Calabar is a beautiful city in Cross River State, Nigeria.
I was born and raised here.
Over the years, I have watched it transform from Old Calabar to the modern Carnival City that she is today.
Every December, in recent years, Calabar has hosted Africa’s Largest Street Party. And it has now grown to the level of inviting not only other states, but other countries to participate too.
A resultant effect of this yearly event on Calabar Metropolis is the increase in number of new residents per year.
This increase has stressed most of the public facilities in Calabar Metropolis.
Since this is 2019, it is my prayer that the leadership of this tourism destination get it right with electricity supply, good water supply, good roads and economic prosperity for the residents in this lovely town.
