President Yar'Adua's Funeral
Nigeria is mourning the death of president Umaru Yar'Adua who died late Wednesday night following a long illness.
The continent has been reacting to the news of his death on our Facebook page.
Chuks Nnaji, in Nigeria says:
Umaru Musa Yar'Adua will better be remembered for his credo to foster the "Rule Of Law" which was indeed his most salient mantra. His administration witnessed series of election tribunals' verdicts, many of which nullified the elections of State Governors from his ruling party PDP.
Kofi Ntifo Bekoe from neighbouring Ghana has a different view:
May his soul rest in peace. His heart problems overshadowed everything. As to his legacy, I am not quite sure how he will be remembered.
What are your memories of the late President Umar Yar'Adua? What is his legacy in Nigeria and Africa? How can Nigeria honour its fallen leader?
