The Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN) has described death of the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, as a huge loss to the administration of the President, Muhammadu Buhari and the country in general.
The student body explained that Kyari’s death owing to the deadly coronavirus remains a testament to the Almighty’s promise that every soul shall taste death and to Him is every creature’s return.
The Amir (President) of MSSN Lagos State Area Unit, Dr. Saheed Ashafa, while commiserating with President Buhari over the death of his Chief of Staff, said the society had received news of Abba Kyari’s death with great sorrow and deep regret.
Ashafa, in a statement released to newsmen on Saturday, enjoined Nigerian leaders and politicians to remember that life is transient, and that it requires God’s consciousness and humane attitude towards all people.
He urged Nigerians to be helpful to each other, especially during the economic hardships and negative life changes being recorded as a result of the deadly coronavirus pandemic in the country.
“We seize this medium to call on all well to do individuals to stretch hands of charity to the have-nots in this trying moment being experienced across the globe. With time, we shall come out victorious of the ravaging pandemic while exercising patience and perseverance,” the statement said.
Ashafa offered prayers to God for the soul of the deceased and urged Nigerians to abide by government directives for containment of coronavirus in the nation.
