The council also set up economic team headed by Prof. Akpan Ekpo with a charge to organize economic summit in the area to change the orientation of most youths who see politics as the only means of livelihood as well as expose them to business opportunities that will make Etinan youths sit pretty in the society.
Etinan Elders appealed to well-exposed sons and daughters of the local government to use their acquired knowledge and contents to develop the area.
To those who are closer to the Hilltop mansion, the Elders Council enjoined them not to use such opportunity to backstab or victimise others but attract development to the area for the benefit of the masses.
In order to mitigate the pains the people of Etinan go through to get funds from banks, the Elders Council resolved to liaise with relevant stakeholders in the financial sector to bring back banks to the local government.
