Okanlawon said the gesture was in line with the current administration’s commitment to the welfare of the citizenry.

“Government, therefore, enjoins indigenes of the state to maximise the advantage the free train ride offers them to visit home and enjoy the celebration.

“The free train ride, as introduced by the Aregbesola government about six years ago, is aimed at facilitating the easy movement of the citizenry wherever they are, and this programme takes care of both Muslims and Christians during their festivals.

“Since its commencement, we can say confidently that it has been a boost to the economy of the state,” he said.
