It’s no longer news that President Mohammed Buhari’s Chief Of Staff Abba Kyari has tested positive to the corona virus, alongside 3 of his staff. The COS who had just arrived from Germany, had also gone to pay a condolence visit to the Governor of Kogi State, who recently lost his Mother. It was reported that, Abba Kyari was flown to Lagos from Abuja to start his treatment.
Barely 24 hours after this news went public, the first lady of Nigeria Aisha Buhari, have just fired the Permanent secretary to the Aso Rock Villa, Jalal Aribi, she instructed the Head Of Service to fire him. Jalal Aribi only answers to the Chief Of Staff, Abba Kyari, even though it may come as a shock to many, it may also not come as a surprise, as the first lady had accused him of fraud in the Villa, which had to do with the State house’s clinic, how less it equipped it was and how he does not pay salaries to the doctors, instead he will keep the money in his fixed deposit account.
Political Analyst and Human Rights Activist, Adetutu Balogun, was the person that broke the news on Twitter:
“Aisha instructed the Head of Service to fire the Permanent Secretary in the Aso Rock villa. The guy only reports to Kyari, as soon as he was fired, jubilation erupted in the villa. As at today she has mandated that every single person that works in the villa must undergo test tomorrow unfailingly”.
Indeed Power Is Transient!
