Cameroon's General Consul To Nigeria Lobbies For More Penetration Of Goods From Cameroon Into The Nigerian Market

The Consul-General of Cameroon in Lagos, Nigeria, Dr Paul Ekorong a Dong, on Thursday appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to give waivers for more Cameroonian products to be in Nigerian markets. Ekorong a Dong said in Lagos that Cameroon had over the years been approaching the Nigerian government to allow more Cameroonian products into the Nigerian markets. Cameroonian products namely wood, soap, oil, chocolate and cocoa are prohibited to be exported into Nigeria by the Nigerian Government.The consul-general said the current trade relation between both countries was more favourable to Nigeria as there are more Nigerian products in Cameroon.

Ekorong a Dong expressed optimism that the waivers would enhance win-win trade cooperation between both countries. The envoy said that within the last four years, Nigeria had become Cameroon’s world largest economic partner followed by France. “Since our independence, France had always been our world largest economic partner, but today, Nigeria has taken over from France. “This is an indication of the level of trade and vitality of relations going on between Nigeria and Cameroon,’’ he said.
