Aisha Kyari, one of the children of the late chief of staff of the Nigerian president has urged critics to let her father, Malam Abba Kyari, rest in peace.
This Day newspaper reports that Aisha on her Instagram status update on Monday, April 27, told her father’s critics to allow those that love him grieve and mourn in peace.
Aisha Kyari also reportedly berated some people whom she alleged had been asking about her father’s whereabouts while was undergoing treatment.
“My daddy, Abba Kyari is gone. Evil ones still won’t shut up. You all claimed he was the root of your problems when he was alive, now he is gone, surely all your problems died with him. Allow us that love him grieve and mourn in peace," She was reported to have said.
However, efforts by Legit.ng to verify Aisha Kyari's post on Instagram was unsuccessful because her account was set on private mode.
Meanwhile, amid growing dialogue on who becomes Nigeria's next chief of staff, All Progressive Congress (APC) said it is not concerned about the new man to take over as Abba Kyari's successor.
The ruling party, in a statement by its spokesperson Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the appointment of the chief of staff is within the power of President Muhammadu Buhari, The Nation reports.
Legit.ng notes that since the death of Abba Kyari who passed away due to Covid-19 complications, many top Nigerians have been tipped to occupy his position with Babagana Kingibe, a very powerful politician, leading the race.
