Uyo is the capital of Akwa Ibom State, a major oil producing state of Nigeria. The city became a capital of Akwa Ibom State on September 23, 1987 following its creation from Cross River State. The city can be accessed by road via the A342 highway, as well as Abak Road, Nwaniba Road, Itu Road, and Aka Road. Nearby airports include the Uyo Airport, also known as the Akwa Ibom International Airport.

Today is not a speech-making day! Uyo is a fast growing city, as the city has witnessed massive infrastructural growth in the past nine years. We will not talk about the intensive network of divided highways, such as the IBB Way, Atiku Abubakar Avenue, Udo Udoma Avenue, Nsikak Eduok Avenue, and Edet Akpan Avenue which is an eight-lane superhighway and currently the widest road in the Uyo metropolis. We will not talk about the flyovers constructed to ease traffic. Three flyovers have already been completed at the Itam axis of the urban area which is under Itu jurisdiction. 

We will not tell you that plans are in process for more flyovers as well as ongoing dualisation of Aka road, ongoing construction of Ring Road 3 with flyovers (a portion of it will be ten lanes) and the dualisation of Wellingtion Bassey Way.

All we want you to know is that Godswill is done in Akwa Ibom State and these are the 5 major events that will keep the city bubbling with life this April. Whether you are passing through the city, or you just need to spend a few days here, please plan to attend at least one of these events! Dont forget to stop by Ibom Tropicana this weekend to see new movies!
