The People’s Democratic Party Caucus in the Senate on Saturday mourn the passing on of the Chief of Staff to President Mohammadu Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari, saying it was shocked with the news of his death.
In a statement released in Abuja, by the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, the caucus expressed its condolences to the President, the presidency, the federal government and the family of the deceased.
Senator Abaribe said the death of Mallam Kyari who’s pragmatism was shown when he announced to a bewildered nation, that he tested positive to the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic, has robbed Nigeria of his rich experience in governance.
The caucus he added is saddened with the fact that late Chief of staff will die at a time the President and the government needed his services and wise counsel the more, particularly now that the country is grappling with the negatives of the global pandemic.
“We in the Senate Minority caucus condole with President Buhari, the Federal Government and the family of Mallam Kyari and pray that the Lord receive his soul and Grant him eternal rest”, Abaribe said.
