With the recent success in the Usoro Uso – an exhibition of Art and Orange September – a series of events organized to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Akwa Ibom by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism has launched yet another event tagged Ukapisua. Ukap’isua, means “the turn of the year” or “the end of the year”.

WHY UKAPISUA
The Commissioner For Culture and Tourism, Rt Hon Victor Antai explained during a press briefing why the state needs “Ukapisua” event.
“As we all know, yuletide periods in Akwa Ibom State have hitherto been bereft of hyped activities. During this period we usually witness an outflow of human traffic into neighboring states as indigenes and fun seekers leave the state in their numbers to other parts of the country in search of entertainment and recreation.
It is in an attempt to remedy this and spice up the yuletide experience for the citizens of Akwa Ibom State, while effectively marketing our huge tourist potentials that the Ministry Of Culture and Tourism has decided to host “Ukap’isua”, an end of the year Christmas festival.
. Historically, our people planned and host festivities around this period. We hope to create during this same period, a unique experience that will not only create recreation and entertainment, but also market our huge tourism potentials.”
EVENTS LINED UP FOR UKAPISUA
The Commissioner explains the event lined up for the Xmas season
“Ukap’isua will commence with the opening of the festival village, located at the auspicious Ibom Unity Park, Udoudoma Avenue, Uyo. The festival village will host relaxation spots, shopping stalls and other recreational facilities. The main events in Ukap’isua will hold on 26th and 27th December, 2017

On 26th December, we will host a major street party/carnival tagged “Street Groove”. The star studded event will see five Bands parading along the carnival routes (University of Uyo mini stadium – Ikot ekpene road – Aka road – UdoUdoma Avenue – Unity Park). The bands will be led by an indigene. Each will be assigned an artist of repute. Talks with the likes of Wizkid, Tuface Idibia, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Phyno etc are ongoing.”
