We have added some features to make the road even more welcoming to our visitors. I am sure every Akwa Ibomite, irrespective of political persuasion, should be proud of this gateway into our beautiful and serene capital city of Uyo.

“The character, pulse and ethos of any city all over the world, to a large extent, are defined and shaped by what a first time visitor sees at the point of arrival, which is the airport, and the major road that leads to the city centre, and Your Excellency, you recognized this very important aspect and started the expansion of this road.” The Governor said.
