Shehu Sani Reacts As Bandits Kill Abducted Kaduna Priest

The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the Nigerian Senate, Shehu Sani, has praised Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, a former president, who died in office 2010, nine years ago today.

Naija News recalls that Yar’Adua was the second civilian president under Nigeria’s current constitution after winning the 2007 Presidential election.

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.
