The Osun Government says it will provide free train ride for its indigenes from Lagos to Osogbo during the Eid-el-Fitr holiday.

The Commissioner for Industries, Commerce and Co-operatives, Ismaila  Jaiyeoba-Alagbada said the free train would leave Iddo terminus in Lagos to Osogbo on Saturday June 24 and return to Lagos on Tuesday June 27.

He said the train would also pick passengers along Ogun and Oyo corridor.

Jaiyeoba-Alagbada said the service was in continuation of the commitment of Gov. Rauf Aregbesola’s administration to making life more meaningful for the people of the state.

According to him,  the free train service, which commenced in 2011 during festive periods, is also aimed at facilitating a stress-free homecoming for the people during the festival.

The commissioner asked indigenes of the state who wish to travel home to celebrate Eid-el-Fitr to make use of the opportunity of the free train service.
