The United States has still "not heard anything directly back" from Pyongyang over plans for a US-North Korean summit, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Monday as he urged patience.

The visiting Secretary of State commended President Buhari on his strides in the anti-corruption war, to which the Nigerian leader responded that moneys recovered are being invested on development of infrastructure.

Tillerson had initially been scheduled to stay in Abuja overnight, hold further meetings on Tuesday with United States embassy staff and then fly back to Washington.

Tillerson added a meeting Sunday with Kenyan Foreign Minister Monica Juma, as he was only able to speak with her during a brief pull-aside on Friday.

He said there was the need to increase the volume of trade between the USA and Nigeria.

He said the United States government has offered to assist Nigeria in ensuring speedy rescue of the girls by providing materials, intelligence and training, among others.

Tillerson said he was concerned about the presence of Islamic State-allied militants in West Africa.

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.

On Saturday while visiting Nairobi, Tillerson, 65, cancelled his scheduled events because he had been feeling unwell. The stations had planned to live-stream the oath.

Chad was an "important partner" in fighting terrorism, Tillerson told a news conference. He is on a five-nation trip to Africa that began earlier this week.

The secretary departed the Kenyan capital of Nairobi on Monday morning.

Tillerson's trip to Nigeria is the last stop in his tour of Sub-Saharan African after visits to Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia, and Kenya.
