The Special Adviser to the Governor on Peace Building and Conflict Resolution, Chief Edwin Uzor, has assured communities involved in land disputes that Delta State Government will leave no stone unturned in ensuring lasting peace.

Chief Uzor stated this when he went on a fact-finding mission to disputed lands in Obodogwugwu community, Okpanam in Oshimili North Local Government Area and the boundary dispute between Issele-Uku in Aniocha North Local Government Area and Ubulu-Okiti in Aniocha South Local Government Area.

Referring to Issele-Uku/Ubulu-Okiti boundary dispute, Chief Uzor noted that the tussle had lingered for some time, stressing that the Directorate of Peace and Conflict Resolution had been on the matter to ensure lasting peace for both communities.

While assuring them of amicable resolutions, the Peace Advocate commended both communities for their peaceful disposition, even as he enjoined them to continue in the brotherly coexistence without resorting to violence or rancor.

According to him, “what we have advised is that the issue of land sales should stop, they should stop selling lands”, adding, the state government will come out with a position that will enable both communities coexist peacefully”.
