Dame Patience Jonathan broke down and wept as she paid a condolence visit to Mrs. Amina Yakowa at the Government House in Kaduna earlier today.
The first lady while extolling the virtues of the late Patrick Yakowa, asserted that he was a true patriot, who was dedicated to the welfare of his people.
Her condolence message read: “Our dearly beloved Governor Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa, we received with rude shock news of your sudden and painful departure. We, however, give God praise that you lived a worthy life full of honour and integrity.
“We are also gladdened that you were a true patriot who was devoted to the welfare of your people without respect for the divides and differences. Our prayers is that God, almighty will receive you into His peace and grant you sweet repose.”
Governor Patrick Yakowa was in the helicopter that crashed on Saturday, December 15th in Bayelsa state together with former NSA, General Owoeye Azazi. The crash killed everyone on board.
