President Muhammadu Buhari has lost two of his most respected friends in the last three months.
Though, death remains inevitable. No one wish to lose his loved one or a working partner.
President Muhammadu Buhari received the death news of his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari on 17th April 2020 with great shock. Abba Kyari was an important and a key personality in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari before his death.
He died of COVID-19 at the First Cardiology Centre, Ikoyi thereby creating a huge vacuum in the presidency before President Muhammadu Buhari appointed Ibrahim Gambari in May to replace Abba Kyari in office.
Many Nigerians extolled the virtue of late Abba Kyari, how he had assisted them before he died.
Notably among who did this was Geoffrey Onyema, Foreign Affairs Minister. He took people through the memory lane, how Borno-born man was his best man on his wedding day and how he assisted him in many ways.
TheCable proprietor, Simon Kolawole also eulogized late Abba Kyari how he assisted the online news platform in making sure one of its staff regain freedom after his investigate report was leaked to the security agency.
