The Speaker, Akwa Ibom House of Assembly, Mr Onofiok Luke, has said that arrangement is underway to establish a Security Trust Fund for security officers to ensure continuous peace in the state.
Luke said that the trust fund when established would provide funds for procurement of security equipment and provide support to personnel, who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.
The speaker who disclosed this in an interaction with members of Correspondents Chapel of Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Uyo, stressed that the fund, which would have the backing of the legislature, would take off next year.

He called on the people of the state to re-elect Emmanuel for continued peace and security of the citizenry.

He added that the governor has through his industrialisation programme built industries in the state that were nonexistence in the 31 years of the state’s creation.
