“On behalf of Bama Progressive Forum (BPF) and the good people of Bama L.G.A of Borno State, it is with profound sadness that we condole with the family of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, the Governor of Borno State, Prof. Babagana Zulum, and President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Mallam Abba Kyari was a man of virtue, honour and a worthy ambassador of Bama and Borno State as a whole. He will be remembered for his hard work, philanthropy, principle and dedication to duty. Above all, he is a worthy role model to emulate by our generation and indeed the future generation.”
