Dr Richard Oji, the Director of Interstate Boundaries at the National Boundary Commission (NBC), says the agency has so far resolved no fewer than 30 boundary disputes across the country.

Oji made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Abuja.

NAN reports that NBC was established in 1990 to resolve emerging boundary issues across the country.

The director said boundary crises were an emerging trend, stressing that they were as old as man and would keep coming.

“We have about 86 interstate boundaries in the country and in the area of conflict resolution we were able to resolve about 30 disputes.

“But even when we have resolved a dispute, some other issues keep emerging and we keep intervening. Our job is not only demarcation but delineation and determination of the boundaries.

“Since the beginning of the new administration in NBC under the leadership of Mr Adamu Adaji, we no longer go back to what we have already done,” Oji said.
