Monday Noah in his work "Ibibio Pioneers in Modern Nigerian History" writes: The Ibibio occupy mostly the mainland parts of the Cross River State and constitute the fourth largest ethnic group in Nigeria. The major Ibibio sub-groups include the Oron, Eket, Ibuno, and Annang and there are also some Ibibio communities in most of the fishing settlements along the estuary of the Cross River. The Efik people of Calabar are descendants of Ibibio people.

The Ibibio have lived in the CrossRiver area of modern day Nigeria for several hundred years, and while written information about them only exists in colonial records from the late 1800s on, oral traditions have them in the region much earlier than this. With common ancestors, the Ibibio also include the Annang and the Efik, Oron and Eket with combined population of over ten million References.

Many Nigerian historians are at present engaged in the study of various aspects of the history of their country. Both micro and macro history deserve further study, analysis, and interpretation. Professional historians in Nigerian universities are in the vanguard of the present phase of meaningful activity in the study of Nigerian history. The study of political history remains a continuing challenge. the first attraction in this sphere of activity is the study of the large kingdoms and states as well as the study of the large non-centralized ethnic groups. the history and ethnography of Benin, Oyo, Sokoto, Kanem-Bornu, Nupe, Tiv, Igbo, and Efik have received much attention from Nigerian and foreign scholars.
