Just go to upper-iweka new park...I'm sure they would direct you to where you can get a bus going to Taraba state, and of course the length of the journey.

Good luck.

i served in taraba but the state is far behind development,they have 16 local govt...i think six out of the lg hv electricity just make sure u work ur place of pry assignment to wukari, takum or jalingo that is the only better place to serve in taraba but if they send you to gembu o boy u will hate urself. wukari and takum is ok because they are close to benue and they are christian. that is why dr gov is using plane and helipcoter even no light in is local govt {bali}.

Hello guys,my name is Ralph and u new corp members will definitely meet me when you come over to diamond bank to open ur allowance account.
Let me give you all a little guide on how to come to taraba from some major locations.
If u r coming from lagos,simply go to Ido park and join either fairplus buses or Sakore buses,they come straight to taraba and the fair is 8k and they leave lagos as early as 6am to 7 am, or call collins on 08034649284 to give u directions on how to locate the park.
If you live in benin,asaba and onitsha,then the services of this luxury buses Ifesinachi,GUO,Gold,Ezenwata and The young shall grow,is your best bet as theyvcome straight to jalingo and yola from up eweka,other than these buses, others are riketty and may take you up to 2days or more to come. Over to jalingo.
Please i would advice against night trips as the activities of the king of the night has greatly increased due to the ember months.
For corp members in enugu there is a taraba park opposite radio nigeria and another at nite-mile.
If you are coming from Aba and port harcourt axis,fairplus is your best bet as they come straight to Taraba.
I hope this helps......for further enquiries,just leave your message on the thread and i will surely be handy to help out.
Safe trip to you all please pray for journey mercies as the least time to cover from all location is about 9hrs.
One love!!!

Buses from Onitsha: departure time for morning buses are 6.45am so you can either book ahead of time or go very early.but onitsha in itself is very dangerous so be careful too.
night buses leave as from 12noon to 4pm but you will arrive taraba the next morning
Safe trip

If you have phobia for night journeys and you wish to get to Taraba State from any part of this Country, it is easier going through Abuja. Taraba to Abuja is 9hrs, and you wiLl have enough time to rest, there is less risk and stress. Avoidnnight journeys as much as possible.

uniqueoge: Plz how far is Taraba state from onitsha in Anambra state,

12 hrs (max)

I served in taraba 2008/09 batch a. Make sure u av enof money for food. Their food at d camp is notdependable. If u re yoruba, u don't av any problem regarding food because "mama ijesha" is @ mammy market. Ibo food sellers were there too, but I didn't really explore them. Another thing is that there is no good toilet @ the camp. Be prepared for "shot put".
In all, be extremely vigilant n safety conscious, and pls don't forget to take with u mosquito net.

There are direct buses from onitsha to jalingo, luxury buses. I boarded one of dem when I served there.
Re: A thread for corpers posted to Taraba by Nobody: 5:08am On Nov 05, 2012
I served in Taraba. The camp is lovely, Mama Ijesha food joint and Maami market is fun too cos of much shayo. Wukari, Takum,Jalingo is the best LG. I was posted to Gembu (9hrs Journey from Jalingo), the road is bad after Gashaka (the car will have to climb a hill, very dangerous road) and Gembu is very cold. Though, i redeployed to Lagos then but it was fun cos i enjoyed myself in Gembu cos of the friendly weather and clubbing is fun in Gembu. Enjoy your stay there. God bless!
Re: A thread for corpers posted to Taraba by Tunjman(m): 9:44am On Nov 05, 2012
I served in taraba in 2008/2009. We were 6 posted to the state in my department and we all agreed to move together but, unfortunately, we could not co-ordinate ourselves as some settled for flight instead of the road transport we earlier agreed to use.

Myself and one other colleague decided to leave together and we made jibowu our meeting point. The camp was scheduled to open on Monday and having known taraba to be a long distant, we left Lagos on saturday. At jibowu, we joined a night bus to onitsha. We got to onitsha in the morning and booked another bus to Adamawa because, there wasn't straight bus to Jalingo.

The hours spent within Benue State alone was enough to travel to some states from Lagos and return that same day. For the first time, I saw the river benue, passed through katsina-ala, gboko, makurdi and wukari (yam market). A long journey though, i have never traveled that long distant by road in my entire life as my feet got swollen as a result of sitting all day.

We arrived Jalingo late in the night and everywhere was quiet, all we could see were achaba riders (commercial okada riders)and each of us waved down one to convey us to the family house. I wasn't too lucky as my luggage was too heavy for the bike man to move at a fast pace.Others with light luggage left me behind and the bike man (an hausa guy who doesn't understand english) took me to taraba state NYSC secretariat instead but, luckily for me, we met someone who spoke to him in hausa to take me to the family house.

The family house was (don't know if it is still) an uncompleted building with a church beside it. It has rooms both for ladies and guys.Corps members on ground received us and gave us where to put all our belongings.Brought out my waste bag,my bucket (i brought it from Lagos) and my torch, got some water and took a shower.After the shower, i retired to the room i shared with some other guys and for the first time,i passed the night in far away taraba.

We woke up very early the next day, freshened up and we all headed to the camp. At the entrance,we were all asked to put all our luggage on the head and from that period, i knew i was in for it.

(to be continued)

I servd in Lamma,Zing LGA, Taraba state, to all prospective taraba kopa, going to camp to spend the first three weeks, u dnt need to carry much load bcus u wudnt need them during ur 3wks in camp..just ur white's(shoes, shorts n shirts) n maybe few sunday church n homy wears. secondly taraba is quite far from anambra, because from wukari(in taraba...which u must pass through to Jalingo) is roughly 4-5 hours..so i mostly do night journey with luxury buses because believe me it was safer n u wld have time to prepare with daylight n do what others are doing.
i bet ur gona enjoy ur trip n stay because its gna be fun...buh if u want to get early u can board a bus going to adamawa and stop at jalingo..which is even faster and better. wish u well.
but dont get posted to Gembu oo(sardauna LGA) CUZ DATZ ANOTHER 12 HOURS FROM JALINGO..STILL IN THE SAME STATE.
goodluck

Gembu is not 12hrs. I served in Gembu, its 7-8 hours from Jalingo. The weather in Gembu is the best and there is no much stress for corpers there.
