“We are replicating the walk4tourism this year, starting from Ikeja/Allen roundabout, with over 100 youth. The event will also feature cultural dances,” he said.
The endurance carnival walk which will end at the Lagos State Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja is to sensitise the public on Nigerian tourism and cultural potential.
