Not a time to play politics or dig up conspiracies. You should respect the dead and take any issues you have to the living.
RIP to Abba Kyari.

I sincerely hope that Nigerians do not gloat over the death of Mallam Abba Kyari. May his soul rest in peace.
Death is the end that all of us must suffer.
One death won’t transform our health sector overnight.
We still have our work cut out for us.

When I chatted with him exactly on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, he assured me his health was fine and that he would faithfully take the treatments. But God always knows best. Sincere condolences to the Kyari family and the Government of Nigeria. Adieu Mallam Abba Kyari. https://t.co/EZ3BX2qibd
