Business activities have resumed in Jos, the Plateau capital after Christmas celebration, a survey by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday has revealed.
NAN correspondents who visited the Terminus, Bukuru and Rukuba road markets, report that some shop owners have opened for business after the celebration.
Mr Philip Uche, who owns a boutique on Ahmadu Bello Way, told NAN that he had resumed because there was nothing to do at home as Christmas has come and gone.
“I am bored of staying at home, I decided to open the shop for anybody who may want to buy a dress,’’ he said.
Mrs Cecilia Gokwat, a vegetable seller at the Rukuba road market, also displayed her commodities and was seen attending to customers.
Gokwat told NAN that she had exhausted the money she kept for her children school fees in the course of the celebration and needed to return early to the market to make up the money before schools reopen in January.
NAN observed that the number of vehicles plying the roads has also increased, a situation that was different in the last two days when the roads were deserted.
Motor parks were also busy as some people were travelling out of Jos while others were returning to the city to resume work on Wednesday.
“One of the commuters, Israel Gyang, who spoke to NAN at the New Nyanya park at Old Airport junction in Jos, said that he had to return to Abuja to resume work on wednesday.
