Some fun seekers in Kuje Area Council, FCT, on Friday called on the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) and the Council to establish more recreation parks and gardens in the community.
Speaking in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kuje, they claimed that the absence of recreation facilities made living in the community boring.
Ibrahim Sani, a fun seeker, said it was disappointing for a town like Kuje with rapid growth in population not to have fun facilities, adding that the community was not supposed to lack fun spots.
According to him, the absence of a park is the reason people usually leave Kuje town during festive seasons, saying that there is a need for more recreation spots in the area.
“Kuje is not supposed to lack recreation facilities that will bring people together, especially during a period like this.
“It kills our joy here, when we leave the satellite town to the central area just to catch fun and celebrate with our loved ones.
“People love to have fun, so when you do not have a place to relax within your community you become miserable.
“Most people who go to villages do so because there is no place to relax and have fun in their place of residence,” he said.
Sule Lamordi, another fun seeker, said that parks and gardens had a way of uniting the people of a particular entity and creating lasting memories that would stand the test of time.
Lamordi also appealed to both government and individuals to build recreation facilities in the satellite town to enhance social development in the area.
“When you go to big towns, there is no dull moment for fun seekers, you can go swimming, play music in gardens, meet people of different characters, these are the things that make people happy in communities,” he said.
