Former Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Jonathan has eulogized his former principal, Late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua who passed on eight years ago while in office.
President Yar’adua passed away on the 5th of May, 2010 after a protracted illness paving way for President Jonathan who was his Vice at that time to mount the saddle as Nigeria’s President.
In a message on his twitter handle to mark his death anniversary, former President Jonathan described late Yar’adua as a great democrat and servant leader whose leadership Nigeria was blessed to have even for a brief period.
He further described Yar’adua’s legacy of fostering peace and progress in Nigeria and beyond as worthy of emulation.
“Today, I remember the late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua, a great democrat and servant leader, whose leadership Nigeria was blessed to have even for a brief period. Your legacy of fostering peace and progress in Nigeria and beyond is worthy of emulation”, he said.
Jonathan recalled that the late President raised the bar of governance and put the nation’s needs above his, for which the nation owed him a debt of gratitude.
He prayed God continue to keep the family he left behind even as he prayed that the late President continue to find peace in al jannah.
“Thank you for your services to Nigeria”, he said.
