Business activities pick up in Kaduna

06 July 2012, 16:01

Kaduna - Business activities in Kaduna have fully resumed after the closure of shops on Thursday due to the security alert that hoodlums would launch a fresh attack.

Markets and schools have resumed, while residents were going about on their normal businesses.

The Kaduna State Government and security agencies had debunked the rumour, warning that any person caught spreading false information, capable of breaching the peace and security in the state, would be arrested.

Oge Chukwu, a trader at the Sheikh Abubakar Gumi market, said that people had resumed their normal businesses after the recent crisis that crippled business activities.

Mike Sunday, another trader, said although traders had opened their shops, the patronage was low.

He decried the incessant crises in the state, urging the government to find a lasting solution to the problem.

Umar Abdullahi, a fashion designer, appealed to the government to provide job opportunities to the unemployed to check the youth restiveness.

Mrs Murna John, a customer at the market, said the incessant crises had led to high prices of commodities in various markets.

She said people now preferred to patronise markets in their vicinity, rather than go to the central market where they could easily get variety of goods at cheaper rates.

Austin Amaechi, the leader of Igbo community in Kaduna, said his members were ready to be enlisted as peace ambassadors to bring about lasting peace in the state.

Ganiyu Oguntoyinbo, the Yoruba Leader in Kaduna, reiterated the commitment of his community to assist the government and security agents in resolving the security challenges in the state.
