The decaying relic of the abandoned Cultural Centre Complex, Calabar which had before now hosted several international and national events and programmes has been revamped and equipped with modern facilities ready for business.
Senior Special Adviser (SSA) to the Cross River State Governor on the Cultural Centre Complex, Mr victor Ita said the edifice is second only to the National Theatre, Igamu, Lagos. It is centrally located in the ancient city of Calabar and it is 10 minutes away from the Margaret Ekpo International Airport.
The SSA explained that the New Cultural Centre Complex is the most secured event selling space in Calabar and has over 2000 foyer with aerial view and over 400 capacity conference halls.
According to Mr. Ita, the New Cultural Centre Complex is designed in a manna that a car can drive straight into the stage and that the main bowl has a capacity of 1000 – 1500 persons with over 45 functioning air condition facilities.
He further said power supply is not a challenge in the refurbished cultural Centre Complex as there are two sets of generators on standby for plan ‘A’ and ‘B’, not depending on the Port Harcourt Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) for the supply of Electricity.
The rebased Cultural Centre Complex according to him is for multiple use like conferencing, multipurpose, event hall Theatre et cetera.
Also speaking at the occasion, the Director Denile Network Investment Limited, Mr. Azubike Jibunoh, a partner with the refurbished Complex who is a veteran in the business said his organization was ready with new programmes that will transform the Cultural Centre Complex and bring it back to life.
