Why Trump sacks US Secretary of State, Tillerson after visit to Nigeria

President Donald Trump of the United State has fired US secretary of state, Rex Tillerson.

This is coming after President Buhari on Monday received the US Secretary of State in Aso Rock.

Buhari had after his meeting with Tillerson said the Federal Government preferred to negotiate with Boko Haram for the rescue of the abducted students

The US President, however, announced Rex Tillerson’s dismissal in a tweet five minutes ago.

Trump wrote : ”Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job!

”Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!

No reason was given for the sack but it may not be unconnected with the decision of Nigeria to negotiate with Boko Haram or some other diplomatic issues.
