Heads of delegations at the Cameroun-Nigeria Mixed Commission have urged the United Nations, UN, to expedite action towards continuation of demarcation of boundary between Nigeria and Cameroun.
This was contained in a press statement issued to Nigerian Pilot by the National Boundary Commission’s Resident Information Office, Mr. Kabir Isa Bala, in Abuja yesterday.
The statement revealed that the meeting recently held in Yaoundé, the Cameroun’s capital, was resolved for the two countries to refrain from embarking on any further development project in the grey areas along their boundary corridors pending the conclusion of the demarcation exercise.
It said that the meeting requested the UN to implement the socio-economic projects for the affected communities along the boundary.
According to the statement, additional projects, including the construction of a bridge over Mayo Tiel River and provision of related infrastructure along Jabbi Lamba on the Nigerian side and Garoua on the Cameroun corridor, would enhance integration among border communities.
While appreciating the progress made on Pillar Emplacement Project, the meeting requested the UN to proceed with the procurement processes for Lot 4 towards the emplacement of the remaining pillars.
The chairman of the Cameroun-Nigeria Mixed Commission said the meeting was to initiate a fund raising campaign to replenish the already depleted trust fund of the commission for the continuation of demarcation project and confidence building processes among border communities.
It said that the meeting recognised the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari and his Camerounian counterpart, Paul Biya, for quick and peaceful demarcation of border lines between the two countries.
Meanwhile, the statement quoted the head of the Secretariat of Cameroun-Nigeria Mixed Commission in Nigeria and director general, National Boundary Commission, Dr. Mohammed Bose Ahmed, as saying that an extra-ordinary meeting of Joint Technical Team and Sub Commission on Demarcation for resolution of outstanding disagreement on skipped areas was to hold between now and September this year.
Ahmed said that the next meeting of the heads of delegations of the commission slated for November would be hosted by Nigeria.
According to the statement, the commission was established pursuant to the Joint Communiqué adopted at the summit held in Geneva between President Biya and former President Olusegun Obasanjo, in the presence of the then UN Secretary-General Mr Kofi Anan on November 15, 2002.
