The All Progressives Congress (APC) has mourned the death of Mallam Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff and one of the closest advisers to President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC said “Even in death, the fond memories and indelible strides Mallam Abba Kyari left on earth will be celebrated for a long time. We remember a cerebral Nigerian who excelled in his private dealings, professional endevours and public service.
“The president has indeed lost a competent, trusted, loyal, strong right hand man and longtime adviser who promoted, protected and defended his interest in good times and adversity.
“The Party condoles with Mallam Abba Kyari’s immediate family, the President, leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the people and government of Borno state over the painful loss.
“As Mallam Abba Kyari is buried according to Islamic rites, may Almighty Allah be merciful and grant him Aljanat Firdaus.”
