The South West APC has commiserated with the family of the late Mallam Abba Kyari and the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari over the sudden death of the Chief of Staff to the President.
In a Statement released by the South West Zonal Publicity Secretary, Rt. Hon. Karounwi Oladapo, the Party regretted the vacuum created by the demise of a very efficient and effective Chief of Staff to the President.
According to the Statement, the Chairman of the APC South West Zonal Caucus and National Vice Chairman, Pastor Bankole Oluwajana said that Mallam Abba Kyari left behind a very big shoe that will be very tasking to find a perfect match to wear.
In his words ” Abba Kyari brought dignity and candor into the office of the Chief of Staff. He took bullets for the Government with perfect equanimity, smiles and calmness.
He was loyalty personified. He served the President and the Nation in a manner no Chief of Staff has ever done. Infact, late Abba Kyari is arguably the longest Serving Chief of Staff to a President in the Civilian Administrations of Nigeria, spending 5 years in office.
He was a stabilizing factor in the Presidency and our Party, APC, has benefitted immensely from his wealth of experience and exemplary leadership at critical moments”
The prayers of the entire South West APC leaders and members go to the family he left behind and the President, President Buhari. We pray that God will comfort and strengthen them at this time. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
