Archbishop Of Canterbury, Chief Horsfall, Others Condole With Buhari Over Abba Kyari

 

 

The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, has expressed sadness over the passage of the Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari.

In a letter of condolence dated April 21, 2020 to President Muhammadu Buhari, the revered world religious leader said he recognised that “the Chief of Staff is a role on which one depends more than almost any other,” stressing that occupants of that strategic position “need to be trusted…and willing to have your interests most closely at heart.”

According to the Archbishop, who is a personal friend of the President, “The fact that you entrusted Abba Kyari with your messages to me and to others demonstrates the faith you have in him,” adding, “I am sure that his death is a significant blow to you personally, as well as to your government.”

“This letter therefore brings my condolence at the loss of a man who struck me as remarkably intelligent and thoughtful…” he noted, while also extending his commiserations to Mallam Kyari’s family.

The pioneer Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Chief (Ambassador) Albert Korubo Horsfall, also sympathized with President Buhari on the loss of his Chief of Staff.

The Oil and Gas Trainers’ Association of Nigeria (OGTAN) in a condolence letter signed by its President, Dr Mayowa Afe to President Buhari, described Mallam Kyari as “a trusted friend, dependable ally and a man of uncommon loyalty…” while also acknowledging his contributions to strengthening the “economy and the Oil and Gas Industry.”
