    Buhari: Nigeria will not be used to destabilise Cameroon

    Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated that his country will not be used as a staging area to destabilise Cameroon.  

    President Buhari’s decision is contained in a communiqué published by the Nigerian Vanguard newspaper, issued at the end of the 6th session of the Cameroon-Nigeria Trans-Border Security Committee held in Abuja.

    “Series of political events in the two countries have led to new security challenges threatening the peaceful co-existence along the common borders”, the communiqué read in part. 

    “Nigeria will take necessary measures within the ambit of the law to ensure that her territory is not used as a staging area to destabilise another friendly sovereign country,” it quoted President Buhari as saying. The communiqué cited that both countries agreed to collaborate through their respective agencies for combating money laundering and financing of terrorism.

    According to the communiqué, the two countries signed an agreement on Non-proliferation of Small Arms and Light Weapons, agreed to collaborate in sensitising Nigerians living in the Bakassi area to live in peace and to abide by the laws and regulations of their host country, affirmed both countries determination to explore other sources of funding for the Multinational Joint Task Force, and also recommended that the security agencies of the two countries should strengthen the fight against ‘crimes along the land and maritime borders’.

    The communiqué was signed by the Nigerian Head of Delegation, Brig.-Gen Emmanuel Ndagi, Director of Defence Affairs, Office of the NSA, and Head of the Cameroon Delegation, Mr Rene Sadi, Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation.
