The former Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan was on 5th May paid tribute to the Ex-President late Umaru Musa Yar'Adua who died on 5th May 2010.  

Jonathan described late Yar'adua as a selfless leader who put the interest of his people first.

Jonathan was the vice president who worked with late President Yar'Adua from 2007 to 2010. Before his dead, they worked together for the growth of this nation. 

Below is the full tribute:

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.
