The Chad-Cameroon border that was closed in Kouserri in March last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been reopened.
The official reopening ceremony took place on Thursday, June 17, on the Ngueli bridge in Kousseri linking Chad to Cameroon and was presided over by Souleyman Abakar Adam, the Chadian Minister of Public Security.
The event was witnessed by General Ousman Bassy Lougma, the Chadian Director General of the National Police.
The reopening of the border would facilitate the movement of persons and goods between the two countries, which was suspended since last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, there was no representative of the Cameroonian government at the ceremony.
