Nigerians on social media today are celebrating the memory of a former president, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, who died in office on this day, ten years ago.
The two-time Katsina Governor is revered by most Nigerians as the best President by far since the return to multi-party democracy in 1999. He was the second civilian president under Nigeria’s current constitution. He won controversial polls after his predecessor – Olusegun Obasanjo’s aborted plan to extend his stay from 1999 – 2007 got stiff opposition from the then ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
