Nigeria: Buhari, Jonathan, Atiku, Saraki Eulogise YarAdua At 10th Memorial


    Abuja — President Muhammadu Buhari; his predecessor, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan; former Vice President Atiku Abubakar; ex-Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki; and a former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, yesterday paid tributes to late President Umaru Musa YarAdua during his 10th memorial service.

    A statement by presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, quoted Buhari as extolling the virtues of the late former president who also hailed from Katsina State and governed the state from 1999 à 2007.

    Buhari said: « Despite our political differences, President YarAdua was unarguably a patriot because of his passion for the masses and his reversal of policies he believed were hurting ordinary Nigerians.

    « Every leader should be given the credit that he deserves. Whether you agree with President YarAdua politically or not, Je dois dire que l'histoire enregistrera toujours son service honnête et sincère au pays.

    « As we remember President YarAdua today, let us emulate his patience and gentle nature so that we dont introduce toxicity into our politics where opponents perceive each other as enemies. »

    Jonathan, in his message posted on his Twitter handle, noted that the late president left enduring legacies in his wholehearted devotion to the ideals of democracy, respect for peoplesrights, freedoms, and reason for living as well as a commitment to the rule of law and laws of equity and justice.

    Il a dit: « concurrence’Adua built bridges across Nigeria. He was a president like no other who lived and died for the sake of his country. He stood on the side of the people, toiling day and night to make their lives better.

    « President YarAdua built strong bridges of hope, love and understanding for which he became a force for national unity and positive change across our blessed land.

    « I will continue to remember President YarAdua as a colleague and a boss who became my brother and friend, » il ajouta.

    Atiku, in a statement by his media office, said Nigerians would not forget the achievements of YarAduas short-lived administration.

    « As each year passes by, we are constantly reminded of his outstanding leadership skills and decision-making acumen.

    « concurrence’Adua was a man that was never shy of reaching out to people; irrespective of political party affiliations whenever it came down to finding solutions to addressing issues that bedeviled us as a nation, » il a dit.

    Atiku explained that with the creation of the Niger Delta Ministry and the Amnesty Programme, he ushered in a new era of peace and stability in the Niger Delta region and by extension, the whole country.

    Saraki tweeted: « 10 years after President Umaru Musa YarAdua’s passant, we are constantly reminded about his humanity, his dedication to duty, and his desire for a Nigeria we can all be proud of. May Allah (SWT) forgive his sins and continue to retain for him a place in Aljanah Firdaus. »

    « We lost a leader in the late President YarAdua 10 il y a des années. When in July 2007 I led South-east senators to discuss challenges facing the region with him, he was surprised the region had no direct access to the world and graciously designated the Akanu Ibiam Airport, Enugu as an international airport, » Ekweremadu tweeted.
