Thanks to Johnnie Walker”. Commercial bus driver, Wasiu added “I thought it was a mistake until one of the Johnnie Walker attendants handed me a ‘Keep Walking’ card”.
Adenike Adebola, Portfolio Director, Spirits and RTD, Diageo Nigeria, commented on the activation, “The #ISeeYouLagos activation is a free toll gate access aimed at providing surprise zero-toll to commuters at random.
