President Muhammadu Buhari has extolled the virtues of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, saying he was a patriot.
Yar’Adua who.ruled Katsina State as governor for eight years before becoming President died ten years ago as a seating President.
Buhari’s tribute to the memories of the late politician was contained in a press release issued Tuesday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
“Despite our 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.
“Every leader should be given the credit that he deserves, whether you agree with President Yar’Adua politically or not, I must say that history will always record his honest and sincere service to the country.
“As we remember President Yar’Adua today, let us emulate his patience and gentle nature so that we don’t introduce toxicity into our politics where opponents perceive each other as enemies.
“Let me also use this occasion to extend my prayers and goodwill to his family, and Katsina State Government on the 10th anniversary of his demise. May Allah continue to bless and comfort his gentle soul,” President Buhari was quoted to have said.
