“The Government therefore enjoined indigenes of the state to maximise the advantage the free train ride offers them to visit home and enjoy the celebration.
“And this programme takes care of both Islamic and Christian festivities. Since its commencement, we can say confidently that it has been a boost to the economy of the state.
“It is this ease during festival periods that informed the introduction of the scheme by Governor Aregbesola.
“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.”
