Nigerians Pays Tribute To Late President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua

Late President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua was the 13th president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He died after a brief illness, 9 years ago, on 5th May 2010 at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, the federal capital of Nigeria.

Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, who was the country's vice president at the time, was one of the prominent Nigerians to pay their tribute to the late Yar'Adua.

Taking to his tweeter page, he wrote: "On this day nine years ago I lost a friend, colleague, brother, and boss, President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua. He was a selfless leader who placed national interest above personal and ethnic gains.

President Yar'Adua was a man of integrity with a humble spirit who always took upon himself the burden of national reconciliation, peace-building, and democratic consolidation.

He used the opportunity he had in public service to build bridges of love, foster unity and give hope to Nigerians.

Today, I remember and celebrate him for the works that he had done. Peace he lived for and homes of peace he built. Democracy he loved and democracy he nurtured. We will always remember you for your service. A servant leader truly you remain.

After his death, Jonathan took charge as the acting President and was later elected as the country's President in 2011.
