The chief of staff to the president is the most powerful and important person in the government, after the president.
He contracted coronavirus and because he is like a magnet to all Nigerian VIPs, he came into contact with the president, the vice president, the SGF, all heads of service, ministers including health minister and many governors.
The president tested negative against the disease but is said to be feeling sick and under observation. The vice president has gone into self quarantine. Others are yet to come up for test. One man is virtually closing down government.
The trauma on those that came in contact with him will impede them from carrying out their jobs and worse is that Nigeria has no means of caring for them. And there are no overseas treatment options for them as all countries have closed their entry points.
Here are people that Abba Kyari came in contact with:
President Muhammadu Buhari
Secretary to the FG, Boss Mustapha
Vice President Yemi Osibanjo
Minister of Health, Enahire
Minister of Power, Saleh Mamman and aides (travelled alongside with Kyari to Germany)
Nigerian Ambassador to Gernany, Yusuf Tuggar
MD of NCDC, Chikwe Ihekweazu (met Kyari during the meeting of the Presidential taskforce on coronavirus)
All members of the Presidential task force on coronavirus including Ministers of Interior, Foreign Affairs, Humanitarian Affairs, Education, Information, State for Health.
Dr Sani Aliyu, National Coordinator for Coronavirus control
Governor Yahaya Bello (Kyari attended a burial in Kogi over the weekend)
Adams Oshiomole (met with Kyari to quash his APC travails)
All APC Governors
General Tukur Yusuf Buratai
IGP Mohammed Idris
All Service Chiefs
All Security details of top government personnel
All Aso Rock Staff.
These are people need to be tested and quarantined. God save us.
