Nigeria: Tinapa, Africa's Premier Business-Tourism Resort Opens Monday April 2

Tinapa, Africa's Premier Business and Tourism Resort will be commissioned on Monday April 2, in Calabar. Tinapa, the cosmopolitan hub of Africa, is the utopian dream of Donald Duke, the governor of Cross River State in South Eastern Nigeria.

Tinapa is located on the Calabar River, and contiguous to the Calabar Free Trade Zone. Tinapa is the realization of an exciting dream of the first integrated business and leisure resort in Nigeria. Tinapa is the utopian dream of Donald Duke, the broad-minded governor of Cross River State in South Eastern Nigeria; to transform Calabar into a cosmopolitan business and tourist hub in Africa. And over $350 million have been spent in the development of Tinapa.

Top retailers in Nigeria and other countries have already signed up with Tinapa to benefit from Tinapa's large markets with four anchor emporiums covering a vast area exceeding 80 000m2. The four anchors will be supported by retailers catering to diverse markets including cosmetics, toys, books, and computers.

Entertainment will also be a key feature with restaurants, bars, nightclubs, hotels and leisure facilities incorporating golfers paradise, quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, etc. Cultural facilities incorporating an arts & crafts market as well as the aggressive promotion of agri-tourism will further increase the value of this massive development. The complimentary mix of facilities at Tinapa will enable tenants to profit from demand from both the leisure and business sectors.

Tinapa will be commissioned by President Olusegun Obasanjo of Nigeria.

I have also been contacted by this person, and it is, without a doubt, a scam.. DONT BELIEVE IT.... He claims to work at this hotel, but right after he first contacted me (to be a private esl teacher for his family) I googled him... gotta love the internet... and all these crazy and varied back stories came up.. then i got this site... I dont really know what his plan is... because besides a resume from the internet, he has no info, but after the first email he sent me he wanted to "make a contract" and fly me there.. I said "yeah right".. I wish we could catch him though... send some huge killer man there thinking that I would show up (a small girl) and have him attacked! Anyways, dont buy it!

My friend has been contacted by a "man" in Nigeria trying to get her to send him $3000.00 for a trip to TINAPA. Apparently this must be the "in" place for this type as well. We are having great fun here in the United States listening to all the "bull" he is emailing but I thought I would check out your website to see what all the fuss was about. ps: too bad we couldn't trap this scum-bag somehow since I know there is probably some dumb woman believing his crap.

There is no where in your website giving the type of Tinapa clip we watch on cnn, is that really the case? Do you have such a dry webpage?.After I boasted to a friend abroad about Tinapa, he wanted to know more cos he is regular visitor to Nigeria but I had nothing more to show.

I would also like to inquire about this personnel called Chen Lan. Is he a fictitious character who purports to work for Hotel-de-plaza and has some job on offer? Must be a scam-con game!!
