”Malam Abba Kyari was more than my Chief of Staff. He was a friend of more than 40 years standing and it was a pleasure working with him in government in the last 5 years. He put in his best and he proved a worthy son of Borno and Nigeria. May Allah accept his Ibadaat, forgive his sins and admit him to Aljannah Firdaus, amin.”
