Members of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), said the late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, would be remembered for his crucial roles in their struggle for local government autonomy; describing him as a friend of the grassroots.
In a condolence message to President Muhammadu Buhari, National President of NULGE, Com. Ibraheem Khaleel, described the late journalist as selfless, committed and someone who had sacrificed so much for the wellbeing of the nation.
According to NULGE, Kyari was a friend of the grassroots and a democrat who supported the union in the struggle for local government autonomy, adding that he was a legend worthy of emulation.
According to the union, “he was also a friend of the grassroots, and a democrat who believed so much in the existence of local governments as the third tier of government.”
The NULGE National President said: “We are deeply saddened by the news of the demise of the Chief of Staff, Alhaji Abba Kyari, who lost the fight against COVID-19 disease.
“We recognise his high level of commitment, selflessness and sacrifices to the nation. His loyalty to your administration, and the country is no doubt enviable.
“Sadly, his death would leave a vacuum too large to fill considering his closeness to you and his family and most importantly his service to the nation. Although saddening, we should take solace that he has gone to be with his maker.”
The NULGE President said: “His contributions and commitment to NULGE’s struggle on local government autonomy were legendary. With his boss, President Muhammadu Buhari, he openly canvassed and gave reasons why local government should be free.
“It is on record that he worked tirelessly to ensure that the presidency supported and approved local government autonomy, which was announced by President Buhari.”
