The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, has expressed her condolences to President Muhammadu Buhari and the family of Malam Abba Kyari, who died yesterday night.
The Minister said she was shocked and saddened by the death of the Chief of Staff to the President, with whom she worked closely even prior to her appointment as Minister of the Federal Republic.
“He was a strong pillar leading the staff who work closely with the President, and contributed in coordinating the activities of the various Ministries and agencies for the efficient administration of the country,” the Minister noted.
Sadiya Umar Farouq said the administration and the country will miss his expertise in administration and his massive inputs to policy formulation designed to enhance the wellbeing of Nigerians.
“May Malam Abba Kyari rest in peace and bless his immediate and larger family of Nigerians with the courage to bear his irreparable loss,” she said.
