Goodluck Jonathan Remembers Umar Musa Yar' Adua Seven Years After Death

Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has paid tribute to a former president of the country, Umar Musa Yar'adua whom he served with as vice-president.

Yar'Adua died on the 5th of May, 2010 while serving as president after losing the battle with an illness.

Jonathan 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 peacemaker, 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"
