Prince Charles regretted that the death of Mallam Kyari had occurred through this “pernicious virus…I can only begin to imagine what an immense gap Mr. Kyari’s untimely death will leave in Your Excellency’s life and my heart goes to you and Mr. Kyari’s family.”

In a message through the Embassy of Rwanda in Abuja, President Paul Kagame, the government and people of Rwanda extended their heart-felt condolences and used the opportunity “to express solidarity to the government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as we are faced with the Covid-19 global crisis.”

The former Vice President, Architect Namadi Sambo in his own message to the President, described the death of Abba Kyari as a “monumental national loss.”

Industry leader and businessman, Abdulsamad Rabi’u in his letter to the President said he was deeply saddened by what he described as “this colossal loss.”

He said Abba Kyari “served the country and your administration with diligence and utmost loyalty. He was deeply committed to the service of Nigeria and his efforts especially in ensuring the success of Your Excellency’s Agriculture Industry agenda did not go unnoticed. He was a beacon of loyalty and a patriot.”

Other messages received by President Buhari included those from the Emir of Gazargamu, Ahmad Tijjani Ibn Saleh from Yobe State; the Secretariat of the Developing D-8 Organization for Economic Cooperation headquarters in Ankara, Turkey; retired Ambassador Jibrin Chinade; Alhaji (Dr) Adamu Abubakar Maje, the Emir of Hadejia, Jigawa State.
