The Delta State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has mourned with President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerians over the death of Malam Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to the President.
This is contained in a comforting message sent by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Sylvester Imonina on Saturday in Asaba.
The party lamented over the incredible exit of Kyari as a result of the ravaging coronavirus, describing his death announcement as a shock to the party and indeed the entire people of Delta.
The party also mourns with families of other Nigerians whose lives were caught short by the cold hands of the Coronavirus.
” before his death, Abba Kyari was the engine room of the Presidency, in view of the position he occupied, deploying his wealth of experience to manage the admiration of most Nigerians” Imonina Said.
“Kyari shall indeed be missed by Mr. President, APC family, and Nigerians in general,” he said.
He said the party joined hands with others to pray to God to receive their souls, with the hope that those who are still on the mother Earth will do their best possible in halting the menace of the dreaded disease.
According to him, the party commends the skillfulness of the health workers, while calling for a review of their allowances to encourage them to fight on to ensure that they save Nigerians from the disease.
“We commend the health workers that have made the sacrifice so much to contain the pandemic.
“Despite the novelty of the COVID-19 and the limited resources, our health workers have been battling the scourge and other diseases, like Lassa fever, with uncommon mental dexterity and professionalism.
“They remain our heroes. We shall continue to offer prayers for their safety and well-being, and we urge them not to rest on their oars.
“APC Delta calls for a holistic review of the welfare packages of health workers in line with international best practices.
“In fact, there is a need for total support and collective actions for health workers and the health sector. Their love and labour for our dear nation must not go unrewarded,” he said.
He, however, urged all Nigerians and Delta citizens to abide by all laid down rules and regulations by the government at all levels to contain the spread of the disease.
“At this perilous time, we urge Deltans and Nigerians to abide by the safety tips and measures put in place by the government at various levels.
“We believe that in no distant time, this common enemy (COVID-19) of mankind, shall be subdued,” Imonina said.
