From Citizen Reporter, Kaduna

Following the demise of late Sir Patrick Yakowa former governor of Kaduna state, who died on the 15th December helicopter crash at Bayelsa state.
The controversy surrounding the Death of the governor rages, as the widow Mrs. Amina Yakowa in her remarks at the funeral ceremony of her late husband stated that her husband in his simplicity attended the burial ceremony of Oronto Douglas late father at Bayelsa state.
Oronto Douglas a special Adviser to the president on research and Documentation is also a friend of the late sir Patrick Yakowa former governor of Kaduna state.
The status of a Nigerian Governor today does not permit late sir Patrick Yakowa to associate with a mere adviser to the president let alone attending a private burial where he met his death.
Angered by the way and manner late Yakowa lost his life carelessly, during the funeral ceremony Dr. olusegun mimiko was the first governor who walked out of the funeral serviceat fadan kagoma.full of tears,shock and disbelief.when asked on comments he expressed sadness on how a Nigerian governor lost his life in a tragic and demeaning way.
The governor viewed it perhaps late Yakowa has been used by bloodletting cultic politicians.
In his remarks chairman of the Nigerian governors forum Governor Rotimi Amaechi shortly told the family of late sir. Patrick Yakowa that after the burial of their son, father and husband, the fanfare, attraction that greeted the burial of late Yakowa will fizzle out as most of his colleagues the governors will no longer relate with the family of their late colleague.
He promised to use his good offices position and authority to do good to late Yakowa’s family.
When it was announced that the governors should all move into the residence of late Sir Patrick Yakowa for internment.it was only the host governor Dr. Ramalan Yero late Yakowa’s successor that came into his residence.
The knight fraternity, the bishops including his family members was the only people at the graveside.
It was only Governor Isa Yuguda that visited his residence apart from the host governor after the internment. The rest governors from the funeral service say to your tent o’ ISREAL.
