The Governors of Benue, Taraba and Nasarawa have met to cement the age-long relationship that existed among the States.
The meeting held this morning in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital where the guest Governors were represented by their deputies.
The host, Governor of Nasarawa state, Abdullahi Sule echoed that the relationship among the three states was more or less that of brothers than the physical locations by demarcations.
Sule said that the importance of the meeting could not be over emphasised as it is aimed at ensuring that both states realised the need for togetherness and working in harmony for the development of the entire zone.
According to Governor Sule, upon his assumption of office, his priority was to ensure that the insecurity challenges that were always confronting both Nasarawa, Benue and even Plateau states were resolved.
“I believe that after this meeting and since Taraba is far, the deputy governor along with his entourage will stay and sleep in Benue.
“Because in my view, we don’t need mediation for peace between the two states,” Governor Sule said.
ExpressDay reports that community leaders and senior security chiefs of Benue and Taraba state were in attendance at the meeting which took place in the Government House Lafia.
