Late Kaduna State Governor Patrick Yakowa and Late Andrew Azazi

Governor Sullivan Iheanacho Chime of Enugu State has condoled with the governments of Kaduna and Bayelsa States and the families of  late Governor Patrick Yakowa and Gen. Andrew Azazi (rtd) who died in the ill-fated helicopter crash, Saturday.

In a statement issued by Chuks Ugwoke, the State Commissioner for Information, and made available to THISDAY,  Governor Chime described their untimely death as not only shocking and tragic but a monumental loss to the entire country. He also mourned the death of others who perished in the crash.

In the statement, the Enugu governor extended his heart-felt condolences to the families of the deceased while also praying for the repose of their souls.

The release read in part: “As a peace agent who ensured peaceful co-existence among adherents of different faiths, Governor Yakowa served his people with commitment and was an embodiment of humility and selfless service which brought about huge development in Kaduna State.
“On his part too, Gen. Azazi (rtd) was a dutiful and gentleman officer and a statesman who served his people and nation with diligence and integrity.”
