Some workers were seen resuming at the Federal Secretariat and other offices within the city centre.

Mr Donald Eze, a spare parts dealer said the holiday period afforded him the opportunity to bond with family and friends.

He, however, said he needed to resume recouping the money he had spent during the period.

“I enjoyed myself with family and friends during the Easter holiday. It is now time for business and that is why I am in the shop,” he said.

Miss Iyabo Ojo, a public servant, said she was going to the office to conclude plans for an upcoming event.

NAN reports that while some businesses were halted within the holiday period, others particularly relaxation centres and saloons had a boom.

Relaxation centres like barbecue fish joints, eateries and bars had high patronage.
