HILLARY CLINTON TO VISIT NIGERIA IN AUGUST

United States Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, is billed to visit Nigeria early next month.Though the visit has not been officially announced by the US government, sources at the State Department said preparations were in top gear for the Secretary of State to be in Abuja early August on a one-day visit.
It was learnt that Nigerian Ambassador, Professor Adebowale Adefuye, who would begin his annual leave early August, has held several meetings with officials of the
US government on the planned visit.
Though we could not confirm the exact date of the planned visit at the time of going to press, it was learnt from sources at the State Department that
Clinton's itinerary includes meeting with top Nigerian officials in Abuja.
We also gathered that while in
Abuja, Hillary may also use the opportunity of her visit to announce some major gains of the Nigeria, US Binational Commission (BNC).
It was Clinton who signed the Bi-national Commission Agreement with the then Secretary to the Federal Government, Ahmed Yayale, at the State Department,
Washington DC in April of 2010.
