Remembering Umaru Musa Yar’Adua: A Tribute to a Noble Leader

Tanimu Yakubu

In the quiet chambers of the heart, Mallam Umaru Musa Yar’Adua dwells,

A leader, a guiding light, where memories softly swell.

Beyond mere titles and roles, his essence shines bright and pure,

Leading our souls with wisdom, steadfast and sure.

Governor, President, a depth greater still,

Honoured for his integrity, a leader with an indomitable will.

In a realm where deceit often takes the stage,

He stood tall, honest, a beacon beyond age.

His gaze spoke truths, stirring emotions within,

Sincere and radiant, a rarity against life’s din.

Teaching us to transcend the shadows of ill will,

Embracing kindness, a light our hearts fulfill.

Our paths intertwined, a student humbled by his grace,

Enchanted by his visions, seeing far in every space.

Into the night, deep discussions would delve,

Guided by his wisdom, our spirits would unveil.

In history’s tapestry, his name gleams in gold,

A legacy of grace, a tale forever retold.

As tears once flowed for heroes long gone,

Mallam Umaru Musa Yar’Adua’s light carries on.

Rest in peace, noble soul, cradled in God’s gentle embrace,

Your spirit endures, an emblem of grace.

President, Commander, revered and true,

In our hearts, eternally, we pay tribute to you.

•Yakubu was Chief Economic Adviser to the late President Yar’Adua
