IbibioInformation about the Ibibio
The Ibibio people were traditionally in the same state as the Efik and Annang - Cross River State, named after the Cross River. Recently though, the state was partitioned into two, Akwa-Ibom state and Cross River. Akwa-Ibom state is made up of the related Annang tribe and the Ibibio tribe. There are two other tribes that live in the coastal areas with a language that cannot be understood by the Annang or Ibibio.
Because of the larger population of the Ibibio people, they hold political control over Akwa-Ibom State, but government is shared with the Annangs. The political system follows the traditional method of consensus. Even though elections are held, practically, the political leaders are pre-discussed in a manner that is benefiting to all.
