“A friend and brother” ex-president Goodluck Jonathan pays tribute to late president Umaru Musa Yar’Adua who died exactly 7 years ago today
Former President Jonathan took to his Facebook page to pay glowing tribute to his friend and former boss, President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua who died on May 5th 2010, exactly 7 years today. Jonathan in his tribute acknowledged Yar’Adua’s contribution to the restoration of peace in the Niger Delta. He wrote;
Seven years ago you left this world leaving behind a legacy of detribalized leadership and a soil that was fertile enough to grow trees whose shade you would never enjoy.
As a peace maker, you helped bring peace to the Niger Delta and that singular act brought manifold benefits to Nigeria. As a democrat, you promoted due process in government and equity in public administration. Umar Musa Yar’adua, a friend and brother, a great gift to the nation and people of Nigeria. Seven years gone but never forgotten. May you Rest In Peace even as we hope and believe that you made al-Jannah firdaus. Miyetti Allah for the life of service you lived and may Almighty God care for the family you left behind. GEJ.
