“For voters going to Enugu from Lagos, Please email [email protected] Include Lag-Enu in the subject. Leave Thursday, return Sunday Buses are * Free to voters travelling for purpose of voting * IRRESPECTIVE of who you’ll vote for RETWEET to support #BusesForDemocracy”
However, some Nigerians think other wise of the Free buses as they believe it is a means to get more voters
Sen. Ben Murray Bruce responded to one of the post on Twitter, he said, “If you foolishly think that #BusesForDemocracy is a Dubai Strategy, then you too should come up with your own strategy. How can a free bus ride to anyone who wants to travel to vote IRRESPECTIVE of who they want to vote be your problem? What sort of upside down thinking is that?”
