2019: Anti-corruption CSOs back Buhari, Kyari

A coalition of 122 anti-corruption Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) under the Global Centre for Conscious Living against Corruption (GCCLAC) has urged Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari and his Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari.

The Director General of the centre, Dr Nwambu Gabriel, told newsmen yesterday in Abuja condemned what he called “Sponsored demonstration against Abba Kyari, who were asking for his immediate sack or resignation.

“We, the coalition and indeed all well-meaning Nigerians wish to remind the few individuals involved in this ill- fated demonstration and their sponsors that the chief of staff to President Buhari, Abba Kyari is a coordinator of all the persons working for Mr President. 

“The chief of staff to the president is not a signatory to any government account and cannot make withdrawal of funds of any government account whatsoever. It is imperative therefore to remind the sponsors of this act that the office of Abba Kyari has no financial budget, therefore any power or authorities he enjoys as a chief of staff to Mr president is exercised as it deems fit by Mr president. So the allegations that he is involved in the withdrawals of large sums of money is baseless, it is unfounded and merely concocted to malign, Abba Kyari, subject him to ridicule and portray him in bad light before his boss, Nigerians and the international  community,” Gabriel said.
