Lagos Suya carnival to hold October, promises to break Guinness world record
The Lagos Suya carnival has been set to hold on October 1, with an aim to break the Guinness World Record with the production of a single 50ft long Suya.
The Chief Executive officer, SuyaStops, Mr Kehinde Talabi, who disclosed this at a press conference during the weekend in Lagos, said plans are underway to make the event remarkable, as it is the first of its kind in the country.
He said the event, which guarantees to be an incredible one, has the support of the Lagos state government through the Lagos state Ministry of Art and Culture. Talabi said that after so much deliberation, they have concluded that nowhere other than Lagos is fit to hold a carnival as such, which is also in commemoration with the rounding off of the Lagos at 50 events.
“We have been working tirelessly behind the curtain in the past few months since we berthed this idea and we are rolling out in conjunction with the Lagos government through the ministry of Arts and culture and are sure Lagosians are in for a good ride” He added.
While addressing the audience, the permanent Secretary of Lagos Ministry of Culture and Arts Mr Ashimi Jamiu Adewale said, he thinks this will be a good avenue for tourist attraction as the attention of the world will be drawn due to the setting of a world record.
“This is a good strategy to promote the growth of the economy of the State, considering that Lagos is a state within Nigeria and because to the challenges with our energy and electricity. It is not easy to bring investors and manufacturers to Nigeria due to the cost of production, but we believe that this is the best strategy because what we want to do is to create attraction so that more people will come.” he said
Also speaking at the conference was Former lawmaker Honorable Yomi Ojo who expressed his delight in the actualization of the event, which was once a mere consideration, saying whatever is thought about is capable of being brought to reality and so it is with the Lagos State Suya Carnival.
