Calabar And Uyo: Comparison by fratermathy(m): 2:11pm On Sep 03, 2015
Hello Nairalanders,
A friend sent this to me :
"I have a little bit of confusion. I have been given two offers in Calabar and Uyo and now I have difficulties knowing which to accept and where to go. Infact the offer is from a firm that has branches in both cities so the pay is basically same but I was told to choose where to work out of the two cities. I also intend running a Masters programme and that has to factor in my choice since both cities have varsities. I have made different researches online but can't see much to convince me and I haven't been to either place before. Please help me if you are familiar with the two cities. I need to know which is better in terms of cost of living, social life, University standard, accomodation, peace, ability to gain another job(I don't intend working in the company for long), etc. I'll really appreciate because I want to be clear-headed with my decision. "

When I got the broadcast message, I didn't know what to reply cos I believe I haven't understood both cities well enough so I decided to bring it here so that my able Nairalanders who are from the region or cities and familiar with them can help. So over to you now my friends. Help us compare.

Comparing Calabar and akwa ibom is lyk comparing messi and mikel, abi na because the name start with m
Re: Calabar And Uyo: Comparison by saaedlee: 2:49pm On Sep 03, 2015
I have worked in both cities; AKS and CRS, I actually got my first degree from the former. Hence comparing both cities:
++Housing: Uyo is cheaper in terms of accommodation as CRS is more of a tourist destination.
++ Hospitality: UYO, you get more favors from the Ibibios of AKS than the Efiks of CRS. And AKS has got generous politicians than CRS grin
++Education (M.Sc): Get prepared to study hard in Uniuyo, whereas Unical grades can be manipulated.
++ Nightlife: Uyo is more secured with availability of street lights and funfilled, but CRS is a place to be during yhe Christmas period.
++ Feeding: foodstuff are cheaper in AKS than CRS.
++Security: AKS has a more comprehensive security system than CRS
++Job Opportunities: None

From assessment, choose Uyo but traveled to Calabar during the yuletide season

Oh thanks for your COMPREHENSIVE comparison. I'm already noting things now. On the issue of university, would you say UNIUYO has a better academic standard than UNICAL? what about the school environment.? Which do u think is more conducive. Thanks in anticipation.

Oh yes, both UNICAL and UNIUYO have high academic standards but UNIUYO is better.
Uniuyo has a more conducive environment for learning judging by the permanent site location.

If you know what's good for you go to calabar, it's a more developed city with more accommodating people as for the school, I don't know anything about Unical but I can tell you that Uniuyo is an academically bankrupt school with a lot of semi-literate lecturers and also I guarantee you'll be tearing your hairs out by the fistfuls by the time you're done with your registrations, you'll still be carrying files and folders all over the place and standing in queues by the time exams start.
Nothing is cheap in Uyo except transportation.

oh my God mr fratermathy this guy has said it all. I graduated at university of uyo too and my nursery school was in calabar. So these guy has said it all. In education aspect, uniuyo is so strict, while unical could be sorted for, in hospitality and finances and everything uyo has cheaper cost of items than calabar, in security uyo is more more safer, calabar is a town inhabited with cultist and ritualist. I grew up in calabar but had my varsity education at uyo. So join me and saaedlee and choose uyo.
