Tinubu gives approval for six-month free ride on Abuja Metro

President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday, gave approval for the extension of free train rides on the Abuja Rail Mass Transit until the end of the year.

Tinubu stated this during his address at the inauguration of the commencement of operations of the Abuja metro rail in Abuja on Wednesday.

The FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, had earlier announced free train rides for two months, to ease the burden of commuting for residents of the FCT.

However, the President appealed for the extension to offer hope to the people of the FCT and give them reasons to celebrate

“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,” Tinubu said.
