Chairman,House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs and Member representing Gombi/ Hong Federal Constituency of Adamawa State,Rt. Hon. Yusuf Buba Yakub,has joined other Nigerians and friends of Nigeria to condole with President Muhammadu Buhari,GCFR, the entire First Family and, indeed, the immediate family of the deceased ,on the passing of the Chief of Staff to the President,Malam Abba Kyari.
While describing the deceased as a hard working gentleman and a long-standing, trusted ally of President Muhammadu Buhari,Rt. Hon. Buba said he would be greatly missed by the President,the Northeast Zone and many Nigerians for whom the Late Abba Kyari was a profound benefactor, colleague and friend for many years.
In a Press Release personally signed by the Adamawa- born lawmaker,which was made available to his media handlers today in Abuja,Rt. Hon. Buba recalls the stabilising role Malam Kyari played in the Administration of President Muhammadu Buhari for almost five years and urged the President to accept the sad demise of the late lawyer and technocrat as an act of God.
He also added:
” As a human being,there is no gainsaying the fact that you shall miss him greatly. As is well- known,he was for you both a trusted lieutenant and a dependable political ally and friend. There is no doubt that, with him you have shared several moments of life, including the good ones and the bad ones.
“All of those moments must have in many ways justified the trust you reposed in him and the bond you both shared. These are both hallmarks of life that etch the memories of people on the hearts of others and bring pains at separation.”
Rt. Hon. Buba , therefore,prays God to grant the President and Malam Kyari’ s immediate family the fortitude to bear the late Chief of Staff’s passing. He also prays for the forgiveness of the sins of the deceased and that Almighty Allah grant him aljana firdausi.
