As a State known for our rich culture and tourism, we must be reminded that a good means of transportation is key if we must continue to maintain our status as a tourism destination.
As we prepare for the biggest street party in Africa, we must also try to improve our transport system by providing decent and affordable cars for tourist and other visitors into the state.
Today , we are in dire need of transportation system. And it is important to state that tourist get attracted to quality means of transportation as it aids their movement within a particular region.
From Calabar to the ranch we do not have a good means of transportation and this has discouraged a lot of tourist who may want to come into the State. We do not have good taxis or buses that ply major routes in the state.
As a tourism destination, we must immediately provide good means of transportation that would convey tourists to the famous Obudu Mountain Resort, from the Southern, Central and Northern parts of the State. And also other tourism destination within Cross River State.
No tourist wants to visit a destination that has rickety buses or taxis. They desire to see decent means of transportation.
Improved transportation would lead to job creation, and promote the local economy and generate more revenue for government.
