Widow of the late Kaduna State Governor Patrick Yakowa, Amina, said in Kaduna on Sunday that her worst regret was not praying with her husband before he embarked on his last journey to Bayelsa State on Saturday.
She stated this yesterday in Kaduna, during a church service organised for her late husband.
Amina said the usual routine for them was to offer private prayer every morning, before they step out of the house.
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 bereaved widow said 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 President’s wife, Dame Patience Jonathan scheduled to hold on Sunday, Dec.16.
Yakowa; ex-National Security Adviser, Gen. Andrew Azazi , and four others died when a Naval Augusta 109 Helicopter in which they were travelling crashed in the Nembe-Okoroba in Bayelsa State.
They were returning from the burial of Pa Douglas, the father of an aide to Jonathan, Oronto Douglas.
But for his death, Amina and her late husband, would have celebrated 34 years of marriage on the 23rd of December.
She described her marriage to the late governor as a happy one.
