Lagos State Governor Declares A 7 Day Party For Lagos Residents
Written by Smooth FM on December 25, 2019
Lagos Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu has concluded plans to thrill Lagosians for 7 days–beginning from Christmas Day, December 25, to New Year’s eve on December 31st.
“We want to prove that there is no party like a Lagos party,” says Lagos State Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Olufunke Adebolu.
Adebolu adds that; “Mr. Governor is celebrating a week-long party in Lagos state because he wants all Lagosians to come out and celebrate with him and we’ve launched the Greater Lagos Christmas and New Year extravaganza for this purpose.”
Adebolu says the Lagos Christmas party will be different this year. “In time past, the Lagos fiesta has been something where you just involve international artistes, artistes from Lagos who come on stage, sing a song, cheer the people up and go. The formula we have this year for the Greater Lagos 2020 New Year extravaganza is more of a family oriented show. It’s more of a show, more of a performance.
“It’s an atmosphere that we are creating to usher in the yuletide 2020 and usher in a new decade with a bang. This year, it’s more than a show. It’s all encompassing because we want to cement our position as the premier destination for tourism and the absolute top notch place for entertainment and tourism on the African continent
Lagos Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotoso, encourages families to include the party in their Christmas/ New Year plans because security will be guaranteed across the state and traffic will be well managed.
