The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s late Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari was a ‘cabal’ in this present administration.
According to Bello, the late Kyari stepped on toes while discharging his duties in the interest of President Buhari and Nigeria.
The Governor noted that Kyari sacrificed it all to ensure that Nigeria had the much modest achievement that it had today, adding that he took a lot of bullets and responsibility for that.
Kyari passed away on Friday in Lagos after battling with Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Asked if the late Kyari was a cabal in President Buhari’s presidency considering how influential he was in the cabinet, Bello said on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics: “Like you know and that of us in authority, loyalty is number one.
“Secondly, your ability and character to discharge the duties and responsibilities discharged on you is one other thing.
“Mallam Abba Kyari was very loyal to Mr. President, very diligent, a professional par excellence, and he is very passionate about the progress and development of Nigeria, not only to our party the APC but Nigeria in general.
“Such a person, if he’s carrying out his duties and responsibilities, surely there is no way you will not step on toes one way or the other to ensure that the job is done.
“So if he stepped on a toe in one way or the other, it is just to ensure that he serves Mr. President diligently, that he did so well.
“He took a lot of bullets and responsibility for that. So there is no regret and no apology to that effect.
“In due course, we are going to miss this great Nigerian who sacrificed it all to ensure that we have the much modest achievement that we have today, so if you say cabal, in one way or the other yes.
“You will have one or two persons that are loyal to you who’re ready to dare the devil and ensure that the job is done. So if you call it a cabal, it depends on the angle you are looking at it from.”
