The Lagos State Government has announced that it will be shutting down the Oba Akran Avenue in Ikeja on December 3 for the purpose of the Lagos Street Carnival event.
The state announced that this year’s edition of the Lagos Street Carnival will hold in the avenue on that date.
Adebimpe Akinsola, the special adviser to the Governor on tourism, arts and culture, made the announcement. She said:
Several adjoining roads will also be closed on the day of the carnival, but alternative routes will be accessed by road users.
Arrangements are in place to ensure that the venue and its environs are safe and incident-free.
We expect more visitors this year; so the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture is working with the police, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Lagos State Fire service, and the Lagos State Waste Management Agency to ensure safety.
She added that amongst others, artists expected to perform at the carnival are: Olamide, Lil Kesh, Queen Salawa Abeni, Malaika and Tope Sax.
