Chief of staff to Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari has died from Covid-19 related complications. Kyari is said to have had underlying health issues which made his recovery impossible.
Kyari who has been widely referred to as Nigeria’s defacto President or Vice President Administration, contacted the virus while on an official assignment in Germany last month.
Abba Kyari who graduated from Cambridge and Warwick universities in the United Kingdom and worked with various institutions in Nigeria’s banking and oil sectors before becoming President Buhari’s Chief of staff in 2015, was seen as an intellectual and stabilizing factor in the Buhari administration.
While the Presidency is still mourning the loss of Kyari, it is not yet know whom his replacement will be, as many have already suggested former secretary to the government of the federation(SGF), Babagana Kingibe or whether the president will tinker with his kitchen cabinet.
