Katsina and Jigawa state Governments have amicably resolved a border dispute mediated by the National boundary commission to foster peace and unity.
The negotiations between them began some years ago over some areas between Daura and Kazaure Emirates.
The conclusion of the mediation meeting between the stakeholders began with a courtesy visit to Governor Aminu Masari before going into the technical session and ratification of the agreement.
Katsina and Jigawa shares a common border stretching up to 163 kilometres and runs through five local governments under Daura emirate.
The boundary tracing and demarcation exercise is largely for administrative goals, as communities involved shares a lot in common.
Issues of land dispute can be among the most difficult problems to resolve considering its complexity.
The two-state represented by their deputy governors in the meetings described the peaceful resolution of the boundary issue as a step toward greater friendship.
