President Muhammadu Buhari has lost two of his most respected friends in the last three months.

Though, death remains inevitable. No one wish to lose his loved one or a working partner.

President Muhammadu Buhari received the death news of his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari on 17th April 2020 with great shock. Abba Kyari was an important and a key personality in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari before his death.

He died of COVID-19 at the First Cardiology Centre, Ikoyi thereby creating a huge vacuum in the presidency before President Muhammadu Buhari appointed Ibrahim Gambari in May to replace Abba Kyari in office.

Many Nigerians extolled the virtue of late Abba Kyari, how he had assisted them before he died.

Notably among who did this was Geoffrey Onyema, Foreign Affairs Minister. He took people through the memory lane, how Borno-born man was his best man on his wedding day and how he assisted him in many ways.

TheCable proprietor, Simon Kolawole also eulogized late Abba Kyari how he assisted the online news platform in making sure one of its staff regain freedom after his investigate report was leaked to the security agency.

President Buhari has lost Kaduna-born Ismaila Isa Funtua to death today. This was revealed in Tweet by Buhari's Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmed.

His Tweet reads: "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".


Funtua was a long time friend to President Muhammadu Buhari, an Alumnus of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. He was reported to have died of cardiac arrest.

Until his death was Founding Managing Director of Democrat Newspaper and former President of the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigeria (NPAN).

He was also a life patron Newspaper's Proprietors Association of Nigeria (NPAN) and Chairman Bulet Construction Company.

He will be greatly missed by Kaduna State and Nigeria at large.
