The Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) on Sunday in Abuja condoled with President Muhammadu Buhari over the death of his Chief of Staff, Malam Abba Kyari.
Alhaji Umaru Ibrahim, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the corporation, in a letter addressed to the President, described the late Kyari as a patriot whose rich experience and unique competence would be missed by the nation.
Ibrahim said the deceased was an erudite and committed public servant, who was widely respected for his unwavering loyalty and commitment to the goals and aspirations of the administration.
He further noted that late Kyari departed at a time that his deep knowledge and expertise were most needed by the administration in its quest to fully diversify and grow the country’s economy.
Ibrahim prayed for almighty Allah to grant the family and the President the strength and fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
Kyari died on April 17, weeks after testing positive to COVID-19.
