Yakowa’s widow pays tribute!
Amina Yakowa, wife of the late Governor of Kaduna state, Patrick Yakowa, has said that her last moment with her husband was a "blessed one".
However, she said on Sunday at the Eucharistic Mass of St. Patrick's Chaplaincy, Government House Kaduna that her worst regret was not praying with him before he embarked on his last journey to Bayelsa State on Saturday.
She described with an emotion laden voice how the usual family routine for them was to offer private prayer every morning, before joining the daily celebration of mass at 6 a.m. at the chaplaincy.
She said that on Saturday, she was unable to say the usual prayers with her husband because she was down with catarrh, which made her very weak, the late Yakowa then woke her up, urged her to get well soon so that she can join him in the thanksgiving service of the wife of the President, Patience Jonathan, scheduled to hold on Sunday, December 16.
On December 23, they would have celebrated their 34th year of a marriage she described as a happy one.
The Archbishop of Kaduna, Matthew Ndagoso described the late governor as a dedicated man who used his position to promote peace, unity and development in the state.
He advised the family and people in the state not to despair, but rather be positive as the late governor had lived a good life worthy of emulation while tasking Yakowa's successor to continue with the projects initiated by his predecessor.
Former Kaduna State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Ramalan Yero, stepped into the shoes of his late principal yesterday with a promise to build on the good work of Yakowa.
