Long weekend as Lagos declares Thursday free work day

The Lagos State Government has declared Thursday, March 29, 2018, as a work free day in the State.

In a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Kehinde Bamigbetan and obtained by InsideMainland, he stated that the holiday will enable Lagosians come out enmasse to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari who is on a historic two-day visit to Lagos State.

The statement urged residents to adhere to the security guidance earlier announced to make the visit as peaceful and orderly.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to officially commission the newly built Ikeja Bus Terminal on Thursday, March 29, 2018. The terminal designed to change the face of public transportation in the state, will convey more than 70,000 passengers daily to over 22 destinations across the State.

He will also be attending a colloquium in honour of former Governor of Lagos State and National leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and as well as embark on tour of the Eko Atlantic City, among others.
