Cameroon. The multi-year border dispute between Cameroon and Nigeria over the Bakassi Peninsula was re-updated in March. Nigeria accused Cameroon of gathering at least 5,000 soldiers at the border, claiming they were preparing for a strike. The conflict has been going on since 1994 when Cameroon brought it to the International Court of Justice in The Hague (The Hague Court), where the matter is still pending. As a result of the alleged Cameroonian troop contractions, the Nigeria called on the Hague Court to close the case. Instead, they wanted to resolve the conflict through direct negotiations with Cameroon.

The organization makes annual assessments of, among other things, which country in the world is the most corrupt, and it could conclude that Cameroon in that respect has passed Nigeria and thus was considered the world's most corrupt country.
