Lagos To Shut Down Oba Akran Road For Carnival
The Lagos State Government yesterday said it is set to stage this year’s edition of the Lagos Street Carnival scheduled to hold on December 3 on Oba Akran Avenue in Ikeja.
The Special Adviser to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Hon Adebimpe Akinsola, in an interview with reporters, said the venue of the carnival would be shut down but adequate preparations have been made for alternative routes to mitigate the impact of the road closure on motorists and residents.
Dubbed: “Lagos Street Party” in its maiden edition last year, the event has grown into a carnival to mark the beginning of the Ministry’s end of the year activities.
It is also designed to celebrate the multi-cultural nature of Lagosians and reposition the State as a formidable cultural destination.
