Lagos State distributes free cowry cards to ferry users

The Managing Director of LAGFERRY, Mr Ladi Balogun, made the distribution at the Day One of the Sailing’ N Smiling Promo raffle draw in Lagos on Thursday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the promo was launched on June 10 to reward loyal LAGFERRY customers, boost patronage and popularise water transportation to decongest traffic on Lagos roads.

The managing director said that the state Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu directed the distribution.

He said that the ‘sailing and smiling’ promo was facilitated by the Lagos State Waterways Authority, Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency, Samsung, Lagos State Lottery and Gaming Authority, LAGFERRY, Elivat9ja, Coscharis Group and the Nigerian Breweries Plc.

Balogun urged ferry users to adopt cashless policy by loading their tokens in the cowry card which was integrated into all government modes of transportations.

“We are doing the promo to encourage our people to come on waterway so that we can decongest traffic on the road. It is safe, fast and reliable,” Balogun said.

”We hope that the promo will increase our ridership by 10 per cent.

“We are going to have a winner of the first grand prize – a car – courtesy of Coscharis Motors, in September,” Balogun said.

He said that LAGFERRY and other organisers of the promo would have the promo in 16 jetties.

The raffle draw began at the Falomo Jetty on Thursday (July 1).
