FG Speaks On The Sack Of Rex Tillerson After He Visited Nigeria

The Federal Government has said that the sack of the American Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson who was in Nigeria on Monday by President Donald Trump will not in any way have any negative effect on Nigeria’s relationship with the US as government is continuum.


The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama said this while briefing State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting presided over by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo at the Council Chamber.


Onyeama said: “Rex Tillerson sack won’t affect (Nigeria) because government is a continuum as we all know.


“When he came it was the United States that was speaking and clearly we expect that with every expectation that everything he has said as regards US/Nigeria relations reflects the position of the United States, reflects the position of the president of the United States, so we don’t see any change happening.”
