The Greater Calabar Capital Development Authority welcomes all prospective tourists coming to Calabar for the yuletide season that after due consultations with security agencies assures all tourists and Cross Riverians, residents and tourists alike are free to move about, capture a gleams of the various tourists sites in the state like Tinapa Resort, Marina Resort, the Christmas Village, the International Museum, Botanical Garden, Free Trade Zone, Cultural Centre, the International Airport, Universities, Sea Port, Obudu Ranch Resort and participate in different festivals like the Carnival Calabar and Ekpe Festival, etc. Take photo shots during the Carnival but are reminded that the ban on fireworks is still enforced. 
Calabar, the Cross River State capital has variously been described as the cleanest city in the country with the state establishing and fighting to maintain its status as a tourism hub, the tag does not exactly come as a surprise.
In the light of this we call on all Cross Riverians and business owners to keep their surroundings clean during and after the yuletide season as part of the contribution towards supporting the effort of the state government in ensuring a cleaner and wealthier environment.

It could be recalled that the Cross River State House of Assembly on 10th June, 2016 passed into law the bill establishing the Greater Calabar Capital Development Authority, the mandate of the State Agency among others are to create a well planned new city that would cater for both residential and industrial interests, provide institutional framework required to develop new cities within the Southern Senatorial District to decongest the already densely populated state capital, regulation of sanitation, management of transportation and provision of security within the city.
In the same vein we wish to state that the Greater Calabar City Development Authority is determined to deliver on its mandate, translating the vision of our Governor, His Excellency (Prof.) Ben Ayade to reality, with the interest of the people at heart.
We wish the Governor, the good people of Cross River State and tourists merry Christmas and a Happy new year in advance.
