There have been a lot of rumor surrounding the health status of the President Chief of staff, the resent was the supposed sacked and replacement of the sick elder statesman, who have been diagnosed positive of the dreaded coronavirus pandemic, with a supposed letter from the SGF.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, has come out to refute this claim, the SGF called the letter fake.
According to him, the statement is a “Fake news” as the Office of the SGF does not sign releases like the one in circulation. “Is this how we send our releases? Have you ever sighted a release ever written by the SGF? I am not aware of the claim,” Bassey said. The release being circulated stated that: “The termination of the appointment of Mr. Abba Kyari took immediate effect. And the President has appointed Alhaji Babagana Kingibe as the new Chief of Staff (C0S). “The President thanked Mr Abba Kyari for his absolute loyalty to him and to the nation during the period he served as his CoS. He prayed to God for his speedy recovery.”
