Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, has condoled with President, Muhammadu Buhari and the Kyari family on the passing of the Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari.
In a statement Saturday, Amaechi described Abba Kyari as a seasoned and remarkable administrator who took his job seriously and contributed immensely to the success of President Buhari as his Chief of Staff.
“Today, I join Nigerians, members of cabinet and staff of the presidency to mourn late Abba Kyari and pray for the repose of his soul. I also pray that his wife, Mrs. Kulu Abba Kyari, his family and loved ones find strength in this very trying time to bear this heavy loss,” he said.
Amaechi also urged Nigerians to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously and follow strictly all health safety protocols.
“As we have unfortunately experienced, the virus is no respecter of persons. Please adhere to the laid down health advisory, obey the restrictions and safety rules, so that together we can win this war, save more lives and come out stronger at the end of it all,” Amaechi said.
