Railways’ free ride

The free train ride to the public during the Yuletide season announced by the Nigeria Railway Corporation has become a case of penny wise, pound foolish.

The revenue given up by the gesture has become income to corrupt officials and scammers who sequestered available tickets for resale to the travelling public.

Worse, the rail coaches under this operation exemplify Fela’s description of Lagos Molue bus – 50 sitting, 99 standing, with some passengers simply on a joy ride.

 It would be better to discount ticket prices next time so that genuine travellers get relief and the corporation makes some income.
