Funtua helped female politicians -Aisha Buhari
Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, on Wednesday, pointed that the late Isa Funtua was helpful to several female politicians in the last four years by influencing board appointments for them.
Mrs Buhari made this known while paying tribute to the late Funtua via a post on her social media platforms.
Recall that Funtua, an ally of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), died on Monday in Abuja.
During his lifetime, he was one of the power brokers behind Buhari’s regime, leading to him being described as one of the “cabal members.”
Funtua; the late former Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari; and the President’s nephew, Mamman Daura; are among the people believed to have a stronghold on Buhari and his regime.
Mrs Buhari said Funtua would be remembered for his support to female politicians.
She wrote, “Inna lillahi Wa inna ilaihi Raji’un. On behalf of my family, I extend our condolence to Mrs Hauwa Isa Funtua and the entire family on the sudden death of Malam Ismaila Isa Funtua.
