Christmas is annually heralded on the long stretch of Ajose Adeogun street, Victoria Island by the Zenith Bank Plc lighting decorations.
As it has become a tradition, Zenith bank welcomed the yuletide season with the theme “Let there be light” in 2019.
For 2019, the official lighting was done by the GMD/CEO, Zenith Bank Plc, Ebenezer Onyeagwu, supported by executive management, staff and customers in attendance.
Speaking during the light-up ceremony, Onyeagwu said, “Ajose Adeogun Street has come to be recognised by not only Lagosians but Nigerians in general as an iconic place and tourist attraction because of the beautiful decorations adorning its length and breadth during the yuletide season. People from all walks of life visit with their friends and families to take pictures of this wonderful spectacle, especially at night and enjoy the ambiance of the street and season.”
The light-up ceremony came shortly after the ‘Zenith Bank Aspire Music Festival’, which took place in September, and is part of the bank’s line up of events ushering in the yuletide season and end of the year festivities.
The events include ‘The Zenith Bank Tech Fair’, ‘Style by Zenith 2.0’ and ‘Zenith Bank Christmas Youth Parade’.
The bank said the events are in line with its retail business drive and continued the commitment to customers with guaranteed opportunities to network and enjoy discounts on products displayed at the events.
This year marks the 14th year since the traditional light-up ceremony at Ajose Adeogun roundabout came to be.
