National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, has expressed shock over the news of the demise of Malam Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Chairman/CEO of NAHCON,Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan,said late Abba Kyari’s contribution to national development is immeasurable, spanning his public service as commissioner in Borno state to the honourable office he held until his demise.
NAHCON Chairman said “The fourth board of NAHCON, led by my humble self, was greatly honoured to meet and worked with him, even though briefly.”
“This period calls for sober reflections on the reality of COVID19. The entire management of NAHCON, once again, joins federal government and well-meaning organisations in calling on the general public to unite with government in breaking the transmission chain of this global pandemic. As the President has stated, COVID19 is not a joke, it is a matter of life and death. Guidelines issued by government in curbing COVID19 diseases may cause hardship, but we must agree that these are sacrifices we must make in our own interest. Please stay home unless on essential duty, and observe other preventive measures as directed by federal government and other recognised health organizations.”
“Once again, on behalf of the entire staff and management of NAHCON, we condole President Muhammadu Buhari, the federal government and entire family of Mallam Abba Kyari over the irreparable loss.”
