  • Brief info on Bakassi Local Government Area

    On December 12, 1996 the Bakassi Local Government Area was created out of what used to be known as Akpabuyo Local Government Area. With this creation, Bakassi continued to be an integral part of Cross River State bringing the number of Local Government Areas to 18.

    There are ten Council Wards in the Local Government Area:

    Abana
    Akpa Nkaga
    Akwa
    Ambai Ekpa
    Amoto
    Archibong
    Atia Ema
    Efut/Inwang
    Ekpot Abia
    Odiong
    Bakassi Local Government Area, which is internationally known, remains one of Nigeria’s richest gulfs.

    She is bounded in the East by the Republic of Cameroon, in the South by Equatorial Guinea and the Bight of Bonny, in the West by the Cross River Estuary and North by Akpabuyo Local Government Area.

    Marine erosion, floods, oil spills/pollution, loss of diversity, poor quality of domestic water and frequent occurrence of fire disaster in the congested residential areas of Bakassi are serious environmental problems plaguing the area. Often, oil spills, ocean surge, tidal flows in Bakassi Local Government Area have led to impoverishment of the people.

    But Bakassi Local Government Area is the lifeline of Cross River State I terms of Crude Oil and aquatic food such as crayfish, fishes, shrimps, periwinkles in commercial and exportable quantities. Virtually all parts of Bakassi lie within the coastlines.

    It is located between latitudes 4° 43’ and 4° 55’ north of the equator and 8° 26’ E and 8° 38 east of the Greenwich meridian. The entire area is underlain by one major geological formation i.e. the sedimentary basin also bounded by volcanic intrusions of the Cameroon.

    The composition of the people is predominantly the Efiks and the Effiats who stay and do business together. Occupation of the people is fishing and trans-atlantic trading.
