Na-Allah Mohammed Zagga, a journalist from Jos, Plateau State, and member Atiku's Media Organization, has said the late Chief of Staff of president Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, is many things to different people. He however said irrespective of who he was while alive, it is inhumane to take pleasure in anyone's death because 'none of us can resist the cold hands of the Grim Reaper.'

Hr said, "It's now official. It's no longer a rumour that the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Alhaji Abba Kyari is dead. He is so far the most prominent Nigerian public figure to succumb to the lethal coronavirus disease. Death is inevitable. It knocks on everyone's doors impartially; it not a respecter of persons. Nobody can resist its timing. So it makes no sense to celebrate anybody's death because none of us can resist the cold hands of the Grim Reaper.

"The late Chief of Staff was many things to different people. To some, he was arrogant and a stumbling block. To others, he was simply doing his job. Admire him or loathe him, the former Chief of Staff was steadfastly loyal and did his job with aplomb, not minding what his critics thought of him, provided his boss was happy with him and approved how he handled his job.

"No doubt, he was one of the most powerful and controversial public figures in recent memory. He was incredibly courageous. It's not easy to maintain your sanity and remain focused on the job while running the gauntlet of hostile public perception. But the late Abba Kyari did just that.

"He was an effective Chief of Staff, a quality that even his worst enemies can't deny. He won the absolute trust of his boss which was more important than pleasing his critics. He was remarkably efficient, and even his critics would admit this fact, at least grudgingly. May his soul rest in peace!"

Late CoS Abba Kyari succumbed to coronavirus after weeks of battling with the deadly disease which has claimed over 150,000 lives worldwide since it was first reported back in November 2019.

Kyari has since been buried earlier today, Saturday 18th April, at Gudu Cemetery in Abuja.
