Lagos State Government is to provide free bus ride to residents on Saturday, October 4, 2014 as part of measures to ease movement of commuters during the Eid-el-Fitri celebration across the state.

Managing Director of the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority, LAMATA, Dr. Dayo Mobereola, in a statement, yesterday, said that commuters along the Bus Rapid Transit, BRT, route will enjoy free ride from Mile 12 to CMS while those on the Bus Franchise Scheme, BFS, will ride free on Ikotun-Igando-Iyana-Ipaja-Ikeja.

Mobereola urged Nigerians to reflect on the significance of the celebration which is sacrificial giving and not reduce the festival to mere eating and drinking.
