Tinubu declares free train ride for Nigerians until December 31 to mark first anniversary

President Bola Tinubu has announced that passengers can now take free rides on the newly commissioned Abuja Rail Transport System till December 31.

The president disclosed this on Wednesday as he inaugurated the metro rail project in Abuja to mark his one year in office.

FCT minister Nysom Wike, at a ministerial press briefing, said the Abuja light rail would operate for two months for free from Tuesday.

However, the president pleaded with the minister to extend the free rides so that residents would have hope and reasons to celebrate.

Mr Tinubu said, “Our dear landlord and his team, I heard you saying two months free ride. I appeal to you to make it till the end of the year. Since today you’re not going to charge me, that will give the people hope and reasons to celebrate.”
