United States Secretary of State Rex  Tillerson will on Monday, March 12, 2018 arrive Abuja as part of his ongoing tour of some African countries.

Tillerson will arrive at the Nnamdi  Azikiwe International Airport where he will be received by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Olukunle Bamgbose.

Tillerson’s visit, according to US Department of State, is to further US partnerships with the governments and people of Africa.

The US Embassy Public Affairs Section, Abuja, in a media advisory made available to Daily Sun, said “The Secretary will arrive on Monday… The Secretary will be greeted by the Permanent Secretary of the Nigerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs before departing.”

The US Embassy further said Tillerson will meet with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday morning at the Presidential Villa.

“Secretary Tillerson is expected to be joined in the press availability by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama,” the US added.

Recall that Ms. Heather Nauert, US Department of State spokesperson, had said that Tillerson will visit Nigeria and four other African countries from March 6 to 13.

Other cities on Tillerson’s tour of Africa include Addis Ababa, Djibouti, Nairobi and N’Djamena.

“On his first official trip to Africa, Secretary Rex Tillerson will travel to N’Djamena, Chad; Djibouti, Djibouti; Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Nairobi, Kenya and Abuja, Nigeria, March 6-13, 2018.

“In particular, he plans to discuss ways we can work with our partners to counter terrorism, advance peace and security, promote good governance, and spur mutually beneficial trade and investment,” Nauert said.

Tillerson had last week met with the leadership of the African Union Commission in Addis Ababa where he raised concerns over Chinese loans to African countries.

He particularly asked Nigeria and other African countries not to lose their sovereignty to China through acceptance of Chinese loans.

    The fraudulent political name Nigeria is dead- it is Yugoslavia of Africa, so do all its institutions are dead. The dead fraudulent political name Nigeria do not represent this territory natives. This territory natives are only represented by the natives Disintegrated Republics- Biafra Republic of south east, Niger Delta Republic of south south, Oduduwa Republic of south west, North East Republic, North West Republic, North Central Republic, with economic cooperation and assistance etc. which must be defended with the Sword in the ongoing Revolution War of the natives which secures the natives existence and future in 21st century world- education, employment, job, salary, pension, social securities, business, public infrastructures, amenities etc. which must be defended with the Sword in the ongoing Revolution War of the natives. Nothing on earth will keep the fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates in this natives territory. Nothing on earth will keep the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria in this natives territory. There is no democracy under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria. This territory natives voters card are worthless under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria. This territory natives votes do not count under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria. Sokoto controls Abuja via fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates which its capital sits in Sokoto and controls Abuja, by so doing controls this natives territory politically which has come to an end in the ongoing Revolution War of the natives under the natives Disintegrated Republics. It is God given Liberation, it is God given Freedom. God Is With Us!!!
