Chairman of the Senate Committee on Investment, Senator Nenadi Esther Usman has described the death of late Governor Patrick Yakowa as the “end of a bridge-builder in Kaduna State.”
Yakowa died in a military chopper on his return from the burial of the father of Presidential aide, Oronto Douglas which held in Bayelsa State last Saturday.
A distraught Senator Usman, who represents Kaduna South Senatorial District, said with the death of Yakowa, Kaduna State has lost “an illustrious son who cared deeply for the people and was passionate about the socio-economic re-engineering of the state.
“The death of Yakowa is a great loss because he was passionate about Kaduna State and worked assiduously towards making the state a safe haven for all regardless of creed or religion.
“I am particularly saddened because I worked closely with him and knew his vision for Kaduna State but who are we to question God? Death is an inevitable end but we thank God for the time he was able to work for the people.”
Usman also condoled with the government of Bayelsa State over the death of former National Security Adviser, General Andrew Owoye Azazi, who died alongside Yakowa in the ill-fated crash.
