Rumours: UNO State of Cameroon

Nigerian Newsnow was aware of the media circulation of a proposed country the UNO State of Cameroon to be created on July 10, 2020 by the United Nation. According to the map of the proposed country, Nigeria will part away with 24 local councils which were part of the green tree agreement, signed by former President Obasanjo for Nigeria and Paul Biya for Cameroun in 2006. However, report reaching us through Ait.live has debunked the news to be false. The Nigerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations Office in Nigeria have denied knowledge of creating a new country from Cameroon and Nigeria called the UNO State of Cameroon. Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary-General also stated that the United Nations does not create states.

According to Citimetric.com, International law states that people have the right to determine their own destiny, including political status. So, before a new country can be created, an international body, including the United Nation, cannot just take away territory without the permission of the original “host” state. To do this would be a violation of one of the defining rules of the system of states or countries.

About The United Nation

According to the UN website, the United Nation came into being in 1945, following the devastation of the Second World War, with one central mission: the maintenance of international peace and security. The UN does this by working to prevent conflict; helping parties in conflict make peace; peacekeeping; and creating the conditions to allow peace to hold and flourish. These activities often overlap and should reinforce one another, to be effective. The UN Security Council has the primary responsibility for international peace and security. The General Assembly and the Secretary-General play major, important, and complementary roles, along with other UN offices and bodies. Their primary purpose is not to create countries.
