Buhari to visit Cameroon after Ramadan

Muhammadu Buhari AU summit

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday in Abuja accepted an invitation from President Paul Biya to visit Cameroon 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 Sadi Emmanuel, the Cameroonian Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization, President Buhari said he will visit Cameroon for the high-level talks soon after the end of the Ramadan fast.

President Buhari, who said that he was putting his experience as a former soldier to good use in the war against Boko Haram, re-emphasized 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, in supporting 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 Group of Seven (G7) meeting in Germany.

“I had to attend the meeting because Boko Haram has been internationalised 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.

    Imam Buhari does not have to wait till the moon-set of Ramadan. He can do as much azumi as he likes in Cameroon, after all virtually the whole of Northern French Cameroon is populated by good Muslims. While there he will be in good hands.

    Imam Buhari, barka da azumi.

      Buhari will set the time as he sees fit. Cowards like you need not worry.

        I bet you Imam is going no where in a Moslem populated country for fear of good Muslims discovering that he is not fasting but feeding fat during this holy moon of azumi. Ka ji ko?
