Isa Funtua Died After Driving Himself To The Hospital by sarrki(m): 10:16pm On Jul 20, 2020
former President of the Newspapers Proprietors of Nigeria( NPAN), Mallam Isa Funtua, is dead.

The close ally of President Muhammadu Buhari died on Monday night shortly after driving himself to a hospital.

Funtua, who was a former Minister in the Second Republic, reportedly felt unease at about 4pm.

The Nation learnt he did not take things for granted and he drove himself to a hospital where he died.

A source said: “It is difficult to confirm what really happened but he lost the battle after getting to the hospital.

“Some said it was cardiac arrest but only his doctors can conform what went wrong. ”

An in-law to Buhari, the deceased would be buried on Tuesday.

Among early callers to his residence was a former Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Mallam Wada Maida.

Until his death, he was one of the most influential politicians and businessmen in Nigeria.

He had in the early 1980s established The Democrats, an all-colour newspaper which became authoritative on political matters.
His construction firm, Bulet, became a household after constructing the magnificent Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation.
He recently clarified he was not seeking to be Chief of Staff to Buhari or contest the Presidency in 2023.
Although prayers were being offered for repose of his soul at Shagari Mosque in Area 1 part of Abuja, The Nation was reliably informed he would be buried by 1pm on Tuesday.

Asymptomatic covid 19... before he knew he had covid it was already too late and his organs failing

Now that Issa Funtua and Aba Kyari are gone, I wonder who would stabilise Buhari's headless regime, Atleast Nigerians would find somebody else to blame

Are you jealous? This country has been under the bondage of these cabal which some people have wittingly handed over for them to rule as their fiefdom.Pharoah attempted to do likewise but his Waterloo was documented in histroy.God who took care of Abacha is still on the throne.

Stop capitalization of every first letter in your post. NL is an international forum.

This is not how to "sell" Jesus to others. Will Jesus type like this?

Prof sir,


Why do you always follow Righteousness89 from thread to thread to correct the grammatical errors in his posts?

This action may look like an attempt to intimidate him from posting his views about the needs to be righteous especially in preparation for the life-after-death.
