Minister: Rex Tillerson’s sack won’t affect Nigeria-US relations

The Federal Government on Wednesday said the recent sack of Rex Tillerson as the United States Secretary of State would not affect the relationship between the US and Nigeria.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, said this in an interview with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Onyeama said Nigeria expected all the discussions held during Tillerson’s recent visit to Nigeria as regards both countries relations to stand.

The minister said, “Rex Tillerson’s sack won’t affect the discussions held because government is a continuum, as we all know.

“When he came, it was the United States that was speaking and clearly we expect 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.”
