Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan took to his Twitter page to pay a tribute to former boss and friend, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua who died on May 5th, 2010, exactly 9-years yesterday.

In his tribute, Jonathan who worked as Yar’Adua’s vice from from 2007 to 2010 acknowledged his contributions and also praised him for carrying the burden of national reconciliation, peace-building, and democratic consolidation.

Read the full tribute below;

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. 

He used the opportunity he had in public service to build bridges of love, foster unity and give hope to Nigerians.

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.

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.
