Mr. James Frank, a fun seeker, said he took advantage of the holiday and the temperate weather to engage in physical exercise.

Frank expressed the hope that Buhari’s second term would impact positively on the lives of Nigerians.

He, however, urged the president to tackle the current security challenges in the country, to usher in economic prosperity.

“The new administration should do things differently from what we experienced during the first tenure and also address the security challenges in different parts of the country.

“There is no way we can prosper when people are living in fear of being killed or kidnapped because it affects everybody,’’ he said.

At Wuse Market, business activities have picked up with heavy traffic at the entrance to the market.
