Buhari Pours Encomiums on Late President Yar'adua
As Nigerians observe the 10th anniversary of the death of former President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua, President Muhammadu Buhari has extolled the virtues of the leader, who served as Governor of Katsina State for eight years.
In a statement signed by the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari said despite their political differences, President Yar'Adua was unarguably a patriot because of his passion for the masses and his reversal of policies he believed were hurting ordinary Nigerians.
The president said every leader should be given the credit that he deserves, whether you agree with President Yar’Adua politically or not, he said that history will always record his honest and sincere service to the country.
He said politicians must emulate president Yar’dua’s patience and gentle nature so that toxicity will not be introduced into the politics where opponents perceive each other as enemies.
He extended his prayers and goodwill to his family and the Katsina State Government on the 10th anniversary of his demise.
