ABBA Kyari is dead, the man many Nigerians hated, yes, he was hated by two (2) groups, the first are the political gladiators who envied him and wants to wield same influence like him, not for anything, but for their self-serving interests!
The second group are common Nigerians (who I don’t blame), who genuinely hate him because of the stories the first group has successfully sold to them, they also hate him because of the failures of President Muhammadu Buhari, as they believe he’s the one wielding the powers of Mr. President!
I just see Abba Kyari as a man caught in the storm of a failed system, a victim who was at the receiving end of elitist political conspiracies, the sad part was that he wasn’t able to tell his own story, yes, his office didn’t permit him, I hope one of his offspring of aides will do so soon!
Take it or leave it, Abba Kyari was loyal to his friend and boss till death, he took all the stones and bullets for PMB, he protected the President from many foxes and hyenas, yes, he has so many faults and committed so many mistakes, he wasn’t perfect, no one is anyway!
This isn’t a time for anyone to gloat about his death, this is the time for us all to retrospect and see if we also have an Abba Kyari as a friend – someone who would be loyal to us till death, most importantly, I hope those who still think Covid-19 is a scam are now woke, if ABBA Kyari with the best medical treatment becomes a victim, who else can’t?
May Allah forgive him of his sins and receive him as a Shahidi (Amin thuma Amin). Rest in peace Mallam!
