President Muhammadu Buhari has received the President of Cameroun, Paul Biya, who is on a two-day working visit to Nigeria.

Accompanied by his wife, the Cameroonian President, who entered the Presidential Villa at about 2:00 p.m. local time on Tuesday inspected a guard of honour mounted by the Presidential Guards before retiring into President Buhari’s office for bilateral talks.

Reports indicate that both countries will sign new agreements to strengthen existing ties, as well as trade and economic relations between Nigeria and Cameroun.

President Biya has been in Nigeria at least four times, including in 1983 and 1991.

In 2007, he attended the swearing-in of late President Yar’Adua and also attended the ceremonies marking Nigeria’s 50th independence anniversary in 2010.

One of the issues affecting both countries that the Presidents are likely to discuss is the insurgency in the North-East of Nigeria and the region of Cameroun on border.

Both countries have military agreements – the Multi National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) – that is aimed at ending the free movement of Boko Haram terrorists along their borders.
