Osun offers free train for Christmas, New Year holiday makers

Yuletide-To lessen the financial burden of transportations during the yuletide, the Osun State Government has offered to provide free Christmas and New year train services for its citizens‎ who would want to return home to celebrate with their relatives.

The Director of Bureau of Communication and Strategy in the Office of the Governor, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon who disclosed this in Osogbo, the state capital, stressed 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.

He added that the free train ride would be offered between Thursday and Sunday of Christmas and New year, urging indigenes of Osun to maximise the opportunity.

According to him, “The train would, by 11.00 A.M on Thursday the 24th of December 2015, convey people from Lagos to Osogbo. The return journey to Lagos from Osogbo will be Sunday the 27th of December by 11 A.M.

“The train will also resume the services of conveying people from Lagos to Osogbo for the New year celebration by 11 A.M Thursday December 31st 2014 and by same 11 A.M on Sunday 3rd of January 2016 return to Lagos from Osogbo”.

Okanlawon said the gesture by the Aregbesola-led administration is aimed at facilitating a stress-free homecoming for the people during the celebrations.
