Still on the Olympics Jmaboree: Spotted is Patrick Yakowa, Kaduna State Governor
Just like his counterpart Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State, Kaduna State Governor, Patrick Yakowa, has also being spotted in London on an Olympics jamboree, accompanied by some officials of his government.
Officially, only three officials accompany Mr. Yakowa: the Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Alh. Nazifi Jibrin Mohammed; the Chairman House Committee on Sports, Hon Yakubu Bitiyong; and the Director of Sports in the Sports Ministry, Alh Yakubu Halidu.
A statement by the governor’s media aid, Reuben Buhari, said that the governor was invited to attend the opening ceremonies. It also said, “While in London, His Excellency will also follow up onsome investment opportunities earlier initiated for invited Nigeria Government officials by the organizers of the 2012 London Olympic.”
Sources in the United Kingdom have confirmed that there several people on his entourage, including family members and some associates who linked up with him in London.
In view of the crises that Kaduna State is going through, sources say people in the State are upset, some of them accusing the governor of not living up to his words.
“He said another thing and do another thing, what will take a serious governor from Kaduna State to Olympics?” asked one. “There is no just no reason rather wasting of public funds and shortage of idea to run the state.”
Continuing, he said, “Yakowa is insensitive considering the insecurity in our state; he is not going with three persons alone. His family has reconnected with him and other politicians from the state.”
We sincerely hope that more names will not spring up of the Governor’s on Jamboree list at the Olympics.
