Abba Kyari: Nigeria just lost a patriot – Senator Abiola Ajimobi
The immediate past governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has described the death of Chief of Staff to President Bihari, Abba Kyari as a great loss.
Senator said his in a statement while reacting to the news of Kyari’s death.
It’s with a great sense of personal loss and grief that I mourn the unexpected passage of Malam Abba Kyari, the patriotic, hardworking, loyalist and Chief of Staff to our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari.
By his death, our President and our nation have lost a friend, a patriot and partner in the journey towards building a nation of our dream.
His death is a great loss to our country at this time when his wise and sage counsel, calm disposition are critically needed.
His death is especially painful having paid the ultimate price in the service of the fatherland as he is said to have contracted the dreaded Covid-19 virus while representing the country on an official assignment.
Though we knew he was sick as a result of the disease, all the same we thought he would overcome the ailment, thus, his death came suddenly and unexpected.
I share in the grief of our President, our nation, his family and close associates who would continue to miss the void he left behind.
I know that no words can adequately capture the grief and the pains of the loss, I however pray that the Almighty Allah console us all, in this trying period.
As we all mourn the passing away of this great Nigerian. Let me leave you with the words of Late Nelson Mandela.
“ Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace”.
Malam Abba Kyari has done his duty to his people and his country. May his soul rest in peace and May the Almighty Allah grant him Al-janah firdaus.
