Alhaja Turai Yar’adua has paid a courtesy visit to Aso Rock several years after the death of her husband, former President of Nigeria, Alhaji Musa Yar’adua. Musa Yar’adua was elected as president in the general election held in 2007 under the umbrella of the People’s Democratic Party ( PDP).
Sadly, Yar’adua suffered a derailing health condition that marred the success of his administration. He died on the 5th of May 2010, this led to the abrupt end of his administration and his vice, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan was appointed as the acting President until the end of their administration in 2011.
After the death of Yar’adua, Alhaja Turai Yar’adua vacated the state house as the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. After several years, the former First lady paid a courtesy visit to Aso Rock where she was received by the First Lady, Alhaja Aisha Buhari in the government house.
The First Lady, Aisha Buhari who could not hide her joy took to Instagram to share some pictures of the former First Lady’s visit.
See her post below:
Yesterday, I received my sister, former First Lady, HE, Hajiya Turai Yar’adua at the State House with her daughter Mrs Zainab Dakingari and Mrs Abdulaziz Yar’adua .
I was pleased to see Mrs. Yar’adua in high spirit, we rubbed minds on a number of issues that touches on issues of gender based violence, drug abuse and youth development in Nigeria.
I also got to hear her experience and perspectives on these issues.
I conducted Her round the area of what used to be her former office and while she reminisced her time in the state house, she also inspected the pictures of former First Ladies in the conference hall which she initiated during her time in order to honor all the Nigerian former First Ladies.
