The Edo State government has announced an extension of its free bus service by all Edo City Transport Service buses to all its routes till Friday, February 24.

According to the statement made available by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie, the government said the extension became necessary because the cash crunch experienced by the people in the state has remained unabated.

“The extension became necessary because the cash crunch experienced by the people in the state has remained unabated.

“While the government intensifies efforts to bring a lasting solution to this issue, the government calls on the people to remain calm and law-abiding as normalcy will be restored shortly.”

The Edo state government had on February 16 introduced a five-day free bus service to run till February 20 to alleviate the suffering brought on by the unavailability of the new naira to its citizens. However, due to the sustained crisis, the state, therefore, extended the free transport services till February 24.
