The Clan heads of Igwo community in Obudu local government area, Chief Spokesman Agogo and his counterpart in Ntrigom, South Ukelle community of Yala, Chief Stephen Odom have blamed the National Boundary Commission for the protracted boundary crisis between communities in Cross River and their neighboring communities in Benue and Ebonyi states.

The duo made the allegation while speaking as guests on a radio program ‘The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo’ on HIt 95.9 FM, Calabar.

Chief Agogo alleged that the Commission had asked for money to complete the boundary demarcation exercise between Obudu and Vandeikya and despite a contribution of NGN1 million, the commission is yet to do so while Chief Odom maintained that despite several meetings with the commission including one presided over by the then acting President Yemi Osinbajo in February 2017, none yielded positive results.

Also, a caller who simply identified himself as Ekanem averred that enough has not been done by the Commission to delineate the boundary between Odukpani and Itu local government areas in Cross River and Akwa Ibom states.

A second caller who gave his name as Prince faulted the National Assembly members and the government for the protracted boundary crisis.
