BREAKING: US Secretary Of State, Rex Tillerson Arrives Abuja

The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has arrived the State House, in Abuja for a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was received by the Foreign affairs minister Geofrey Onyeama at the forecourt of the Villa.

This will be his first trip to Africa as the senior-most US diplomat and since his arrival in the continent last Wednesday; he has visited Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya.

He is expected to stay for several hours before heading for home in the early evening.

He had initially been scheduled to stay there overnight, hold further meetings on Tuesday with US embassy staff and then fly back to Washington.

But the African tour has coincided with the shock announcement of a possible summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump over the nuclear standoff in the Korean peninsula.

Tillerson, while in East Africa, canceled scheduled events on Saturday on the grounds of ill-health.

“The secretary is not feeling well after a long couple days working on major issues back home such as North Korea and has cancelled his events for the day,” Goldstein said in a statement on Saturday.

He later said Tillerson was “feeling better” and would resume his schedule on Sunday.
