President Musa Ya’Adua

It was 2 years on 6th May 2012

The 6th day of May 2012 was exactly two years that the cold hands of death took you away and you left us in the hands of the Buccaneers and non apologetic nor reasonable leaders.


When you were around we thought you were the bad and the weak one, the luckless one, the slow one and the sick one. Yes, you were sick, in fact, too sickly all through your administration, but you were never as sick as these current brain sick pirates and the no result oriented leaders you left behind for us. We all cried for your resignation at the height of your sickness, lampooning you, your first lady and your supporters, including the so called ‘kitchen cabinet’ (The first set of Cabals), asking you to die if you want to die and allow the  man with all the good luck in this world to lead us.


We forgot that even though you were sick, you were the very first Governor to have ever declared your assets publicly and you also remained the only President in the history of Nigeria to have ever declare his assets publicly. We conveniently forgot that even though you were gravely sick you were the first president to ever reduced the price of petrol pump price in Nigeria. This you did twice during your short period of administration. From seventy five naira (#75), you reduced the pump price of petrol to seventy naira (#70) and later the same reduction was made from seventy naira (#70) to sixty five naira (#65) and you never talked about any fuel subsidy and the economy did not collapsed like the present Brigands are making us believe (if there were ever any fuel subsidy).


We forgot that you didn’t afflict yourself with your sickness and so could do very little about it, but we still insisted that you just had to go, just because Mr luck will have the chance to rule us. We forgot that even though you were terminally ill, you still succeeded in solving the Niger Delta crisis which you were not the cause nor part of the cause, but which you promised to find a lasting solution to (while the present nitwits keep blaming others for their inability to govern a country well and keep threatening themselves).


You gave us rule of Law, Andy Uba lost in court and was removed as Anambra State Governor in less than three hours.

Segun Oni lost in Ekiti and was removed as Governor

Segun Agagu lost in Ondo and was removed as Governor

Daniel Osunbor lost in Edo and was removed as Governor

even though all of them are your party people, you never banged your power of presidency on Nigerians.

You can compare and contrast that with Timiprey Sylva’s case in Bayelsa and see if we are still practising any rule of law. President Umaru Musa Yar’adua, we have seen what a healthy president has been doing with the lives of Nigerians.

Rest In Peace
President Umaru Musa Yar’adua.

  1. Yar Adua’s government was flaccid, dormant and useless, however, Jonathan’s tenure has glorified it.

  2. Since you put it this way, I would ignore kaycee’s comment and say I think Yar fared better…What do I know bout this stuff?..I have been in prisons for the last 12yrs..still am..

    Happy birthday in arrears bbtagaro….$ß.

    1. I will be quick to support your opinion but careful to add to it. All the same, I personally think yaradua is one good leader we never had. Democracy is about the people and the rule of law, that he tried to do in every way. The first and only civilian president to admit the elections that made him the leader was not free and fair and subjected it to judicial scrutiny. To me , that is the height of sincerity any leader could exude in a society that is entirely corrupt, unreliable and deceitful.

    2. Bubbllinna @sibbylwhyte I.m really flattered with your birthday greetings. thank you and GOD bless

  3. I don’t even want to begin to talk about either of them.

  4. Birds of a feather they all are. Why did he become the president when he knew he was sick and dying? He lied when he declared his assets. Don’t ask me, ask Julian Assange


  5. He was no saint. He should not have accepted his party’s ticket. Maybe he would still be alive. But the intrigues and evil that occurred when he was ill were , to a great extent, not of his making. He exuded humility and he sure did some good. But in case we are so dim with history, Boko Haram struck for the first time in his reign. BUT GEJ IS NOT ENCOURAGING US AT ALL.
