AU concerned about Cameroon’s security situation

Moussa Faki Mahamat and President Biya

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, H.E. Moussa Faki Mahamat says the African Union is is concerned about the security and humanitarian situation in the sub-region.

He made the remark during an audience to him by President Biya at the Unity Palace recently.

In a toast delivered at the State Luncheon offered by the Presidential Couple, the Head of State reassured the worthy representative of the sub-region, of Cameroon’s full support for the success of his mandate. President BIYA also reiterated the country’s endorsement of the current reforms within the AU. He then spoke of the threats facing the continent, including socio-political crises and terrorist attacks. He called for more solidarity at the continental level to overcome terrorism as is the case in the Lake Chad Basin with the fight against Boko Haram.

On his part, Mr Moussa Faki Mahamat emphasised on “the fraternity and frankness” that marked his discussions with the Head of State. He denounced those who hasten to make judgments without necessary hindsight on the situation of African countries. The Chairperson of the AU Commission stated in clear terms that the Continental Organisation will support measures aimed at preserving the unity and stability of Cameroon – a major country on the continent. Mr Moussa Faki Mahamat later announced that he will reflect on a pathway to resolve the situation in the North-West and South-West Regions, once he returned to Addis Ababa.

The AU boss also called on political actors and the civil society to ensure a smooth running of the presidential election of 7 October 2018. He finally promised that AU observers will be present in Cameroon throughout the election.
