As part of its corporate social responsibility, the management of ABC Transport PLC, Nigeria’s foremost road transport and logistics company has announced that it will subsidize fares for passengers travelling on its Sprinter and Executive Express Coach services nationwide, for the purpose of elections.
This move is essentially aimed to encourage and assist Nigerian citizens all over the country who would need to travel in order to participate in the rescheduled Presidential and National Assembly elections.
It should be recalled that last week, Nigerians from all over the country defied the strain and inconvenience and travelled en masse to the various locations where they registered to vote in the elections which were originally scheduled to hold on the 16th of February 2019.
However, due to some logistic issues the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had to announce the postponement of the polls and rescheduled to Saturday 23rd February 2019.
This subsidy applies for travels on the 22nd and 25th February and certainly comes as a welcome relief to many travellers nationwide who had already incurred some costs in order to perform their civic responsibility and ABC Transport in its traditional manner has stepped up to take a proactive role in this regard.
