Minister Mourns Isa Funtua, Hails Contributions To Media Devt

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has

described the death of Mallam Isma’ila Isa Funtua as a rude shock and

a severe blow to the media industry in the country.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister hailed Mallam

Isa Funtua’s contribution to media development and his untiring

defence of free speech and the freedom of the press, starting from his

days as the founder of the Democrat Newspapers to his stint as the

President of the Newspaper Proprietors’ Association of Nigeria (NPAN).

He said Mallam Isa Funtua’s passion for the media industry saw him

serving as the life patron of the NPAN and taking active interest in

matters concerning the industry until his death.

”Mallam Isa Funtua was a man of many parts, with his eventful life

highlighted by service, whether as a media icon, an entrepreneur or a

philanthropist. He also served as a government Minister and a member

of the 1994-1995 Constitutional Conference, hallmarking his

versatility,” Alhaji Mohammed said.

He extended his condolences to Mr. President, other family and friends of the

late Isa Funtua, the NPAN and indeed the entire media industry.

The Minister prayed for the repose of the soul of the departed, and

for comfort and strength to the family he left behind.
