Cameroon and the Obama administration have signed a memorandum allowing US technical assistance to be devoted to border controls throughout the national territory. The protocol agreement was signed between the Delegate General for National Security, Martin Mbarga Nguele and Ambassador Michael Stephen Hoza.
Ruthless and armed terrorist groups threaten peace and stability in Cameroon from the Far North and East regions because of porous borders and lax supervision. The US government now has the legal tools to provide Cameroon border posts including airports with a comparative identification system, which will be operated by the border Police.
On behalf of the Government of Cameroon, Martin Mbarga Nguele welcomed the continued support that the United States brings to Cameroon in the fight against terrorism. Ambassador Michael Stephen Hoza (seen here with the Cameroonian dictator) observed that, "This assistance is based on a deep partnership between the security forces against barbarian threats worldwide. Boko Haram is a barbarism, a nightmare for humanity. We must do everything to ensure a bright future for our children”.
