U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Nigeria for a two-day official visit.

He is expected to give a speech on interreligious tolerance, in the northwestern Sokoto State later Tuesday morning.
“He will meet with President [Muhammadu] Buhari to discuss counterterrorism efforts, the Nigerian economy, the fight against corruption, and human rights issues,” said a U.S. embassy statement.
“In Sokoto, he will deliver a speech on the importance of resilient communities and religious tolerance in countering violent extremism. In Abuja, the Secretary will meet with a group of adolescent girls working to change community perceptions that devalue the role of girls in society. He will also meet with northern governors and religious leaders,” the statement added.
Kerry’s visit is his third as Secretary of State and likely the last for top Obama administration officials.
