This is What Yar'Adua Told His Wife On His Dying Bed.

This is What Yar'Adua Told His Wife On His Dying Bed.

President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua died on the 5th of May, 2007. As the country mourned the late president, the citizens chewed on the thought of how great of a leader he would have been, he would have led Nigerians to the promised land. Former President Goodluck Jonathan's words:

"Nigeria lost the jewel on its crown, so the heavens mourned with our nation that fateful day."

Permit me to say that heaven still mourns our dear nation because we have not seen this kind of President. Will we ever see the kind of President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua was? I guess not, we just hope when the heavens stop mourning that they would send us a messiah, someone like the Late President who would make Nigeria great again.

Late Umaru Musa Yar'Adua restored decency in our nation's economic and political terrain, he wanted to lead that fight.

Yar'Adua had this dream for Nigeria, during his campaign he tabled his 7-point gender, Do you know how he wanted to make Nigeria great? By actualizing his 7-point agenda, that bordered on Critical infrastructural development to wealth generation by providing jobs.

On his dying bed, Late President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua said to his wife. 

In his words:

"Turai, I pity you because when I die you will quarrel with my relatives because they think I have so much money left in my possession”.

This is a norm for all ethnic groups in Nigeria, I guess, because I am familiar with a lot of them. When a wealthy man dies, relatives scamper around his properties waiting like a patient dog, so that the properties can be shared and they can walk home with their lots, not even taking the kids and the wife of the deceased into consideration.

The major thing Nigeria misses today is the husband of Turai Yar'Adua because I believe if he was alive, Nigeria would have been a place where citizens would have seen the proceeds of their blood, sweat, and tears. People will be happy with the state of things. If you think I am lying. You can ask anybody this question and I quote, "Who do you think was the best President, Nigeria has ever had?"
