In keeping with his promise of making life more amenable to Ndi Enugu, even those diaspora, and to avert undue exploitation and suffering at hands of Shylock transport operatives prior to and during the Yuletide, Governor Ugwuanyi has made good his pledge of ferrying home returning Enugu indigenes from the Western and Northern parts of the country.
It has become the norm of transporters to hike fares during this period thereby making it difficult for persons to travel to their native communities for the celebration and reunion with their folks.
Fares from some western and northern centres have skyrocketed in quadruples including airfares from these areas.
To fly home a family of seven from. Lagos, one has cough out half a million naira for a one-ticket and double that amount for a return ticket.
This explains the excitement and relief of Ndi Enugu diaspora for the kind gesture of Gov Ugwuanyi.
Beneficiaries are thankful to Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State for sustaining his administration’s annual ritual in spite of the economic and public health challenges confronting the country, after being formally received by the Management of the State Transport Company, ENTRACO.
