Who is Abba Kyari And Why Are Nigerians Happy That He Died From Coronavirus?

Unless you don’t live in Nigeria, that’s when you won’t know who Abba Kyari is. Until his death, he was the Chief of Staff of  the Federal Republic of Nigeria. That simply means  it is through him the President communicates to the Government and vice versa.

in 2019, due to the increased absence of  President Buhari as a result of illness and medical visits, he was in charge of running the country. President Buhari even directed that all queries and requests be sent through him in his absence. So, for a while, he was the informal “President” of Nigeria.

Nigerians have a lot to say, of course. There has been a lot of discussion about this and many Nigerians were delighted to hear that  Abba Kyari died from covid-19. Why? Well,  Since the Coronavirus shut down borders all over the world, our leaders haven’t been able to fly out for medical treatment. So, naturally, some Nigerians were delighted that he died.

The way some Nigerians cried when they heard Abba Kyari died

I mean it’s not every day that someone so close to power falls ill and can’t seek treatment outside the country. This means that they have to face the consequences of whatever healthcare facilities we have because they are in charge of budgeting and allocating resources for fixing it. 

May his soul rest in peace.



  1. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!|

  2. Can I simply say what a relief to find someone who actually recognizes what theyre speaking about on the net. You most definitely recognize how to bring a concern to light and make it important. More people need to read this and also recognize this side of the tale. I angle think youre not much more prominent because you certainly have the present.
