Foreign Affairs Ministry and UN Office in Nigeria denies knowledge of Uno State of Cameroon

By Sadiyat Dosunmu

The Nigerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations Office in Nigeria have denied knowledge of the carving out of a country from Nigeria and Cameroon.

The new country whose name is Uno State of Cameroon was billed for proclamation by the United Nations on July 10, 2020.

In the map of the new country, Nigeria will lose 24 local councils which were said to be captured in the green tree agreement, signed by former President Olusegun Obasanjo for Nigeria and Paul Biya for Cameroun in 2006.

Though some online media referenced the agreement, which gave July 10, 2020, as date for implementation, a source in the united nations has described it as false, saying he does not create countries.
