The retired general visited Cameroon’s Littoral Regional Governor; Ivaha Diboua at the Bonanjo based Governor’s office in Douala on Monday to discuss the possibility of a permanent Consulate staff residence in Douala.

During the visit, Olonisakin thanked the Governor and his etat majeur for the relentless protection of Nigerians and defence of their interest in the region and pledged to collaborate in fostering further cooperation.


He also used the opportunity to request a parcel of land to construct the staff residence in Douala.

The Governor also promised to liaise with the Douala consulate to find a solution to the staff residence project.

Olonisakin was also received by the Consul General to the Littoral and West regions, HRM Queen EFE A. Clark-Omeru.
