On January 10, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, added a year to his life and his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Imam Imam, took out time to pen him a note. Hear Him:
Eulogising the life of any person, especially a respected leader who has stood for the common good, is not easy. As US President Barrack Obama said while reading his tribute at the funeral of the great Nelson Mandela, it is hard to capture in words not just the facts and the dates that make a life, but the essential truth of a person – their private joys and sorrows; the quiet moments and unique qualities that illuminate someone’s soul. How much harder to do so for a giant of history, who moved a nation toward justice, and in the process moved billions around the world.
