bilateral and regional cooperation against terrorism, violent extremism and cross-border crimes.
According to Femi Adesina, Senior Adviser to the president on media, new bilateral issues will be discussed as well as new agreements signed during the visit.
“It is expected that new agreements to strengthen existing ties, as well as trade and economic relations between Nigeria and Cameroon, will be concluded and signed before the end of President Biya’s visit.
“A joint communiqué on the visit and the talks between the two presidents and their officials will be issued before President Biya’s departure from Abuja on Wednesday,” the statement said.
The Cameroonian president’s visit is expected to end today.
