The Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre yesterday said it will hold a 20th memorial programme for the late Chief of Staff, Supreme Headquarters, Gen. Shehu Musa Yar’Adua on Friday in Abuja.

A statement by the Director-General of the centre, Jacqueline W. Farris said the anniversary is an opportunity to remember one of Nigeria’s foremost contemporary leaders who died in Abakiliki Prison on December 8, 1997.

The Memorial is scheduled for Friday, December 8, 2017 at 9:30am at the Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja. Prayers at the National Mosque will immediately follow.

“His Excellency Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR will serve as Chairman of the Occasion. His Excellency Ernest Bai Koroma, President and Commander in Chief of the Republic of Sierra Leone will deliver a Goodwill Message.
