Multimillionaire businessman, Alhaji Ismaila Isa Funtua has slammed those who allegedly, shortlisted him among those likely to succeed late Abba Kyari, insisting that the action was belittling.

He said in an interview on BBC Hausa service monitored by journalists on Tuesday that even President Buhari would not dare ask him to be Chief of Staff.

According to him, “it’s ridiculing for some people to mention my name as a possible replacement for Abba Kyari.”

“The story is belittling. Now I employ people, not someone to employ me.”

“I had worked with government in the 80s, worked with NA, Native Authority. I was a minister of the Federal republic in 1983”.
