Lagos lifts curfew for inauguration ceremony
from AUGUSTINE OSAYANDE in Abuja, Nigeria
ABUJA, (CAJ News) – NIGERIA’S Lagos State Government has cancelled restrictions on human and vehicular movement ahead of the inauguration and swearing-in ceremony of both the President-elect Muhammadu Buhari and new Governor of the state.
State Commissioner for the Environment, Tunji Bello, said the cancellation was necessary in order to ensure hitch-free movement for the swearing-in and inauguration ceremonies in Lagos and Abuja respectively.
Bello said this would also allow normalcy return to roads after the recent strike action by fuel marketers.
The recent strike had culminated in major fuel shortages across the country amid fears major industries would shut down.
Meanwhile, the spotlight would be on Abuja and Lagos, the country’s administrative and commercial capitals on Friday for the inauguration ceremonies.
