Ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has come out to say that he would always remember the undisputable achievements of late former President Umaru Yar’Adua’s government.
He revealed this in his tribute issued by his Media Adviser, Mr. Paul Ibe, to mark the 10th year anniversary of the death of the ex-president.
According to Atiku, the legacies of Umaru Yar’Adua will always have a massive impact on Nigerians because he was a man of the people.
He added that as the years go by, we are persistently reminded of his outstanding leadership skills and decision-making acumen while he was alive.
His words, “As each year passes by, we are constantly reminded of his outstanding leadership skills and decision-making acumen.
“Yar’Adua was a man that was never shy of reaching out to people; irrespective of political party affiliations, whenever it came down to finding solutions to addressing issues that bedeviled us as a nation.
“To him, it was country first before political, religious, and ethnic considerations.
“His belief in the oneness of Nigeria contributed to the vigor and passion we saw him display in bringing to a halt, the hostilities mounted on the nation’s mainstay and her people by militants.
“That singular act remains a milestone that would forever be remembered in the annals of Nigeria’s political and economic life.”
”The reduction of the fuel pump price due to the price reduction in the crude oil market was notable. His far-reaching policies that impacted positively on the lives of low-income families is worthy of emulation.”
“Of note, among his achievements, was adherence to the rule of law, which his administration was nicknamed.
“Yar’Adua’s no-nonsense stance on the issue of rule of law, indeed, gave the nation and her inhabitants the feeling that everyone and everybody is equal in the eyes of the law.
“The rule of law is the lifeblood of any democratic system.”
