The Art Museum, Booths and the Children’s Park are taking shape ahead of the official opening of highly anticipated Ibom Christmas Village on December 1.
To ensure the Ibom Christmas Village takes off on schedule, the Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Hon. Orman Esin on Sunday inspected the site, located at the Ibibio Unity Museum.
Hon. Orman while inspecting the newly installed water facility, stated that it was necessary to provide uninterrupted water supply to enable the vendors, especially for those in the food business to carry out their daily trade without any challenges.
Other parts of the Christmas Village inspected include the Art Museum, Vendors Booths and the Children’s Park which the contractors are working round the clock while putting finishing touches.
It can be recalled that the Commissioner had earlier given his word, saying that “it will be a lovely and engaging experience this year for Akwa Ibom people and there is no point considering travelling outside the State for the celebrations.”
The Christmas Village is part of the activities for the Ibom Christmas Celebrations, a series of activities and events to celebrate the Christmas season uniquely this year in Akwa Ibom State.
