The lockdown is going to be over soon, and I bet with the resumption of normal activities you wanna savour everything activity has to offer? Well, this article was written to give you choices of activities you would want to engage in, across three states in Nigeria.
This is the first city on our list. It is the capital city of Akwa Ibom. This city is bordered on the east by Cross River State, on the west by Rivers State and Abia State, and on the south by the Atlantic Ocean. For years the city of Uyo has been on the top bucket list of most travellers.
Here are a couple of places you should visit if you are in Akwa Ibom.

This centre mirrors the famous Disneyland in the United States.
It has a 14storey five-star hotel, a game park, a shopping mall and a cinema.
