Abba Kyari Tried To Clean Up Nigeria, Says The Economist Of London by dre11(m): 12:31pm On Apr 24, 2020
The Economist of London says Abba Kyari, the late chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, tried to clean up Nigeria before his demise.

Exactly one week ago, Kyari died from COVID-19 complications. He had tested positive for the disease after a trip to Germany where he attended a meeting with officials of Siemens to discuss issues relating to the Nigerian power sector.

In a piece published on Thursday, Kyari was described as “a largely honourable man” who wanted the best for his country.

The Economist said Kyari was often bothered about the degree of corruption in the country and thought of ways to end it.

An instance was cited on how the boss of an energy company “forgot” a bag stuffed with $100 bills at his office but Kyari was quoted to have said: “much too much of our work is spent on stopping our own people stealing”.

“While Mr Kyari was alive, others were much less kind. Many saw him as the figurehead for a shadowy cabal that controlled policy and appointments, and granted favours and contracts,” the piece read.

“Cabinet ministers grumbled that they could not get past his door to discuss important issues with a distant and apathetic president. Mr Kyari’s economic thinking, which seemed stuck in the 1970s, was also criticised.

“There was some truth to these accusations. Yet there is also a broader parable of Mr Kyari. It is one of a largely honourable man who went to the heart of a thoroughly corrupt and dysfunctional system, aiming to reform it—but who struggled to overcome its inertia amid a series of crises.

“He was known to turn down offers of free upgrades to first class (he thought it vulgar) before taking his seat in business class on British Airways flights.

“The corruption and decay of Nigeria’s state, and the inequality they bred, dismayed and worried him. Nigeria had to change, he argued. The question was whether it would be through orderly reform or chaotic breakdown.”

The publication said it is unfortunate that Kyari served in a government which took power after crash in oil prices pushed the country into recession.

It said the late chief of staff had hoped that Buhari’s second term “would provide an opportunity to liberalise the corrupt oil and gas industries by making contracts and licences more transparent and taking them out from under the thumb of politicians.”

The Economist of London are so correct....


Yes, Abba Kyari tried to clean up Nigeria financially with the mismanagement of public funds.


He went to Germany to discuss issues relating to the Nigeria Power sector, when we have a healthy Minister? Tell me, is that not an avenue to "Clean up Nigeria" financially?

Anyone planning to "Clean up Nigeria" like Abba Kyari will join him soon.


He was a "good man" my left yansh.

Stupid economist !!!! Does this even make sense , who elected him to clean up Nigeria ? Can you allow a personal aide of Boris Johnson Usurp the power of prime minister in the UK? The only thing Abba Kyari was cleaning Nigeria of is the rule of law ..This is clearly an indictment that Buhari is completely incompetent , visionless and not in control of a govt he was elected to head !!!!!

Once a man dies, you will start seeing the hypocrites coming out to say lots of good things about him they couldn't say while he was alive.

Abba they all told us was evil during his lifetime has suddenly become the Saint everyone can't stop talking about.

Human beings are very hypocritical in nature.

I would have believed all these post-death hypings if the state of Nigeria improved under Buhari.

It only got worse and terrible.

So the hype is a proof that they made Nigeria worse than they met it.

The hype is therefore declared useless

Is this a sponsored oped?

Those in favor say aye and those against say nay...

I won't be surprised if indeed this man was given a bad name by those who live off corruption thriving in Nigeria. These people are so mean and powerful that they have all the resources in the world to sponsor propaganda against a pope to make people see him and run in the opposite direction.

These enemies of States can go to any length to maintain the status quo and keep the evil enterprises going strong.

At the end of the day, only God knows.
