From all we are now reading about Abba Kyari, I must say with utmost regret and disappointment that his friends but more importantly his handlers failed him. His media aides failed him. They all waited till death to tell Nigerians the good and humane qualities in that man.
I am shocked and touched that a Muslim like him will agree to be a best man to a Christian wedding. That spoke volumes. His intellect and background were not known. His loyalty to Buhari was well known and documented but it was told with a bad spin by detractors.
I hope leaders will learn to surround themselves with bold, honest and dedicated aides and friends who will be prepared to step up to the mic to speak for and about them. Geofrey Onyema’s knowledge of Abba Kyari could have been an anecdote that would have given a better picture of the man before all our erroneous adverse assumptions covered up an otherwise good man.
Geofrey Onyeama spoke late !
Shame on him !!
