The federal government has announced additional motor parks where Nigerians can benefit from the 50 per cent discount for interstate travel.
The President Bola Tinubu administration approved a 50 percent discount for inter-state road travels, and 100 percent for train trips, for Nigerians travelling to celebrate Christmas with their families.
Dele Alake, minister of solid minerals, who announced the development at the state house, said the discount will run from December 21 to January 4, 2024.
The minister said the discount will enable Nigerians to travel to “wherever they want to go to meet their loved ones without the extra-burden of paying exorbitantly for inter-state public transportation”.
