The death of Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), weeks after the senior presidential aide’s infection with coronavirus, has undoubtedly created a void in the upper echelons of the current regime.

Based on their antecedents as some of Buhari’s closest associates, the following are the probable candidates for Kyari’s replacement. According to government officials, any of these associates could land the top job.

How about someone like Akinwumi Adesina? Must nepotism be number 1 in Nigeria?

Dr Akinwumi Adesina is a proven administrator. He would do better than all those people listed up there

Since we are listing profiles here, let me drop the profile of Akinwumi Adesina for those who do not know

* Akinwumi Adesina is the President of the African Development Bank

* He was Vice President of Policy and Partnerships for the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA)

* He attended a village school in Oyo and went ahead to graduate with a Bachelors in Agricultural Economics with First Class Honors from the University of Ife, Nigeria (1981) (Note: A first class from OAU is no joke)

* He was the first student to be awarded this first class in that department in OAU

* He has his masters from Purdue University in Indiana

* He has a PhD (Agricultural Economics) in 1988 from Purdue where he won the Outstanding PhD Thesis for his research work.

* He worked at the Rockefeller Foundation since winning a fellowship from the Foundation as a senior scientist

* His short time as Minister of Agriculture in Nigeria created the agricultural revolution we are enjoying today.

* He is the current President of the African Development Bank

I am tired of typing.

The hawks will all want someone who'll be pliable. Don't think Abba Kyari was all that bad. Maybe due to his loyalty to Buhari he made many enemies. As for Kingibe, I think he's too loud and ambitious for the role of COS. AB actually did it well.... Hameed Ali might just be the best choice.

It is the President's prerogative to appoint someone close and loyal to him as his COS.

He is at liberty to select any of his kids or wife for the position.

Buhari will give it to Adamu Adamu because he has been his speech writer for long and he knows Bubu very well, he understands his body language and he is a modest person. But again, all the men mentioned are currently employed except Kinjibe who has been on the reserves bench of the cabal in the villa. Then considering his age, he fits the age bracket of the typical cabal member. And he is very articulate too. But nothing will change for good regardless of who gets it. This is Nigeria.

Kashim Shettima will be picked ....the guy played an important role in Buhari becoming president. He planned the whole "missing chibok girls" saga when he was governor of Borno which in turn gave Jonathan a lot enemies and made him look incompetent in the face of Nigerians and the world. That kidnap destabilized Jonathan and gave Buhari an upper hand in winning that elections

Criteria for becoming the CoS to the president:

Who the president prefers - 90%

Credentials - 10%

For the credentials, I don't know much.

But if it is based on firmness, honesty, focus and standing up for the truth no matter whose ox is gored, Hamid Ali perfectly fits the socket.

If it is however on the basis of scholarship and experience, Adamu Adamu is the right peg. 

Though las las, na who the president want, na him go be his CoS. 

Migrating foreigners can cry blood, no one gives a flying fvck. cool
