US President, Donald Trump has sacked Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, following months of speculation over the former ExxonMobil CEO's position. The President announced in a tweet that CIA Director Mike Pompeo  will take up the role, saying the 54-year-old "will do a fantastic job". Tillerson was in Abuja few days ago to meet Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari. He was yet to brief Trump on his visit to Africa. Trump also revealed he had appointed Gina Haspel as Mr Pompeo's successor, the first woman to take on the prestigious position. Reports say Mr Trump told reporters that although he and Mr Tillerson "got along", they had disagreements. "Rex and I have been talking about this for a long time," Mr Trump said. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/973540
