Former President Goodluck Jonathan pays tribute to Late President Umar Musa Yaradua on the 9th anniversary of his passing.

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. – Goodluck Ebele Jonathan GCFR
