2019…It’s EVERYMAN FOR HIMSELF
These are perilous times and the state of things and the dispositions of men are such that a man can never tell whom to trust or treat with fear. But Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to the President Muhammad Buhari faces no such dilemma. The strong man of Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, has found a true friend in Directorate of State Security (DSS) boss, Mamman Daura.
Daura among other things, manifests in Abba’s life as a rampart against life’s treacherous storms. But for Daura, Buhari’s chief of staff would be cooling his heels in a bare cell at the offices of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Few hours after EFCC boss, Magu, ordered the arrest of Abba Kyari, Daura like a true, devoted friend, sent his boys to guard the residence of Abba Kyari. At Daura’s orders, DSS operatives kept watch at Abba’s premises. Ultimately, they prevented the EFCC from arresting Kari some days ago.
While pundits speculate about goings-on in the in Aso Rock, a highly placed source in the presidency revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari knew about Kyari’s planned arrest but he feigned ignorance.
This is probably because of his readiness to sacrifice anyone who is found guilty of crimes; as the 2019 election is near or he simply turned blind eye in order to effect the rule of law.
