The US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, will visit Nigeria today, Thursday 18 November 2021 to meet President Muhammadu Buhari as part of his three-nation trips.

He will also meet Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in the afternoon.

Blinken is expected to sign aid agreements during the meeting with the vice president.

While in Kenya on Wednesday, Blinken restated calls for an unconditional ceasefire in the Ethiopian conflict and appealed to Sudan’s military leaders to free prisoners taken in the coup last month and to return to the path of democracy, saying some of the financial assistance frozen might be restored if civilian leadership returned.
