Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Abba Kyari

According to the report, Kyari is said not to be very conversant with his duties as the president's right hand man and it is affecting his relationship with the ministers.

In response to criticisms against him, Kyari has reportedly “hired” Ambassador Babagana Kingibe to help him run his of­fice.

Already, ministers from the North have complained to the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) on how the activities of Kyari is hindering the perfor­mance of the Buhari administra­tion.

The report revealed that the immediate past minister of environment, Mrs Amina Mohammed tongue-lashed the chief of staff for querying her for by-pass­ing his office to see the president.

Also the minister of transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi has also clashed with the chief of staff for bypassing him to see the presi­dent.

Amaechi reportedly asked him where he was when they were campaigning to get the pres­ident elected.

Kyari is said to be so lax in his duties to the extent that memos are not attended to on time even when they are urgent.

For memo, the memo from the sports ministry on welfare packages for late Stephen Keshi and Shuaibu Amodu is still with the chief of sand this is why the federal government is yet to announce the naming of the Abuja Stadi­um after Keshi.

Compared to previous Chiefs of Staff, Abba Kyari is seen as a none-starter in competence, ca­pacity and knowledge of Nigeria.

“While you will never find General Mohammed posing in any group picture with visiting dignitaries, posing with visiting dignitaries is the only part of the job ... Abba Kyari knows. He pre­fers the perks of the office,” a source said.
