In a jointly signed communique, they resolved to hasten the boundary demarcation so as to address the lingering ethnic crisis at their border communities.

The communique also stated that Fulani herdsmen should refrain from trespassing and occupying farmlands and communities in the border areas by obeying the ranching law of the state governments.

Governors Ortom and Sule also urged farmers and herders not to take laws into their hands.
