Nigeria-Cameroon border in Cross River State
The Federal Government of Nigeria and Cameroon are finalizing plans to demarcate the borders through boundary demarcation exercise.
Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and minister of justice revealed this in a meeting with the special representative of the United Nation’s Secretary General Mahamat Salem Annadif.
In Malami’s words “I wish to assure you that the Nigerian delegation is confident that under your leadership, the Cameroon-Nigeria Mixed Commission, (CNMC) will continue to achieve more successes”.
“Particularly, in its efforts to permanently demarcate the boundary between Cameroon, and Nigeria, in line with the judgment of the International Court of Justice and other relevant Treaties and Declarations.
“I wish to assure you that the Nigerian delegation is confident that under your leadership, the Cameroon-Nigeria Mixed Commission, (CNMC) will continue to achieve more successes,” Malami said.
Malami stated that the FGN will appreciate if most areas of disagreement are resolved and demarcated in line with the judgement of International Court of Justice without fear or favour.
“The proposed session of the Cameroun-Nigeria Mixed Commission (CNMC) that will be convened soon in Yaounde, will pave the way for landmark achievements, including the demarcation exercise,” he stated.
Last week, the Federal Government of Nigeria through Babatunde Raji Fashola had revealed that the 1.5km Nigerian-Cameroon double lane bridge linking both countries from Ekot-Mfum, Etung Local Government Area of Cross River state will boost needed African trade between both nations.
