Yar’Adua never wanted to be president – Ex first lady, Turai

Yar’Adua’s Son, Aminu Yar’Adua Remanded In Prison Custody Over Alleged Murder

Former First Lady of Nigeria , Hajiya Turai Yar’Adua, has said that her late husband, President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, never wanted to be president but a school teacher.

Turai said her late husband never liked politics and she could only describe him as an accidental politician.

She stated these while speaking to BBC Hausa on the 13th-year anniversary of his death.

According to her, Yar’Adua became the president of the country by destiny, disclosing that he was never desperate about it.

She said:

“His life ambition was to be a teacher, come home from school, sit with his family, and crack jokes till another day. He never wanted politics or governance but as Allah willed, he joined politics and became president.

“Although he was a president, at that time, his lifestyle hadn’t changed. He never borrowed expensive life and remained simple and an easygoing person.”

Speaking on her private life with him and how much she misses her husband, Turai said, “I think about Yar’adua every day, anniversary or no anniversary. I think about him and miss him every single day.

“But I am happy on such anniversary days because the country talks about him, and people across the country come together to say good things about him and pray for him. That truly gladdens my heart.”
