It was made public after a prayer session for the repose of the soul of the late president, at his 14th remembrance and prayer day in Katsina.

The prayers were offered by different scholars at Katsina Government House to seek for Allah’s forgiveness to his gentle soul, and grant him Al-jannah.

In his remarks, Gov Radda said that Yar’adua was a man with humility, dedication and discipline qualities.

Also speaking, the former governor of the state, Ibrahim Shema, said that Yar’adua was a leader par excellence who chose to be servant of the nation and its people.

Also speaking, his junior brother, Sen. Abdulaziz Yar’adua, said that he grew up under the care of the late President Yar’adua, and learnt a lot of things from him.

One of his children, Shehu Umaru Yar’adua, said that their father could be remembered for what he had been telling them to “always fear Allah and search for knowledge.”

He urged people to continue to pray for the repose of the soul of their father. (NAN)
