In a statement by the Director Bureau of Communication and Strategy, Office of the Governor, Semiu Okanlawon, the government announced that the free train service would be offered between Thursday and Sunday.
Okanlawon said the train would by 11am convey people from Lagos to Osogbo on Thursday. The return journey would start by 11am on Sunday.
He noted that the gesture was in line with the Rauf Aregbesola’s administration’s initiative to make life better for the people.
Okanlawon said: “The Aregbesola government is people-friendly. A government totally committed to unlocking the potentials in our people.
“And we must sustain the strategy we have employed to ginger our people’s interests in coming home and also enhance the state’s tourism potentials.
“We, therefore, use this opportunity to urge our people to grab this unique opportunity provided by the government and join the ride to spend the Eid-el-Fitri holiday in Osun.”
