Yuletide: fun seekers throng leisure spots in Ibadan

Leisure Centres in Ibadan, Oyo State, including the popular Agodi Gardens and Shoprite, were beehive of activities as many fun seekers thronged the venues in celebration of Christmas on Wednesday.

There were crowd at many of the fun spots in Ibadan metropolis.

At the Agodi Gardens, there was a large number of people at the entrance in spite of the N500 entrance fee.

Also at Shoprite, many parents brought a good number of their children in spite of the N300, N500 amounts paid by the children to access the playing ground.

A Mother and Trader, Mrs Adebukola Adeleke, who brought five children, said she celebrated Jesus, the reason for the season and God for the grace of being alive to witness another Christmas season.

Adeleke said that this year’s celebration was better than the other years.

“Our new governor is really doing well in terms of free education, beautification of the state and ensuring adequate peace and security in the state.

Also speaking, a father and businessman, Mr Benjamin Oluwadare, who brought his children and relatives, said he went extra mile to ensure that the family had fun.

“The birth of Jesus is the best thing that happened to humanity. For me, Christmas is the best season in the world and it’s worth celebrating.

“His birth brought us salvation, deliverance and total freedom from all bondages, though the economy is not helpful but we thank God for everything.

“Pray for the government to work harder and give us a better tomorrow,” he said.

Also, Mr Gabriel Obat emphasised that he brought his  daughter who was marking her birthday today to celebrate it in the fun spot so as to make it unique.

“Incidentally, today is my daughter’s birthday and the family deemed it fit to mark the celebration at Shoprite.

“We really thank God for life and another Christmas season. We pray to be alive to witness many more in sound health,” he said.

Also, one of the operators at the Bouncing Castle Children Playing Ground, Shoprite, Miss Adenike Adedapo, said operators made brisk business.

“A lot of people patronise us now than other times. We made triple profit of what we got when there was no festive period.

“We ensure that few of our staff stay around the children to guard, guide them as they play. We allow parents to stay with those that are still very small as they ride and play so as to ensure their safety,” she said.

Many fun seekers were also sighted at Bubbleplus, Paris Club, FoodCo, Ringii as well as other recreation centres in Ibadan metropolis.

Many, especially youths, were also seen having fun and posing for photographs around the different Christmas aesthetics/decorations positioned at strategic roundabouts in the city.
