The government of Osun state has announced the 30th edition of its free train service as it urges indigenes wishing to travel home to make use of the free train provided by the state government.
Thousands of Eid-el-fitr holiday makers are to benefit from the free train scheme as the government announced the train would move from Lagos to Osogbo, the state capital between Saturday and Tuesday.
The Commissioner for Industries, Commerce and Co-operatives, Hon. Ismaila Adekunle Jaiyeoba-Alagbada states that the free train service is in continuation of the commitment of Aregbesola’s administration to making life more meaningful for the people of the state.
The state government had, since 2011, been making similar arrangements for people of the state, to travel home during festive seasons.
