Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that In a captivating and touching post on Facebook, former president Goodluck Jonathan has described his predecessor Yar’Adua as a president like no other who lived and died for the sake of Nigeria.
Jonathan's post came ten years after the death of the former president.
The former president described Yar'Adua as someone who stood on the side of the people, and who toiled day and night to make Nigerians' lives better.
His post reads:
"It has been a decade since His Excellency President Umar Musa Yar'Adua was snatched by the cold hands of death. On this day, every year, his image fills our consciousness as a mark of his selflessness, typical modesty and exceptional flair.
"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 Yar'Adua built strong bridges of hope, love and understanding for which he became a force for national unity and positive change across our blessed land.
"In many ways he stood out. He had an accommodating spirit and enormous goodwill that secreted a web around our national fault lines to strengthen the bond; thus leaving for his successors the task of reinforcing the band," the post reads in part.
