Kyari: Contract mess story fake news, says Committee of Friends in defense

133

Committee of Friends to Chief of Staff to President, Mallam Abba Kyari, has warned fifth columnists, sponsored and hired hands to stop spreading falsehood and lies against the top presidential aide.

In a statement issued on Monday in Abuja and signed by Adekola Adeyemi and Gideon Osaro on behalf of the friends, the committee described a recent contract mess story against Kyari as “fake news”.

They further noted that the consistent attacks on Kyari, “were due to his fierce gate keeping and defence of President Muhammadu Buhari from hawks and corrupt elements, who want to hijack the Presidency for their selfish ends.”

The statement read: “Mallam Kyari has impeccable track records, and his conduct and actions are guided by the highest moral code and ethical compliance with all extant rules and laws. Kyari is a stickler for rule, for due process, for personal integrity of Mr President and for the ultimate national interest being pursued by the Buhari administration.This is a man that the hawks are desperate to smear and are failing every steps of the ways.

“All allegations of corruption leveled by faceless groups are without iota of truth. Mere reading of the e-border story confirms that no corruption is involved. A project already approved by the Federal Executive Council is necessarily for drastic implementation under presidential direction. How can mere conveyance of presidential directive be tantamount  to contract mess as gleefully published by purveyors of fake news.

“Instead of commending the Buhari administration for ongoing push for automated border monitoring, disgruntled elements are only worried about procedural rules which were complied with in all ramifications. We urge critics to allow the Chief of Staff to focus on his patriotic service to the President and the nation.”

The committee advised the Chief of Staff not to be deterred by detractors, urging him to continue to discharge his responsibilities as a patriotic citizen devoted to the building of a virile nation under the guidance of Mr President.
