Ogun seeks cooperation in boundary disputes

OGUNTHE Ogun State Government yesterday called on neighbouring African countries to join hands with the Nigerian Government to find lasting solution to the boundary- related disputes in order to bring about peaceful co-existence among their citizens.

The State Deputy Governor, Mrs. Yetunde Onanuga made the call at a stakeholders meeting hosted by the State Government on the resettlement of communities affected by the re-demarcation of Nigeria-Benin International boundary, held at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

Onanuga stated that leaders across African countries should endeavour to sustain the existing cordial relationship in the interest of international peace, which she noted would translate to positive socio-economic values among the citizens.

She expressed Government readiness to resettle the inhabitants of the affected areas, especially by the construction of a resettlement centre initiated by the National Boundary Commission at Igbokofi and Omilende at the Nigeria-Benin boundary in Yewa North Local Government Area of the State.
