Nigeria Pushes Biya For Urgent Dialogue To Resolve Crisis Rocking Southern Cameroons

The Federal Republic of Nigeria has urged the government of Cameroon to engage in an inclusive, and pacific dialogue with leaders of Southern Cameroons to put a lasting end to the crisis currently rocking the Southern and Northern Zones of Southern Cameroons. 

The Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, was speaking to Camerounese Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation, Rene Emmanuel Sardi, Tuesday November 15 2017, during an audience granted the Camerounese delegation in Nigeria State house.

According to Prof Osinbajo, the influx of refugees from Southern Cameroons and closure of Nigeria-Cameroon borders, has remained preoccupying thing in the mine of the Nigerian government. He urged the government of LRC to bury hatchet and incorporate warring factions in dialogue that will bring the country to its stability.

Speaking in diplomatic terms, Prof Osinbajo, assured that Nigeria remains committed to the peace, security and territorial integrity of neighbouring countries in the sub region.

Osinbajo said the relationship between Nigeria and Cameroun has continued to grow strong since bilateral relations were established in the 1960s.

He added that this was evident in the cooperation between both countries in the war against Boko Haram and terrorism.

“We appreciate the brotherhood and respect between both countries and the leaders. That shared commitment to peace and fighting extremism is one of the reasons for the good relationship,” the VP said.

He also assured the Camerounese delegation that the Federal Government and President Muhammadu Buhari will continue to extend its hand of fellowship to the Camerounese government to maintain the peace and security in both countries which share common borders.

The Special Envoy, who delivered a special message from the Cameroonian President Paul Biya, extended the Camerounese President’s gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria’s security agencies for its cooperation in the fight against insurgency.

While citing the special relationship between President Buhari and his Cameroonian counterpart, Sadi said the Cameroonian government is grateful for the support Nigeria has provided his country over the years.

“Following the return to Nigeria of President Buhari after successful medical treatment in the UK, the Camerounese people share in the joy of their Nigerian brothers and sisters to see him back home to carry on the daunting mission of nation building in very good health,” he said.
