Recall that the Lagos state government had said today, Thursday, March 29, will be a work free day because of President Muhammadu Buhari’s two-day visit.
Kehinde Bamigbetan, commissioner for information, said this is to enable residents come out en masse to welcome the president.
Bamigbetan urged residents to adhere to security guidance earlier announced to make the visit peaceful and orderly.
Imohini Edgal, the commissioner of police in the state, said there would be temporary road closure and diversions in some areas.
Edgal made the announcement at a news conference to update the public on security plans for the president’s visit.
He said Buhari would be attending a colloquium to mark the 66th birthday of Bola Tinubu at Victoria Island, and the official flag-off ceremony for the construction of the Lekki Deep Sea Port project in Epe.
