Ismaila Isa Funtua, an associate of President Muhammadu Buhari, is dead.

In a tweet, Bashir Ahmad, another aide of the president, described Funtua’s death as sudden.

“Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un! Just heard about Mallam Ismaila Isa Funtua’s sudden death. This life! May Allah accept his soul, forgive his shortcomings and grant him Jannah al-Firdaus,” he tweeted.


He was the founding managing director of Democrat Newspaper and former president of the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigeria (NPAN).

Funtua and Kyari were very close to the president.

Like Buhari, Funtua hailed from Katsina state.
