Jalal Ahmed Arabi the former Permanent Secretary of Nigeria’s State House, has made some revelations concerning late Abba Kyari.
He commented on the late Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari in a tribute titled, “Mallam Abba Kyari: A Rare Gem With Courage Of Personal Conviction”.
Also Recall that President Buhari already released a personal eulogy the day his friend of 42 years(Abba Kyari) was buried.
About a month ago, Arabi was moved to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, after a redeployment approval from President Muhammadu Buhari.
Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HCSF), announced that Tijjani Idris Umar would replace Arabi in the State House.
In the piece, Arabi shared some details of his meeting with Kyari, the late Chief of Staff’s influence and his activities at the Aso Villa in Abuja.
He said in the last five years, the day used to commence with paying compliments to each other and inquiring about each other’s family.
“We would then share the latest happenings in our dear nation. However, Ya’Abba’s main areas of interests in all the reportage were citizens’ comments on infrastructural developments and costs of living.”
Arabi said Kyari would inquire about reported or recorded security reports and breakthroughs in the agricultural sector.
“After that, it was coffee time since we had reduced taking breakfast tea. This latter period was sober as we would discuss how the Government was faring and the need to expand the frontiers of success. We will then carry the discussions to lunch where he will insist that every member of the “family” is notified that lunch was ready.”.
