Yar’Adua who died on May 5, 2010, served as governor of Katsina State from 29 May 1999 to 28 May 2007 before being declared the winner of the controversial Nigerian presidential election held on 21 April 2007, and was sworn in on 29 May 2007.
Tributes to the late President won’t be complete without the one of his then vice president, former President Goodluck Jonathan who later succeeded him after his death.
The former President has paid tribute to his former boss in series of tweets on Tuesday, Jonathan who took over from Yar’Adua in 2007, said;
It has been a decade since His Excellency President Umar Musa Yar’Adua was snatched by the cold hands of death.
On this day, every year, his image fills our consciousness as a mark of his selflessness, typical modesty and exceptional flair.
President Yar’Adua no doubt left enduring legacies in his wholehearted devotion to the ideals of democracy, respect for peoples’ rights, freedoms and reason for living as well as commitment to the rule of law and laws of equity and justice.
I will continue to remember President Yar’Adua as a colleague and boss who became my brother and friend.
