About Jos Carnival

The maiden edition of the Jos Carnival kicked off on Wednesday, with a fiesta for Plateau children.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that wife of the Plateau Governor, Mrs. Regina Lalong, accompanied by the children, ushered in the carnival with a walk.

The governor’s wife, in a speech, said that the carnival was, in itself, a testimony to the fact that permanent peace had returned to Plateau.

“That we are holding a carnival confirms that Plateau is stable; it is a clarion call to the whole world to come to Plateau and explore the massive opportunities it offers,” she said.

She said that the carnival would showcase the rich cultural heritage of the state to tourists and remind them of Plateau’s place as the leading tourists destination in the country.

"An opportunity to bring people together, going beyond tribal and religious conflicts"
