Benue, Nasarawa to demarcate boundary January 2022

Published

on

BENUE and Nasarawa State governments have agreed to demarcate the boundary between the two states in January 2022.

Deputy Governor of Benue State, Benson Abounu, disclosed this to newsmen after a meeting with his Nasarawa State counterpart, Dr Emmanuel Akabe held at the new banquet hall of Government House, Makurdi on Tuesday.

Benue deputy governor said the boundary communities had been adequately sensitized about the exercise and added that political solution will be applied in Yelewata and Torkula where there are disagreements.

Abounu noted that despite the fact that Yelewata had been authoritatively certified to belong to the Benue State, the legal instruments of 1916, 1919 and 1924 bequeathed by the colonial masters did not reflect the realities on the ground.

He said: “Our standpoint has been that where possible, a political solution should be found for such problems.

“You have Yelewata as a town populated by citizens of Benue, how peaceful will it be if you divide that town.”

Earlier in a communique signed by the two deputy governors and the Director-General of National Boundary Commission, Surv. Adamu Adaji, the two states resolved that the National Boundary Commission should communicate the exact date for the demarcation exercises.

They also resolved that the two states provide four-wheel vehicles and other logistics for the demarcation exercise.
