Just yesterday he was in high spirits, throwing banters with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari in the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja, the Nigerian capital.
But this afternoon he suddenly found himself out of job.
That is the story of United States Secretary of State, Plaid Rex Tillerson, who was on Tuesday afternoon sacked by President Donald Trump and promptly replaced.
He was fired via Twitter by Trump, who tweeted: “Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!”
