Jonathan stated that although Yar’Adua’s tenure was short-lived, Nigeria was blessed by him ruling the country.

Yar’Adua died exactly eight years ago today.

Remembering his former principal, Jonathan, who was full of praises for him, said Yar’Adua raised the bar of governance and put the nation’s needs above his own.

In a tweet, Jonathan wrote: “You raised the bar of governance and put the nation’s needs above yours, for which this nation owes you a debt of gratitude. May God continue to keep the family you left behind even as we pray that you continue to find peace in al jannah. Thank you for your services to Nigeria.

“Today, I remember the late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua, a great democrat and servant leader, whose leadership Nigeria was blessed to have if even for a brief period. Your legacy of fostering peace and progress in Nigeria and beyond is worthy of emulation.”



  1. He is still the best president so far, he wasn’t after his selfish needs. Everyone felt the impact of his leadership. Rest on

  2. I agree 100%, a very big one at that though that crook called Obasanjo attempted tainting that assertion with the very flawed process that brought him in.

  3. he is indeed the best president Nigeria has ever produced.
    may his soul continue to rest in peace.

  4. Both old, young enjoyed his tenure, he is a icon in d presidency section. Continue to rest in peace great man
