The Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) has condoled with President Muhammadu Buhari over the death last Friday of his Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari.
The NSITF in a condolence message to the President signed by the Managing Director/Chief Executive, Adebayo Somefun, described Kyari as a consummate public servant who served the country with all his heart.
According to Somefun, “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”.
Somefun recalled that the late Kyari was instrumental to some of the achievements that the Buhari administration recorded with his doggedness and attention to details and excellence in government business.
“We at the NSITF feel the pain and the loss, particularly in respect to the 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,” he added.
