Nsit Ibom Chapter
MBOHO MKPARAWA IBIBIO NSIT IBOM
Before the creation of Nsit Ibom Local Government Area in 1991, the geographical entity called Nsit Ibom was part of Nsit Ubium Local Government Area with headquarters at Ikot Edibon. So meetings and chapter activities of Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio were centred at Ikot Edibon.
Upon the creation of Nsit Ibom LGA in 1991 there came a need to establish a chapter of Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio in Nsit Ibom. And by July 1992 coordination activities started for the chapter which was formally inaugurated as the 9th Chapter of Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio by Akparawa Okon Imerh then President of Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio on 29th May, 1993 in a colourful ceremony chaired by Obong Precious Akpan (Obong Nsit) at the council hall of Afaha Offiong.
During that inauguration over 30 new members were inducted into the organization and the first chapter executives were also inaugurated. The pioneer Executive members had Akparawa Otuekongabasi Udousoro (a.k.a Youth Opinion) as Chairman. Other members were:
Akparawa Anthony Okpon – Vice Chairman
Akparawa Ime Udo – Secretary
Akparawa Mick Udofot – Treasurer
Akparawa Imaekop Enwang – Financial Secretary
Akparawa Monday Etokakpan – Assistant Secretary
Akparawaanwan Grace Edward Inyang – Women Leader
Akparawa Uyoata Ntong – P.R.O.
Akparawa Anietie Etukudo – Organising Secretary
After the Akparawa Otuekong Udousoro as the pioneer Chairman came Akparawa Anthony Okpon as the 2nd Chairman of MMI Nsit Ibom Chapter. Akparawa Uyai James Uyai came as 3rd chapter chairman between 2001 and 2006. The 4th chairman was Akparawa Ime Inyang between 2006 and 2010.
The incumbent and 5th chapter chairman of the chapter is Akparawa (Hon) Mfon Orok who was elected in December 2010.
The current Executive council is as follows:
Akparawa (Hon) Mfon Orok Chairman
Akparawa Cyril Ime Sampson Vice Chairman
Akparawa Fiokidaha Umoh Secretary ( now International Provost)
Akparawa Ubong Okoh Assistant Secretary
Akparawa Uwem Jonathan Financial Secretary

The chapter meets on every third Sunday of the month at a temporary secretariat Atanim Guest House No 12 Kings Street, Afaha Offiong.
The membership strength of the chapter has grown to 47 following the induction of 9 new members in 2014.
Nsit Ibom Chapter is soliciting for support for purchase of land to build her permanent secretariat. It is of note that the present administration of the chapter has been able to produce the 9th International president of Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio in the person of Akparawa (Elder) Monday Etokakpan together with the International Provost in the person of Akparawa Fiokidaha Umoh. To God be the glory.
