Indigenes of Akwa Ibom State have rejected proposal for the establishment of state police but agreed for more revenue allocation to states.

The indigenes whose views were sampled in the ongoing constitution preview across the country said state governors would likely use the police to victimise their political adversaries.

Besides state police and more resource allocation, indigenes in Abak Federal Constituency, condemned the integration of Nigerians through indigeneship. They added that the act would offer more grounds for marginalisation as powerful and rich people from other states would take advantage of the local people.

The representative of Abak/Etim Ekpo and Ika Federal Constituency, Emmanuel Ekon, thanked the people for the large turnout. He promised to deliver their messages to National Assembly.

In Oron, Eket and Itu, the people canvassed for the autonomy of local governments, financial autonomy of the National Assemblyand judiciary, and dissolution of the state electoral bodies. They also advocated single terms of five years for presidents and governors.
