Barring last minute hitches, plans are on to host the second edition of Plateau State carnival in Jos, which is one of the projects by the government to rekindle domestic tourism and bring back tourists to the city. The carnival with the theme: ‘One People' is set to rock the city of Jos in May, with tourists and visitors expected to come from all parts of the country.
Nigeria's Federal Ministry of Information and Culture has today announced the cancellation of this year Abuja Carnival. The event would now hold in November 2018. This revelation was made in a brief internal memo presented to national agencies, departments and other States Ministry of Culture and Tourism, at the on-going 9th National Council on Tourism, Culture and National Orientation holding in Dutse Jigawa State. The Ministry said the event was cancelled due to "logistical challenges".
