Presidents Biya, Buhari Merge Ambitions
<![CDATA[Presidents Biya, Buhari Merge Ambitions
The two leaders expressed their determination at a State banquet in Abuja organised in honour of Cameroon’s Presidential couple.
It took well over two hours for Cameroonian and Nigerian leaders, President Paul Biya and Muhammadu Buhari respectively to go through the items programmed for the State banquet organised in the Nigerian capital, Abuja yesterday evening.
Accompanied by their wives, Mrs Chantal Biya and Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, the evening’s ceremony which took place in the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, witnessed a medley of activities epitomised by the speeches of the two Presidents. It was equally spiced by five different dance groups, one of which came all the way from Cameroon. As one would have expected, the two Presidents used this occasion to once more announce their determination to eradicate the Boko Haram insurgency while expressing their deep felt sympathy to the families that have fallen victim to Boko Haram attacks.
They equally renewed their commitment to identify the diverse areas through which they can hinge cooperation between the two nations and enhance economic development. This will among others take the form of regular economic forums organised in both countries with the aim of strengthening and formalising trade between the two countries.
