They however voted against the payment of compensation in perpetuity to Cross River and every community in Nigeria that had lost territories to other countries.

The conference also put the adoption of the recommendation to expunge the Land Use Act from the constitution on hold, as it could not reach consensus on the matter.

The conference thereafter adjourned plenary until 9:00 a.m. on Monday, 26 May.
