Some recreational centres in the FCT on Wednesday recorded low turnout of fun seekers during the Eid-el Kabir celebrations, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports. Some of the fun seekers who spoke to NAN at the parks, blamed the poor turnout on a lack of money and the current security crisis in the country. Only a few fun seekers could be seen at some of the resorts, including the Millennium Park and Maitama Amusement Park.
“So, my appeal is that we should embrace each other in the interest of peace,” he said.
Also, Mr Innocent Oguh, another picnicker, said that he was at the park with his family to have fun and celebrate with Muslims. He called for continued love between Christians and Muslims for the progress of the country, noting that no meaningful development could be realised in an atmosphere of distrust and fear.
Mrs Zainab Mohammed, who spoke to NAN at the Maitama Amusement Park, however, blamed the poor turnout on inadequate recreational facilities.
