The Secretary to the government of the state, Mustapha Muhammad Inuwa has said that his relationship with late President Ummaru Musa Yaradua is cordial with full of tremendous respect.
In an interview with newsmen, Dr. Mustapha Inuwa revealed that he still considers late Yar’adua as his leader whom he worked with and treated with full of respect.
“You see, I worked under Umaru Musa Yar’Adua as I told you earlier; I have tremendous respect for him. I considered him as my leader and I still consider him as my leader. I have no apology for that.” He said
“We have mutual respect. That is why you can see he kept moving me from one place to another. And he trusted me.”
Mustapha Inuwa also revealed that he regretted that Umaru Musa Yar’Adua died without giving his best to Nigeria.
According to Inuwa, Yar’adu’s death is a loss to not only his Family, Katsina state but to Nigeria as a whole.
He however expressed dismay over how opposition plays politics with the relationship with late Yaradua by accusing him of not organising his remembrance day.
“Every year, especially during his remembrance day, journalists do talk to me about him. I always express my concern for him, but to organise a remembrance, one to me, is not within our culture and I don’t see it as something necessary.”
