Cameroon-Nigeria border: Nwa MP raises concerns over non-integration of villages into constituency.
By Macwalter Njapteh in Yaounde
The Member of Parliament for Nwa, Hon Adamu Edward has raised concerns over the integration of some six villages within his constituency in the Donga Mantung division of the North West region.
The villages concerned including Antere, Ikiri, Ambah, Ancha, Manchuah and Bang had been handed over to Cameroon as one of the terms of the famous Green Tree Agreement signed between Cameroon and Nigeria to put to rest the conflict over the Bakassi peninsula.
During the the April 30 plenary session at the Glass House, the MP quizzed the Minister Delegate at the Ministry of External Relations in charge of relations with the Commonwealth, Felix Mbayu. The minister had showed up at the National Assembly to defend a bill to authorize the Head of State ratify an accord with Brazil allowing Cameroonians likewise, Brazilians imprisoned in either country, to be allowed to decide where to serve the prison terms.
