The Federal Government, on Wednesday, said it has slashed public transport fares for Nigerians by 50 per cent.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Solid Minerals, Dele Alake, during a press conference on the presidential intervention in public transportation to celebrate the Yuletide season in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

According to Alake, the intervention will commence Today, December 21 and end on January 4, 2024.

However, the minister said air travel was excluded from the initiative because the initiative is targeted at the masses.

He noted that President Bola Tinubu approved of the gesture in the demonstration of his love for Nigerians, adding that the move allows Nigerians who want to travel to visit their loved ones and hometowns to do so without stress and the extra burden imposed by the high cost of transport around this period.
