Alhaji Aminu Abdullahi Alkali, Taraba State’s deputy governor, has pushed pertinent authorities to supply border communities with necessities.

During a session hosted by the National Boundary Commission on Thursday, six deputy governors from states that share borders with Cameroon participated in his request.

The participating states—Borno, Taraba, Adamawa, Benue, Cross Rivers, Akwa Ibom, and Borno—emphasized the value of working together to address issues that communities along the Nigerian-Cameroonian international border confront.

Alkali, who also serves as the State Boundary Committee chairman, emphasized the necessity of taking proactive steps that, if implemented, may protect these communities from unwelcome incursions and strengthen their ability to withstand border-related difficulties.

He claimed that giving this proposal serious thought right now will greatly improve the capacities of local border police.

The deputy governor emphasized the need for teamwork in achieving the National Boundary Commission’s aims and objectives while simultaneously serving as the chairman of the State Boundary Committee.

He thanked the commission for its constant support and highlighted its prompt action in the recent border crises that affected communities in the states of Taraba and Gombe.

In his view, the joint effort of the National Boundary Commission and the deputy governors represents a common dedication to promoting effective border management plans and encouraging harmonious cohabitation across areas that share international borders.

He continued by saying that the workshop provided a crucial forum for discussion and collaboration in order to solve the particular difficulties that border communities face.
