The first London style double-decker fun tour bus has been launched in the Cross River State capital, Calabar by one of Nigeria’s foremost tour operation company, NovaRosta Ltd. It is the first of its kind to be launched in West Africa.
The bus was first spotted by CrossRiverWatch at the Margaret Ekpo International Airport conveying guests at the traditional marriage ceremony of the daughter of Senator Ita Giwa, Kokoeka and her heartthrob, Chimaobi Shawcross Obioha Jnr; and later sighted at the Cross River Movie Awards treating Nollywood actors to a leisure cruise around town in Calabar.
Speaking to CrossRiverWatch after the fun tour, Nollywood actor, Moses Armstrong said he was amazed about the bus adding that the bus could also be useful during carnival and film productions.
According to him “I’m still wondering, believe me, I’m seeing it for the first time in Nigeria and I think it’s a welcomed development. The ride was nice, like what you saw just happened.”
“It’s a very beautiful one; I was just asking how much it can go so as I can take it to Uyo for an event, where we are going to have a carnival float very soon. I like it, it’s very good,” Moses added.
CrossRiverWatch gathered that the NovaRosta Double-decker fun bus is expected to be formally launched in Nigeria’s tourism capital, Calabar, on 10th of October 2014, after which it will commence operations in full swing.
