President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday accepted an invitation from President Paul Biya to visit Cameroon for talks on the intensification of cooperation between Nigeria and neighbouring countries in the war against terrorism.

This is contained in a statement by the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the President, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja.

The statement said the invitation was delivered to the president by the Cameroonian Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation, Mr Sadi Rene Emmanuel

It said Buhari had agreed to 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-emphasised the need for greater regional and international cooperation in the fight against the terrorists.

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 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 had assured 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,” Emmanuel said. (NAN)
