The President of France, Francois Hollande has called on Cameroon and Nigeria to work in synergy in the fight against Boko Haram.

Hollande, who invited some African leaders including President Paul Biya to attend Paris Summit in May last year to discuss the ways for fighting against Boko Haram, said he is willing to hold another similar consultation to intensify the fight against Boko Haram.
