‘Abba Kyari Was a Friend of Anambra State’


Gov Obiano



The people and government of Anambra State has commiserated with President Buhari over the death of his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, C. Don Adinuba, said, “Malam Abba was a Nigerian nationalist and patriot. He exhibited enormous interest in Federal Government projects in Anambra State.

“He always inquired from Governor Willie Obiano the progress of work on such major projects as the Zik Mausoleum, the 2nd Niger Bridge and the reconstruction of failed roads in our state. He also displayed interest in the repayment of over N30billion used by the state government to rebuild failed federal roads in the state over the years.

“We commiserate with President Buhari, the Federal Government and the Abba Kyari family over the loss. We pray that the Almighty grant Malam Abba Kyari a place in paradise.

“One important lesson from this tragic development is that the coronavirus is real and deadly. Therefore, all Nigerians must continue to fight the pandemic together.”
