How we view Abba Kyari —Akeredolu, Boroffice


The Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN has described the late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, a man of many potentials whose exit will be sorely missed by many.

Governor Akeredolu, in a statement he personally signed, expressed shock even as he prayed God for the repose of the soul of the departed Public Servant.

The statement reads:”The frailty of life carries with it the deeper deception of an innocuous state, creating paths peculiar to individuals in life. Along such paths are attractions out of which we make our choices.

“For Mallam Abba Kyari, a quintessential Public Servant whose trajectory of life moulded him for inexorable service to his fatherland, his choice of life was that of a pool of unhyped potentials.

“For him, he had played his own part of the endless life orchestra; he has departed, in fulfilment of mankind’s inescapable debt, like other mortals.

“Truly, Abba Kyari’s urbane character may not have been seen by all; but to those who had reasons to know and work closely with him, he represented dynamism, strong character and compassion.

“He was a dependable and dispassionate liaison, full of life with an energetic work engine that never stopped pulsating. Kyari died working for Nigeria, no doubt. He will be sorely missed by many.

“I commiserate with the Nation, our Leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, the immediate family as well as friends and associates of the departed compatriot over this shocking development. May God grant us all the strength to bear this loss.”


The Deputy Majority Leader of the Senate, Prof. Ajayi Boroffice has commiserated with President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian government over the demise of Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari.

The senator in a condolence statement issued on Saturday, described the demise of Mallam Abba Kyari as colossal loss to the Presidency and the Nation.

It is a matter of public record that the deceased contracted Covid-19 while on National assignment to a foreign land to generate practical answers to the perennial questions the power sector has continually raised over the past years.

In other words, the deceased died in active
service. He served our fatherland with strength and faith. And he will be remembered for his absolute loyalty to Mr President and his tremendous services to the Nation.

On behalf of my family and the people of Ondo North Senatorial District, I extend heartfelt condolences to the family and associates of the deceased, the government and the people of Borno State.

I pray Almighty God will grant his soul Al Jannat Firdaus and grant his family the strength to navigate this mourning phase.

Press Secretary to DML,
