Presidency Reacts As Fani-Kayode Mourns Abba Kyari



Fani-Kayode Backs calls for Buhari to resign

The Presidency on Saturday hailed former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode over his reaction to the death of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

Naija News recalls that the Presidency in the early hours of Saturday announced the death of Mallam Abba Kyari.

A native of Borno State in the northeast. Kyari was a journalist and former banker, who held senior positions in some of the country’s banks.

Following his death, Fani-Kayode, a well-known critic of the Buhari administration, called the presidency to express sadness over Kyari’s death.

In a post on his Twitter page, Femi Adesina, Buhari media adviser, said Fani-Kayode put a phone call across to the presidency to express his condolences over the death of Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

He said Fani-Kayode’s action showed that he is human despite being anti-Buhari.

“Fani-Kayode phones in to condole with Presidency on passage of Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari. A great lesson for those who rejoice in evil.

“Fani-Kayode is morbidly anti-Buhari, but human enough to express his condolence.”
