The boundary disputes between Cross River and its neighboring Ebonyi state may soon be resolved as processes to a final and peaceful decision are in top gear.

This follows a joint government committee meeting on boundary dispute, chaired by the Deputy Governor Ivara Esu in his office recently in Calabar.

Esu while addressing members of the committee in the meeting stressed that it is an interactive one with the aim of collating and coordinating proposals and position statement for proper harmonization which according to him is “a prelude to the submission of the state’s position paper to the National Boundary Commission”.

Esu emphasized that the focal areas Yala/Izzi, Obubra/ Abakaliki, Obubra/Ikwo and Abi/Ikwo were been carried along, adding that the interactive session aims at finding a lasting solution to the boundary skirmishes.

The Permanent Secretary Conflict Resolution and Management in the office of the deputy governor, Clement Ntui, on his part said the essence of the meeting is to achieve peace and engender development and progress.

Furthermore, Clement who commended the manner in which the deputy governor handled sensitive issues arising therefrom added that “government is concerned about the wanton destruction of lives and properties that normally characterize such communal clashes” and expressed hope that lasting solutions will soon be attained.

Other members who attended the meeting were also positive that lasting peace will soon prevail between the two states as a result of the concerted effort being put in place by the governments of both states.

The session was attended by representatives of the affected communities, Chairmen of the local government areas concerned, some members of the Assembly and other stakeholders.
