The Federal Government of Nigeria and Cameroon are working on final plans to demarcate the borders of the 2 nations through the boundary demarcation exercise. This was disclosed by the Attorney- General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami on Wednesday, in Abuja in a meeting with the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for West Africa and the Sahel, Mahamat Saleh Annadif.

“I wish to assure you that the Nigerian delegation is confident that under your leadership, the Cameroun-Nigeria Mixed Commission, (CNMC) will continue to achieve more successes, Malami said. Particularly, in its efforts to permanently demarcate the boundary between Cameroun and Nigeria, in line with the judgment of the International Court of Justice and other relevant Treaties and Declarations,” he added.

Malami stated that the FG will appreciate if all aspects of the areas of disagreement are resolved and demarcated in accordance with the judgment of the 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.
