Akwa Ibom Okposo beach Christopher Naijatreks 1[5]

Sunset at the natural beach in my village- Okposo village, Ibeno local government area, Akwa Ibom State.  –Christopher Tom, from Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria.

Christopher Tom from Okposo Village, Akwa Ibom State in south-south Nigeria decided to share some lovely photos he took when he visited his village recently. It is amazing to see some charming natural beaches set in remote locations in our great country, Nigeria. Okposo Village is definitely a treasure waiting to be discovered. We will remember that our last #UnveilmyNaija post was also from Akwa Ibom- in which Nortey Akpotive shared photos of her trip to the beautiful Ibeno Beach. These two posts apparently confirms the huge tourism potentials held by the pristine beaches in Ibeno Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.

This post and that of Nortey has also projected the aim of our #UnveilmyNaija project, as they both jointly unveiled one of the many tourism potentials the world out there needs to know about our beautiful country.

We look forward to more entries from people who will love to tell their story on our platform. Enjoy the photos from Christopher Tom below:

Wow, very pretty. NT, you are so right about the tourism potential, but will it ever be realized?

@Berry… you know, that one big fear that bugs my mind. Sometimes, I just think that these awesome potentials will eventually be bastardized by people who do not know their worth or value 🙁 We can only hope that things will get better before that happens. Thanks for your comment Berry.
