Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has lauded the effort of the Cross River State Government in sustaining its status as the preferred tourism destination with the construction of a world class conference facility in Calabar.

Fielding questions from journalists shortly after undertaking an inspection tour of some of the projects embarked by Imoke in Calabar, yesterday, the Speaker maintained that the state could not have done anything less being one of the preferred destinations for conferencing in the country.

Accompanied by top leadership of the House including the Deputy leader, Hon. Leo Ogor, Tambuwal , averred: “You could see clearly that this project is now going to bring out the value of Tinapa. I was shocked and surprise to see how close Tinapa is now to Calabar. Tinapa can now be optimally utilized by the people.

“when you talk about tourism destination in Nigeria, Cross River State and Calabar in particular is number one destination and being the number one destination, you are going to need not only the convention Center like we have here but the facilities like the hotels, the golf course, the estate and the community all around this convention center.

“I believe it is a well conceived project and it is a very good idea and commend Governor Liyel Imoke for this wonderful vision, I commend his tenacity in ensuring that this idea is translated into reality.

“I’m sure beyond the people of Cross River, the nation will benefit from this all important project”
The Speaker promised to be the first guest at the Convention Center by bringing the House for a retreat at the facility when completed.

“I’m told by the Governor that the project will be completed by December. The Deputy Leader of the House is here and I can assure you that we will bring the entire House of Representatives here not for a special session of the House but for a retreat.”

One commentOn Tambuwal Thumps up Calabar International Convention Center

  • this is one Governor in the country who make judicious use of what the state is earning but i still don’t fathom why roads leading to the state capital from other States are in such deplorable conditions despite his closeness to the corridors of powers and an indigene of the State a Majority leader in the Red Chamber.
