Getting Around Town

Beside the town center where the main market and most commercial activity is centered, there are outlying villages that make up Afikpo. The best way to get to these villages is by car or by commercial motor bikes popularly known as “Okada”.

You can flag down an Okada (there are everywhere) and ask the operator to take you almost anywhere in town. When hiring a taxi or an Okada, don’t forget to bargain since there are no fixed rates.

For an informative tour that includes historical and cultural references, consider hiring a tour guide.

Dining options range from roadside vendors to restaurants attached to hotels. A fast food restaurant inside the Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic Unwana (about 15 minutes drive away) provides another dining option and a chance to tour the Polytechnic and surrounding areas.

There are a handful of internet cafes available for web surfing and checking emails. Ask your tour guide or the locals to direct you to one of them.

    Afikpo,which is strategically located on the West bank of the cross river,in ebonyi state,should be the epitome of the state’s transformation,by building an industrial jetty at the river’s shores.This could be achieved by partnering the organised private sector.Thus,it would be the state’s own version of onitsha,anambra state.
