These are some of the sights of Calabar, an alluring city in the South South of Nigeria. It has a rich history pre-dating modern Nigeria. Calabar hosted the first game of football in Nigeria and is home to many schools which give Nigerians a leap in life.
Hope Waddell Training Institution founded in 1895 by the Church of Scotland (now known as Presbyterian Church) missionaries is one of such schools. It boasts of training many nationalists including two, whose faces adorn Nigeria’s currencies – Nnamdi Azikiwe (Nigeria’s first president) and Alvan Ikoku (an educationist).
Calabar, the capital of Cross River State, is without doubt the cleanest city in Nigeria today.
