…Condoles President Buhari
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed sadness over the death of media mogul, businessman and former minister of water resources, Malam Isma’ila Isa Funtua.
The party particularly commiserates with President Muhammadu Buhari over the death of Mallam Isa Funtua, who was Mr. President’s very close confidant, long-time friend and associate.
The PDP in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that Mallam Isa Funtua “would be remembered for the roles he played towards the development of our nation including his contributions as a minister of the Federal Republic, an outstanding publisher and life patron of the International Press Institute (IPI) and the Newspapers Proprietors Association of Nigeria (NPAN).”
The PDP condoled with the Mallam Isa Funtua’s family, the media industry as well as the government and people of Katsina state, and prayed God to grant eternal rest to the faithful departed.
