For what is expected to bring the euphoria of Christmas to life even quicker than imagined, only few days to the actual festive celebration, events company, Jandel Limited is lighting up some principal streets of Accra in a most historic way.
Code-named ‘Light Up Accra’, the initiative will combine lights, flowers and creativity from some of the best in the decoration field.
The Independence Avenue (Liberation Road), which will mark the most principal of all the streets to be lighted up for the festive season, will come alive as lights go on and off, blasting colours of all shades into the atmosphere, as has never been experienced in Accra before.
The initiative is being executed in collaboration with the Ecobank, Standard Chartered Bank and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and will take place on Wednesday, December, 18, 2019.
CEO of Jandel Ms. Afi Amoro, in a statement issued on the momentous event, said, “Christmas is a season that brings joy, life and light into the hearts and minds of people. It is for the purpose that Jandel over the past years has been developing this concept to bring good cheer to the streets for Christmas and new year.”
