Officially, Abba Kyari is supposed to be the Chief of Staff to the Nigerian President, he was first appointed to this position precisely on the 27th of August 2015, and towards the end of 2017, with the demise of President Muhammadu Buhari, he craftily enthroned himself, the overall leader of the country, and since then he and other members of the All Progressives Congress(APC) have been running the affairs of Nigeria having Jubril Al-Sudani, a Sudanese impostor being paraded as President Muhammadu Buhari.
This deceit by the APC Cabal led by Kyari went on for quite sometime in Nigeria without any suspicion, this was as a result of the extensive cosmetic surgeries carried out on Jubril Al-Sudani in London, who originally is in his mid-forties to appear exactly like the late President Muhammadu Buhari.
The looks of Jubril were perfectly altered under the knife several times to look like the late Buhari but the mannerisms were actually what indicated the first set of suspicions among Nigerians.
Subtly, Kyari cleverly covered his tracks to prevent any suspicion as regards the administration in the purported Muhammadu Buhari’s led government, he hardly made obvious changes, even when Rotimi Amaechi’s tape, where he was telling a presumed confidante about the insensitive and lackadaisical attitude of ‘President Buhari’ on national issues leaked, Kyari refused to get rid of him as minister of transport.
Amaechi was shocked beyond marrow that the president could have such a nonchalant disposition towards concerns bothering on the country. He apparently felt disappointed that while he tried to acquaint the president with issues the citizenry were faced with in the country, he was not in anyway perturbed, and interested to listen to him(Amaechi).
But to be frank, one would not apportion blames to the ‘president’ because he is only a contracted employee taking instructions from his boss, Kyari. He was not paid well over 500 million dollars to listen to complaints from a frustrated minister who had no idea of who he was in reality.
Abba Kyari, the trained lawyer cleverly mapped out his scheme, and modus of operandi. Brilliantly and patiently, he unveiled it beginning from the tail end of ‘President Muhammadu Buhari’s first term to the present state he had brought the country to, where he selected the ministers, and mandated them to pay at least 2.5 billion naira if they truly desired to become or remain ministers, with the exception of four that the APC Cabal unanimously chose which had former governor of Lagos state on top of the list, the rest of the ministers coughed out the billions, Kyari demanded.
When eventually, the ministers were approved by the senate, he barred them from seeing the ‘president.’ The so-called President Muhammadu Buhari had demanded that he would not no longer deal directly with the ministers, henceforth, they were to report to Kyari, whom would then relay their messages to him. Kyari reporting to himself!
The camouflage is in deed legendary, which has bestowed an enormous power and authority on Kyari without anybody in the top echelon of the government questioning him or showing obvious resentment to his ploy. The ministers in clear terms with the new directive from the ‘president,’ got the message as regards who the real president of the country is thus far, and because all of them have massively looted from the government, and those who have not served yet paid a bribe to clinch their positions, they lost the moral justification, and temerity to confront Kyari on the Jubril issue.
Nonetheless, Kyari is a clever man, and has been in government for nearly thirty years, he was a successful lawyer before taking up government appointments thus money was not a problem for him when he asked the ministers to bribe their way through. He knew they desperately wanted to remain in government, he needed their loyalty, and in his shrewdness, he threw the bait of 2.5 billion naira fee to be appointed or re-appointed minister, and like dogs who can not resist the temptation of grabbing bones thrown at them, they fell to his game plan irresistibly.
Now, Kyari calls the shots in the government as an unofficial president while his stooge, Jubril is happily taking his instructions and executing them. Painful, as this may be, Kyari’s position doesn’t seem to stop any time soon, considering the fact that he reappointed himself as Chief of Staff, and at the end of the four-year term which recently began, he will bring forth another stooge to impose on Nigerians through another of his stooge, Indepedent National Electoral Commission(INEC) in the name of Elections, just exactly the way, the organisation was instructed to rig Jubril back into power.
For Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, he knows he is not different from Kyari’s stooge. Osinbajo takes order from Kyari, and will never dare question his decisions on issues. Kyari fully belong to the Northen Caliphate which presently controls the Nigerian polity including Osinbajo’s position.
For doubting Thomases, the recent events in, and about Nigeria beginning from the way, the ministers were barred from seeing the ‘president,’ to IPOB moving strongly to unmask Jubril in Japan, and how the ‘president’ has been thoroughly guided to avoid anything that would expose his true identity in Tokyo for the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development are crystal clear enough to clear any confusion about the power Kyari wields.
From a critical perspective, Kyari’s strategy for imposing Jubril on Nigerians is to ensure that power remains perpetually in the North, it will be agonising for Bola Tinubu who endorsed the late Buhari in 2015, and in 2019 still supported Jubril to become president even when he was aware of the impostor, did so for his selfish political ambition of becoming president in 2023 with the hope that the North would throw their support behind him, will have his hope completely dashed because of Kyari’s well thought out plan of forever letting power remain in the North as long as Nigeria tarries.
