UN set to announce new nation cut out of Nigeria
The United Nations (UN) may report the production of another nation cut out from Nigeria and Cameroon.
The new nation, which might be made on July 10, 2020, will be known as the United Nations Organization (UNO) State of Cameroon.
This was revealed in a letter of the UNO State of Cameroon to Prof Martins Chia Ateh, the United Nations-delegated workshops facilitator in Cameroon and Nigeria, The Guardian reports.
The production of the new nation may see Nigeria losing 24 nearby government territories: Borno (five), Adamawa (12) and Taraba (seven).
It will have an all out landmass of 28, 214 square km with an expected populace of 20 million individuals.
As indicated by the BBC, everything began in 1919 after the finish of World War 1 when Germany was as yet in charge of ‘Kamerun’.
After the war which saw French, British and Belgian powers vanquishing the Germans, they partitioned the nation among France and Britain.
They gave Eastern Cameroon (the current Cameroon that communicates in French) to France and Western Cameroon (the English talking side) to Britain.
The two zones would later be assigned as an UN trust an area.
English government managed its region inside the public authority of Nigeria as Northern and Southern Cameroon despite the fact that they didn’t go along with it to Nigeria.
In January 1960, French Cameroon got autonomy from France, pronounced itself the Republic of Cameroon. Nigeria got autonomy too on October 1 the exact year.
A submission was directed with the goal that the individuals of British Cameroon would cast a ballot where they needed to go – Cameroon or Nigeria.
While the individuals in Northern British Cameroon said they would stay in Nigeria, the individuals of Southern British Cameroon said they would join the Republic of Cameroon.
Yet, when British Southern Cameroon joined the Republic of Cameroon which was colonized by France, things didn’t function as they had suspected.
They presently feel minimized in the nation, state they are not spoken to in government and are enduring segregation. Consequently, their mission to withdraw from the Republic of Cameroon.
Obasanjo, Biya surrendered domains in 2003
Previous President Olusegun Obasanjo and President Paul Biya of Cameroon had marked records to surrender their contested domains (Northern and Southern Cameroons) to the proposed UNO new nation.
The two chiefs were welcomed by the then UN Secretary-General late Kofi Annan and they marked the records in March 2003.
The UN, as per ongoing reports, vowed to actualise the new state on July 10, 2020.
As per Prof Ateh, the chambers to be surrendered to UNO State of Cameroon, incorporate Bama, Gwoza, Ngala, Kala/Balge, Dikwa.
Others incorporate Madagali, Michika, Mubi North, Mubi South, Mayo/Belwa, Toungo, Ganye, Serti, Hong, Jada, Maiha and Jada chambers.
The Guardian reports that the withdrawal of troops by President Biya from the southern piece of the arranged UNO State of Cameroon has made way for the making of the new state.
The president has at last complied with a request given by the United States to Cameroon to pull out its soldiers from the southern piece of UNO State of Cameroon.
Inhabitants of that part were energized over the consolidation of their territory with Northern Cameroon in Nigeria.
The Southern Cameroon inhabitants have since a year ago during their disturbances to withdraw labeled the UNO State of Cameroon as “Ambazonia.”
On UN’s making of another nation in Africa, Ateh expressed: “I should hit you up once the United Nations gets done with an official declaration on the presence of UNO State of Cameroon to the global network.”
The UN, as indicated by ongoing reports, vowed to actualise the new state on July 10, 2020.
In the interim, the Secretary-General of UN, Antonio Guterres has started the cycle of sensitisation towards the July 10 date of making the new state for the English talking side of Cameroon.
