The US Secretary of state Rex Tillerson will today arrive Abuja. Mr Tillerson will become the highest ranking official in the Trump administration to visit Nigeria.
A statement by Press Advisory from the US embassy says Mr Tillerson will hold talks with President Muhammadu Buhari tomorrow.
Mr Tillerson has been on a weeklong tour of Africa. He has visited the horn of Africa just days after he announced a new five hundred and thirty three million dollars aid package for Africa.
Mr Tillerson’s trip to Nigeria is coming weeks, after the recent mass kidnapping of schoolgirls in Nigeria.
When Mr Tillerson meets President Muhammadu Buhari, both men are expected to discuss counter terrorism efforts and humanitarian issues in the North East and Lake Chad Basin.
