The Consulate General of Nigeria, Buea, Republic of Cameroon is pleased to publish the maiden edition of her official website, that provides facts on Nigerians and highlights the various services rendered by the Mission.

The Mission is strategic and one of the oldest Nigerian diplomatic posts abroad, established in 1961. It is charged basically with providing Consular services for teeming population of Nigerians living in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon. These Nigerians constitute over 65% of estimated four million Nigerians residing in Cameroon.

The strategic nature of the Mission is hinged on historical and geographical ties between Nigeria and Anglo -Saxon Cameroon. Anglo-Saxon Cameroon was administered by Britain as part of Nigeria, until 1961 plebiscite when  the Southern part  of Cameroon voted to join French Cameroon that had already gained independence on 1st January 1960.
