The Legislators further called on the Chairmen of the 21 LGCs to cooperate with the ministry and other authorities that will be assigned to carry out the exercise so as to check the lingering disputes on borders among communities.

Further more, the Honourable House has mandated its Committee on Legislative compliance to monitor/supervise the implementation of the of the resolutions so as to end troubles among communities.

The adoption of the resolutions followed a motion of urgent public interest brought before the resumed plenary session of the assembly by the Member representing Yola North constituency, Hon. Hamidu Sajo Lekki.

Earlier, speaking on the motion tagged,” Need to identify existing Boundary Demarcation between Yola North and Yola South LGAs” Hon.Lekki, informed his colleagues that the LGA he is currently representing was curved out of Yola LGA and was called Jimeta LGA.

Hon. Lekki posited that it was later named Yola north LGA with 11 political wards and shares boundary with Yola South LGA, and observed with concern the gradual dismantling of signs on boundary, saying lack of clear cut demarcation is causing a lot of problems in area of revenue generation and issuance of indigene letter among others.

The lawmaker told his colleagues that if the situation is not attended to will likely result into a conflict between the 2 LGCs, and that the resultant effect will be on those conducting their lawful businesses around the border areas.

Hon. Hamidu Sajo Lekki prayed his colleagues to join him in calling on Governor Fintiri to direct the Ministry and Surveyor General to identify the already existing boundary between the 2 LGAs.

Speaking on the motion, the Member representing Verre constituency, Hon. Abdullahi Umar Yapak, commended Hon. Lekki for bringing the matter before Honourable house, saying that his constituency has its share of the boundary problems between Fufore, Yola south and Mayo Belwa.

On his part, the Deputy Speaker of the House, Hon. Pwamwakeno Mackondo(Numan) said that the issue of boundary is a delicate issue everywhere, saying that it appears the National Boundary Commission is not doing much on the issue.

Other legislators including Hon. Simon Isa(Song), Hon. Kate Raymond Mamuno (Demsa), Hon. Hammantukur Yettisuri(Jada Mbulo), Hon. Abubakar Isa (Shelleng), Hon. Umar Nashon Gubi(Nasarawo Binyeri) and Hon. Adwawa Dongolok who spoke on the motion, lauded the sponsor, and called for urgent action towards addressing it.
