Presidential spokesman Femi Adesina quoted Buhari as saying this at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday when he received the U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson.

The top USA diplomat flew into the Chadian capital N'Djamena on the last day of a truncated tour of Africa with stop-offs in Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Nigeria - all frontline partners against Islamic State and al Qaeda off-shoots.

His meeting with the president was announced by Buhari's Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad on Twitter.

Tillerson's arrived at the State House, Abuja around 4.07 p.m local time for the meeting.

It wasn't enough to overcome a Trump administration travel ban that Chad's top diplomat declared an injustice.

Mr. Tillerson said the USA government does not seek to stop funds flowing into countries that need investments but to encourage countries borrowing to be cautious.

Tillerson said Nigeria was a very important country to the U.S.

Tillerson says Chad has taken important, positive steps to strengthen control over its passports and improve information-sharing.

"These steps I think are going to allow us to begin to normalize the travel relationship with Chad", he said.

"So, the United States is ready to engage and coordinate efforts as well".

Nonetheless, the trip hasn't been easy for Tillerson.

The State Department said Tillerson was forced to skip out on some events Saturday, after not feeling well.

The five-nation trip to Africa has coincided with two major foreign-policy events: President Donald Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, and the dramatic announcement on Thursday, March 8, that the president would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in May.
