Yar’Adua, who led Nigeria for 3 years, died aged 58 in Saudi Arabia and was flown back for burial. The known cause of death was pericarditis, inflammation of a membrane around the heart.
Remembering the former President, Sani, a lawmaker on the platform of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, on Sunday, May 5 to heap praises on the late Yar’Adua.
“President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua died on this day nine years ago. He was a honest man, a true democrat, respecter of the rule of law and a humble visionary.
“May Allah forgive his soul and grant him Aljanna Firdausi. Amin,” Sani wrote on Twitter.
