The Governor said, “ it has become necessary to constitute the state boundary commission because of the importance this administration attaches to ensuring lasting peace between Nasarawa State and her neighbours.

“We have already met with officials of the National Boundary Commission, and we are taking every step necessary to ensure proper delineation of boundary between our state and the neighbouring states of Benue, Plateau, Kaduna,  Kogi and the FCT.

Corereporters reported that the state boundary commission will be announced within the week and would be chaired by an individual from Keana.

He expressed satisfaction that members of the Tiv community in the state presented their demands to the government.   

“I told them what they are seeking for may take time, that its takes lobbying, unity and peace. That is how important it is for us to live with one another,” he stated.

Engineer Sule told the critical stakeholders, that Keana is not only important to the state but to the entire Northern Nigeria, following the discovery of oil in Keana, stressing that it is necessary that there is peace in Keana.
