Chief of Staff to Nigerian president, Mallam Abba Kyari has died. He died last night from the deadly pandemic, coronavirus.
Buhari’s personal assistant on new media, Bashir Ahmad, who shared the news online wrote:
Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, has died. May Allah forgive his shortcomings and grant him the highest rank of Jannah. Allah ya jikan sa
Completely out of any word, so devastating. It is indeed very hard on us, but I strongly believe that we all belong to Allah and to Him we shall return. May Allah accept Mallam Abba Kyari’s shahada, forgive all his shortcomings, and grant him Jannatul Firdausi.
He added on Twitter:
If you just woke up, our boss, Mallam Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to the President, has passed away, he died last night from the deadly pandemic, #COVID19. Please pray for him.
It was Mallam Abba Kyari’s turn last night, my time and your time will definitely come no matter how long it may take. And none of us will be here and healthy in the next 150 years.
Abba Kyari certainly was one of the most misunderstood people in the history of Nigeria. Those who had the opportunity to know him personally will tell you how extremely a good person he was. A man of honor, will be remembered as someone who sacrificed his life for this country.
