Nigerians urged to be law abiding in Cameroon

Nigerians urged to be law abiding in Cameroon


he Nigerian Consul General to Cameroon Gordon Harry Bristol has urged his follow country men living in Cameroon to be ever law abiding and cooperative with state authorities. Gordon Harry Bristol made this appeal during a 2-day-visit last week to the West province barely seven months after his arrival in Cameroon. While in Bafoussam he paid a courtesy call on Governor Pascal Mani and his entourage. He also visited the Attorney General to the Bafoussam High Court and the Royal Palace of Bafoussam where he was treated to some traditional dance exhibitions by His Majesty Njitack Ngompé Pélé.

This was also an opportunity for Gordon H. Bristol to discover the legendary architecture of Bafoussam palace and its museum. Talking to The Star Headlines, G.H. Bristol said he is working relentlessly to facilitate trade and cultural exchanges between Cameroon and Nigeria. In the near future, he went on, Nigerians will have to attend Youth Day/May 20 celebrations and participate in regional trade fairs in Cameroon and vice versa. He concluded that Cameroon is blessed with a very rich touristic heritage which has to be well preserved and marketed.

Later in the day, he was treated to a warm reception by all the Nigerians in Bafoussam before leaving the next day for Foumban where he equally paid a courtesy visit to His Majesty the Sultan of Foumban. He was accompanied in his safari by a 6-man delegation from the Nigerian Consulate in Douala including the Deputy Consul General.
