The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has said that Nigerians will enjoy free ride on the Abuja Light Rail for two months, after its commissioning on Monday, May 27, 2024.

Wike stated this during the ongoing Ministerial Sectoral Update to mark the first year in office of the President Bola Tinubu administration, held at the Radio House in Abuja, on Thursday.

The Minister had earlier stated that the President, Bola Tinubu will commission the Metro rail project for commercial activities on Monday.

He however urged residents to begin use of the Metro rails from Tuesday, the 28th of May, adding that the goal was to aid the ease of commuting for residents and that the President may extend the free train rides up to 6 months

In his words;

“We are not talking of commissioning buildings but the commercial operation.

 

“There were no access roads to the stations which impeded the operation of the metro line.

 

“The President will ride on the metro line on Monday, 27th May; it will be your turn, Nigerians, as from Tuesday.

And there will be free rides for two months, to reduce the pain on our people, that is what is called Renewed Hope Agenda.”
