Before and during the Nigerian civil war, palm product was shipped from Ekpene Okpo, Ntak Ibesit, 8 km from Abak town. Abak is 18 km from Uyo, the state capital. It covers 304 km2. Abak has been neglected by successive Akwa Ibom state governments for political reasons. Before the civil war, Abak was Southeastern Nigeria’s economic powerhouse. Abak is home to the Nigerian Army’s Ibagwa Barrack.

Palm produce is the main industry. Abak Division was a notable producer of palm oil and kernel before the Nigerian civil war. Abak’s natural resources include sand, gravel, clay, salt, and crude oil (corked). The tropical rain forest provides plentiful palm products, cassava, and veggies.

Despite the arrival of Western culture and religion, Ekpo, Ekpe, Idiong, and Attat Utu-Ekpe still exist. Before European missionaries arrived in the mid-19th century, they were significant traditional government tools.
