PHOTONEWS: US Secretary Tillerson, President Buhari Meets in Abuja

Four days into official visit, Tillerson falls sick in Kenya, cancels engagements
The United States Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, is now in a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja after arriving the country on Monday, March 12, 2018.
Chad a year ago was stunned to find itself on one of six mainly-Muslim countries whose countries are affected by President Donald Trump's travel ban.
A Press Advisory from the US Embassy said Tillerson would hold talks with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, March 13.
During his meeting with Tillerson, Deby criticized the inclusion of Chad in the visa-ban list, Foreign Minister Mahamat Zene Cherif told reporters at the briefing. Tillerson says the visa restrictions were necessary because of "all the conflict that exists on Chad's borders". There were other technicalities, too, including Chad's inability to adequately share public safety and terrorism-related information with USA officials who screen foreigners seeking visas to enter the U.S. In December, a USA team traveled to Chad to work with local officials on outstanding problems.
"There will be a report prepared in the United States later this month".
"We believe that there are actions that need to be taken in Kenya and that they need to correct certain actions like shutting down independent TV stations and threatening the independence of the courts", Tillerson told a news conference in Nairobi.
However, Tillerson is to shorten his maiden tour of Africa because of work.
But he says the decision will have to await a final report the U.S. will prepare later in March.
"We managed to defeat Daech in Iraq and Syria, we knew they were going to flee that region and we knew his fighters would go to Africa".
He affirmed that Boko Haram remains a threat not just to Nigeria but the subregion.
In October, shortly after the USA slapped the visa restrictions in Chad, Tillerson's State Department announced a $60 million pledge to a newly formed "G5 Sahel" regional security force that aims to counter IS and other extremist groups.
During the meeting, the two also agreed to establish compact bi-annual consultations that would review the state of the two countries' relationship and support for Jubilee's Big Four agenda.
When responding a question on alternatives to Chinese loans, he said if the Nigerian government could create the right conditions around infrastructural investments, it could access loans from the U.S.
The United States is developing mechanisms in the form of 'Public Private Partnerships (PPP)' for infrastructure development as alternatives to Chinese loans for African nations, an American official said Monday.
