Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly through its Committee on Special

where inputs were gathered from members of the public and relevant
stakeholders on the bill seeking to establish the Akwa Ibom State
Utility Infrastructure Management and Control Agency –AKISMCA.
The Speaker of the House, Onofiok Luke, while declaring open the
public hearing held at the Old Chapel of the House of Assembly, said it
was in line with the resolve of the sixth assembly to carry the people
along in its lawmaking process, urging members of the public to always
take advantage of public hearings to contribute their quota for the
development of the state.
Chairman of the committee and member representing Ini State
Constituency, Emmanuel Ekpenyong, in his address stated that the bill,
when passed into law, will bring about job creation as well as boost the
state’s economy.
The lead presenter at the session, Barrister Patrick Umoh in his
presentation acknowledged that other states such as Lagos and Oyo had
previously initiated such laws, calling on the state legislature to
rigorously rectify parts of the bill which he noted reflected some
inconsistencies before the final draft is made ready for passage.

bill seeking to establish the Akwa Ibom State Utility Infrastructure
Management and Control Agency to regulate operations of new and existing
public infrastructure in the state is an executive bill forwarded to
the House by the state Decon. Governor, Udom Emmannuel.
