Katsina State Governor Dikko Radda yesterday unveiled a book written on the former President Umaru Musa Yar’adua, titled “What Yar’adua told me and taught me”.

The book, was written by the former Executive Secretary, Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF), Mr Muttaqa Rabe-Darma, has over 600 pages. 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.

He said it was Yar’adua, who brought him into the timeline of politics, and was his mentor who shaped his life. Radda said that on several occasions, late former president spoke on moral authority, saying any leader who wanted to succeed must have it.

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.

“He was the leader who after taken oath of office, declared that his election has some faults and set up the Justice Uwais committee to make some corrections,” he said Shema said that the late president was a man of God and dedication for taking such decisions. He therefore urged people to continue to pray for the repose of his soul.
