Presidency has confirmed that President Mohammadu Buhari would visit Cameroun after the Ramadam period to hold talks with his counterpart, Paul Biya, on how to combat Boko Haram insurgency that is wrecking havoc in the sub-region.
According to a statement by special adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, President Buhari will be in Cameroun on the invitation of President Biya.
Nigerian Pilot gathered that Buhari accepted an invitation from President Biya to visit Cameroun at his earliest convenience for talks on the intensification of cooperation between Nigeria and neighbouring countries in the war against Boko Haram and terrorism.
Receiving the invitation from Cameroun’s Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation, Mr. Sadi Rene Emmanuel, President Buhari said that he would visit Cameroon for the high-level talks soon after the end of the Ramadan fast.
Buhari, who said that he was putting his experience as a former soldier to good use in the war against Boko Haram, re-emphasised that greater regional and international cooperation was needed to end the atrocities of the terrorist group.
The president commended the efforts of all regional governments, including Cameroon, to support Nigeria in the war against Boko Haram, but called for even greater collaboration.
“I am happy that the president has sent you. As you must have observed, I was in Niger and Chad over this issue. I planned to be in Cameroon afterwards, but I received an invitation to attend the G7 meeting in Germany. I had to attend the meeting because Boko Haram has been internationalized and it was part of the discussions there,” he told Mr. Emmanuel.
The Special Envoy assured President Buhari of President Biya’s “fraternity, sympathy and brotherly commitment” to working with Nigeria to end the Boko Haram insurgency.
“Together we will reinforce our efforts, eradicate the scourge of terrorism and look forward to better things,” he told the president.
