Abba Kyari: Reflection On His Life

April 18, 2020

Malam Abba Kyari, who is from the Kanuri tribe, was born in northeastern Borno state.

He attended primary and secondary school in Borno State, but did his first degree at the University of Warwick in England, in Sociology in 1980.

He has also completed another degree in Law at Cambridge University.

In 1983, he became a lawyer after attending the Nigerian Law School.

In 1984, he completed his law degree from the University of Cambridge.

He later attended Lausanne College of Management in Switzerland in 1992 and participated in a course on Management and Community Development at Harvard Business School in 1994.

The late Abba Kyari has worked in several fields, including the Editor of New Africa Holdings Limited Kaduna from 1988 to 1990.

In 1990, he became Commissioner for Forestry and Animal Resources of Borno State.

From 1990 to 1995, Kyari held the position of secretary of the board of directors of African International Bank Limited, a branch of the lending and commercial bank.

Kyari previously served as managing director of the United Bank for Africa, where he later served as president of the bank.

In 2002, he was appointed director of Unilever Nigeria and previously worked at Exxon Mobil Nigeria.

As the chief of staff in the Presidency, Mr. Abba Kyara has been involved in almost everything that has to do with the president.

He is the person who sets the agenda for the presidency and meets with at least 20 people a day, according to some officials in the Presidency.

A reporter with the president, who declined to be named, told the BBC that Abba Kyari had been meeting with Buhari on at least four occasions.

He is also meeting with governors, ministers and other senior government officials who want to meet with the president.

Politically, in 2015, President Muhammadu Buhari appointed him as the chief of staff of the Presidential Palace.

The position gave him full authority over the matter, which he placed before the public, where he is alleged to have turned down the government’s bribery and allegations of corruption.

For example, in September 2018, the Presidential Palace fired Mr. Abba Kyari on corruption charges.

The newspaper quoted Punch newspaper as saying that Mr Abba Kyari had received N29m bribe to give a man a contract to buy cars for the presidency.

President Buhari has repeatedly stated that no one distorts his government’s credentials.

He had one wife and four children.
