Shocking as it may sound, and un-Nigerian it was, as some Kaduna residents were agog with celebrations when the news of the death of Governor Yakowa filtered in from Bayelsa.
People in Kawo, Angwarimi, Tudun Wada Pawa, Angwan Dosa, Mararaban Rido, some parts of Zaria and other surrounding villages are having “a shocking but fanatics jubilation” and youths driving bikes recklessly as if its Sallah celebration.
All Mai shayi joints are full with smiling faces of people who are delighted in ignorance that a brother died. That a governor who has given leadership his best, a man that honestly has excelled more than any governor in the North today, simply because he is not one of us.
He is a Christian. One of our own, a Muslim brother will replace him as the state’s new governor.
This is a big shame and quite embarrassing to an average God fearing Muslim, who is aware that life and death is only in the hands of Allah most compassionate. – Aliyu Bello.
