Sanwo-Olu announces 25 per cent slash in transport fare

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has announced a 25 percent slash in transport fares for government-owned transport schemes.

Sanwo-Olu made this announcement during a live media chat, ‘Sanwo Speaks’ on Thursday.

He also announced that civil servants from levels 1–14 will begin to work three days a week as part of measures to ease the economic challenges for residents.

The governor noted that the forum was intended to intimate residents of steps being taken to reduce the economic burden on Lagosians.

He said workers in the teaching sector will, however, maintain the five-day-a-week work schedule, but the government will ensure additional transportation support for them.
