The national heirarchy of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has been charged to immediately seek a suitable candidate as Chief of Staff to President Muhamamdu Buhari following the unfortunate demise of Abba Kyari.
The call was made on Wednesday by Forum of All Progressives Congress (APC) State Chairmen which noted that a suitable replacement must be recommended in good time because the job of a Chief of Staff is to help the president move the economy and achieve his goals hence should not be taken lightly.
In a statement signed by the forum’s chairman, who is also the Borno State APC Chairman, Ali Bukar Dalori, the APC State Chairmen also noted that Chief of Staff role was vital to the attainment of the policies of the president hence should be appointed by the party’s hierarchy.
Dalori said; “We commiserate also with the government of Borno State, Borno APC and the bereaved family.
“It is pertinent that we state that those jostling to replace Abba Kyari should know that it is a job of a confidant, who will help the president to achieve his goals in governance.
“The forum calls on the leadership of APC to find a way to help in stabilising the president and possibly recommend somebody that would be an asset as a Chief of Staff,” he added.
