According to Malcolm Milne, Deputy Commissioner in the Southern Cameroons in the years before reunification:

"the problems that would arise as a result of bringing together the British
and French systems of government ¼ were clearly foreseen from the outset. When Foncha’ s new government sought our views in 1959 we all advised of the difficulties (which have become plain for all to appreciate in the intervening 36 years). Foncha - and one must assume his government - went into the Conference knowing of Ahidjo’ s views. The door was open to an extension of the British Trusteeship of the Southern Cameroons if Foncha and Ahidjo had been unable to agree to final terms of unification between 11 February and 1 October 1961 ¼ Such further Trusteeship was not requested."
