Editor's note: Much has been said about the chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, and to many people, he represents different things.
In this opinion, security expert, James Bassey and Hon Ali Gambo, an Abuja based business man, urge Nigerians to disregard fake news about the chief of staff and called on those wishing him evil to desist from their actions.
Nigerians must learn to appreciate the contributions of individuals, especially political office holders who work hard at their duty post trying not only to bring their wealth of experience to bear on their duties but also go out of their way to ensure that things are done right at all times.
Having the above in mind, one can not but wonder why some people would wish evil on a man whose only alleged crime is doing a good job for the president of a big country such as Nigeria.
Is this not evil in the first place?
Is Kyari’s experience in public and private sector not enough to qualify him to stand tall on behalf of Nigeria at any international negotiation.
People should understand that President Buhari knows the worth of Abba Kyari and that is the reason why he would not hesitate to send him to stand in for him in any international negotiation on behalf of the country.
The orchestrated insults and fake news against Kyrai despite of the great jobs and selfless service he is doing for Mr President and the nation is unfair and should stop.
We must all understand that Kyari's trip to Germany (where he contracted coronavirus) was in the overall interest of all Nigerians. Instead of generating fake news, he should be encouraged and prayed for, especially when he became sick as a result of the visit.
It is our general belief that some powerful people may be afraid of the achievements of Kyari, hence they must do everything to rubbish him, however it is our prayers that he be in God's hands, and he is recovering and soon the enemies will be put to shame.
And to those wishing evil on the chief of staff, please stop this. He is human like all of us.
