Explore other transportation means, ex-Ogun commissioner urges Nigerian

Former Commissioner for Transportation in Ogun State, Gbenga Dairo, has called on Nigerians to explore and adopt other means of transportation to ease the burden of the removal of the fuel subsidy.

Dairo disclosed this while receiving the pupils of  Divine Grace Foundation Montessori School, Aro Lambo, Oke-Aro, Ogun State.

A statement said, “Dairo urged people to key into other means of transportation, especially when transporting themselves from one place to another. He said Nigerians should explore all modes of transportation, including not only the railway or personal vehicle but also tricycles and others.”

The former commissioner gave the pupils a train ride from Lagos State, bicycle riding, and also took them on a boat ride to expose them to different forms of transportation.

According to Dairo, he had seen one of the pupils, Olukunle Michael, discussing the various modes of transportation in a video online, and that was what motivated him to provide the schoolchildren with a real-life experience of these transportation methods.

“Giving them the opportunity to witness and engage them with sustainable transportation firsthand could nurture their curiosity and inspire them to continue envisioning a greener and more interconnected future of Ogun State,” he said.

The Proprietress of the school, Oyindamola Bajulaye, appreciated the former commissioners’ gesture, adding that the event would be of great benefit to the children in the nearest future.
