Abstract:The aim of this paper is to examine the factors that hindered the urban development of Calabar and to show how the development of water transport by the federal and state governments as well as the construction of the Calabar-Itu-Ikot-Ekpene highway changed the ancient slave port city of Calabar into an urban centre.
