President Muhammadu Buhari mourns Ismaila Isa Funtua

Last night, President Muhammadu Buhari said with deep sadness, he received information about his longtime friend and associate, Malam Isma’ila Isa Funtua, passing on.

Mallam Isa Funtua, who was a prominent journalist, was patron saint of Nigeria’s International Press Institute and Newspapers Proprietors Association (NPAN).

In a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu in Abuja, the President condoled the death, citing him as “greatly admired and respected” with family members, government and people of Katsina State, and all associates of the former NPAN president, particularly the media industry.

According to the article, “President Buhari claims that the death of the publisher and businessman has created a huge gap in his political journey as Malam Funtua has consistently stood by him.”
The president prayed to Allah for relief from the soul of Malam Funtua, and to give strength and strength to the family to bear the loss.
