Pilgrims from Nigeria and neighbouring African countries travelling to the Pope's masses in Lagos (on March 10th to March 13th inclusive) have been told by organisers to use public transport to get there.

Parishioners thought they would be using private buses but, due to the Papacy having to reduce expenditure due to the £10 million spent on last year's visit to the U.K., have in the last few days been told they will now need to use buses, trains and the underground.

An unnamed papal source alleges that, if the pilgrims don't use public transport, they will have no alternative but to legate.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
