He said: “Congrats to my friend and brother Abba Kyari who has been appointed as Chief of Staff to President Buhari. Abba and I were at Cambridge University together in the mid-80’s. On his return to Nigeria he worked in my fathers law firm ”Fani-Kayode and Sowemimo” for many years, running the Kaduna office.

I can assure you that he is one of the brightest minds in this country. He is a profoundly good man and I wish him well in his new assignment.”
