A Nobel Laureate at Watbridge Hotels, Uyo

By Joshua Akpan

On November 27, 1895, Swedish inventor, chemist and occasional poet, Alfred Nobel instituted the famous Nobel Prize, to bequeath a lasting legacy in the fields of science, medicine, literature and governance. Nobel is also known for inventing the Dynamite.

In 1986, history was made, when the Nobel Foundation, at The Stockholm Concert Hall in Sweden, welcomed its first-ever Black and African winner. Akinwande Oluwole Babatunde Soyinka, born July 13, 1934, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria, had etched his name among the pantheons of Nobel laureates by winning the prize in Literature.

His Prize Motivation by the Nobel family wrote of Soyinka as ‘who in a wide cultural perspective and with poetic overtones, fashion the drama of existence’.

Wole Soyinka is among Watbridge Hotels Hall of Famers. It is this attention to intellectual class that makes Watbridge Hotels stand out.

A spacious ambience, a super poolside, a first-of-its-kind Guest Library in the hotel industry, shops, spa, saloon, exotic rooms, secured environment, located right in the heart of Uyo opposite the iconic Ibom Hall, all make the top-rated hotel ‘A Home Apart’.

It is so fitting that Watbridge Hotels recognises legends and society.
