Ambassador Tibor Nagy has said the Biya government won’t win the war in Southern Cameroons with a military strategy.

During a US Congress discussion on the anglophone crisis in Cameroon, Mr Nagy urged a devolution of power saying the government’s military response was only strengthening separatists.

This comes weeks after President Donald Trump announced his intention to terminate the eligibility of Cameroon for trade preference benefits under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).

“The truth is, it’s not going to be won militarily,” Nagy told a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.

As violence increases in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon, at least 530,000 people had been internally displaced, some fled to Nigeria.
