NSITF mourns Abba Kyari, condoles Buhari


The Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) has bemoaned the passing of the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari. In a condolence message to the President, Managing Director/Chief Executive of the Fund, Adebayo Somefun, described Kyari as a consummate public servant that served the country with all his heart and a loyal friend of the President whose demise has created a huge vacuum that would be hard to fill.

Conveying the condolences of the entire Board, management and staff of the Fund to the President, the NSITF boss said Kyari was a man endowed with uncommon attributes of diligence, intelligence, hardwork, loyalty to all his endeavour and helper of the underprivileged, both within his immediate environment and beyond.

Somefun said: “We understand how particularly painful this loss is to you, especially knowing that he was above all, your very loyal, dedicated and trusted friend, who served you and the nation at a time he was most needed.”

He recalled that Kyari was instrumental to some of the achievements that the Buhari administration recorded with his doggedness and attention to details and excellence in government businesses, adding: “We at the NSITF feel the pain and the loss, particularly in respect of wealth of his experience, professionalism and sterling leadership, leading us to having laudable achievements and successfully accomplishing some of the policies of your administration.

“While we cannot question the Almighty over his passage, we can only submit to His Sovereign will. As the entire nation mourns with you, we earnestly pray that the Almighty Allah solidify your faith and grant you the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
