Nigerians have joined the rest of the world in ushering in the year 2019.
In Nigeria, many Christians took to their various churches where night vigils held to herald the new year.
While some Nigerians took to the churches, there were others at city centres and parks where official countdown concerts took place.
The One Lagos Fiesta was one of the events put together to usher in the new year, with various artists and performers thrilling revelers who thronged to the venue of the fiesta put together by the Lagos state government.
And when the clock struck 12am signaling the berth of a new day, Nigerians across the country especially in Lagos, took to the streets in jubilation. At certain centres around Nigeria’s economic hub, major firework displays lit up the skies as each-one bad the other “Happy New Year”.
