Government to offer free train ride from Lagos to Abuja
Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has announced that the Federal Government will offer free train ride to Nigerians from Lagos to Abuja for the next three months.
Amaechi made the announcement at the 14th edition of The Future Awards Africa (TFAA), held at The Balmoral Event Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos.
According to him, the intention is to introduce the new service to travellers.
