BEVERLY HILLS, May 25, (THEWILL) – A wave of apprehension is sweeping through Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) as President Muhammadu Buhari begins a probe into the office of the late Chief of Staff Abba Kyari.
The investigation may lead to all appointments and approvals made by Kyari without Buhari’s permission being cancelled as there are indications that the President may have directed his new Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Agboola Gambari, to cancel all appointments and approvals made by Kyari without his permission.
Though no reason was given for the President’s alleged action, the Guardian reports that no less than 150 memos without the President’s authorization may have been uncovered.
This is as pundits said the volte face by the president in directing a reversal of over 100 decisions by Kyari could create more problems than it is trying to solve.
Sources revealed that the directive might just be a continuation of the bickering that produced a deep crack within the ranks of the president’s men last February.
Also, a source within the Presidential Villa suggested that the power block that produced the new Chief of Staff might be the force fighting back.
Kyari, according to those conversant with the inner workings of Aso Villa, had his hand in every pie, because he was “leveraging his sound education, brilliant intellect and experience in bureaucracy and business.”
He caved into the fangs of the ravaging coronavirus in a Lagos hospital after testing positive to the pandemic prevailing across the globe with the number of victims steadily rising in Nigeria.

The death of Kyari came at a time his role as the alter ego of President Buhari’s Presidency loomed so large that some observers called him de facto president and frontline field commander of the so-called cabal.
