Mr Biya has been in power since 1982.

The Nigeria civil war which lasted for 3years between 1966-1970 claimed the lifes of millions of civilians.

Mr Buhari, said this in a statement through his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said he pledged to support the country against threats by successionists, from English speaking region of Cameroon, who are agitated for power.

Mr Buhari, in a meeting with Mr Felix Mbayu, a special envoy from Mr biya, said “Nigeria will offer any support whatsoever to ensure that the Republic of Cameroon remains undivided.

"Nigeria is currently aware of the agitation movement led by the seperatists, so it is the duty of Nigeria to ensure that Cameroon is stable and unified. That is why when I first came into office in 2015, I immediately visited all our neighbours because, we are all updated on the values of good neighborliness" Buhari said.
