President Muhammadu Buhari will be a guest of the Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for two days this week. And for that, Lagos will be shut down. Heck, a public holiday has also been thrown in for effect.
“The Lagos State government on Tuesday declared Thursday, March 29 as work free day in the State”, a statement from the Commissioner for Information and Strategy in Lagos, Kehinde Bamigbetan, read.
The work free day, Bamigbetan announces, is so that Lagosians “will come out enmasse to welcome President Buhari who is on a historic two-day visit to the State”.
