Residents of the Federal Capital Territory on Sunday, trooped out to celebrate the valentine’s day, causing human traffic and vehicular gridlock at parks and fun sports.

Correspondents of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) who visited parks and fun spots within the metropolis report that most of them were full to capacity.

NAN reports that the roads leading to Millenium Park, Silverbird Galleria, Wonderland and the Jabi Lake Park were blocked by traffic.

Some of the people who spoke to NAN were happy at the turnout, but expressed displeasure at the limited parking spaces available at the event centres.

Miss Linda Nwachukwu who expressed bitterness at how long it took to park her vehicle at the Silverbird Galleria, stressed that if she had known, she would not have come out.

At the Jabi Lake, Mrs Emily Joseph, who came with her husband and her son said she was surprised at the turn out of fun seekers at the resort.

At the millennium park, Mrs Gladys Umoren who sells soft drinks said she made more sales more than ever.

"Other years were not like this, I thank God,” she said.

Wasiu Ogundimu, a taxi driver told NAN that since he started work at 12 p.m. he had been very busy conveying people to different fun spots.

NAN reports that many of the fun seekers wore a touch of red, the colour associated with the celebration.
