Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari is dead.
The chief of staff of President Buhari Mallam Abba Kyari tested positive to coronavirus earlier and was undergoing treatment. He, however, could not survive the onslaught of the virus, unfortunately.
The demise of the chief of staff was made known by Femi Adesina Special Adviser to the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari at 12:44 am on Saturday, April 18, 2020, on a tweet.
His tweet reads; “Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, passes on. May God rest his soul. Amen. Funeral arrangements to be announced soon.”
It is very unfortunate to have lost such an important and fine brain of President Buhari’s government machinery. I believe that coronavirus will be put to death in the course of this year.
