One of the ways he and the leadership has been able to achieve this mean feat is the cooperation given to security agencies operating within Eket Local Government territory.The Police and other security agencies in Eket Local Government Area have been give maximum cooperation by the Honourable Frank Archibong led government which has made the discharge of their duties easy and smooth in combating crimes.The assistance given comes with basic support to help  security operatives carry out their duties effectively and today,the effort has  yielded fruits in the city to a peaceful and serene environment good for business and economic development.

For a government to succeed,the security of lives and properties of the people must be of paramount to such a government,this was the word of a Pan African Leader, Elder Statesman and great Niger Deltan,Chief Edwin Clark who made the postulation recently in an interview on a National TV when asked on his inputs on the raging insecurity situation in Nigeria.In line with the words of the leader of thought,the Honourable Frank Archibong led government in Eket Local Government Area has given maximum attention to the protection and safety of the lives and properties of the people,this has been  delivered on the  assigned duties and responsibilities of the loca government  administration effectively to the  people of Eket Local Government Area.

Prior to his emergence as the council boss,Eket Local Government Area had face some security challenges and social vices but due to the divine emergence of Mr.Frank Archibong as the Council Boss,Insecurity has become a thing of the past in the Local Government Council.One of the measures the Frank Archibong led government has put in place is the ban on Motorcycles popularly known as "Okada" from 6pm to help fight crime in the area because most of the  perpetrators of the babaric crimes can easily access any nook and cranny that cars or any other vehicle couldn't access.This was a welcome development by many who foresaw the importance of the action,though many kicked against it saying it will bring untold hardship on the people. As a people oriented leadership,on hearing the criticism of most of his people,the Local Government Boss had to provide over one hundred vehicles to help ameliorate the sufferings of the people from 6pm when the ban on motorcycles will begin.
