Abuja Bids Adieu: Isa Gusau, Trusted Spokesman to Governors, Laid to Rest

Gusau, aged 47, who had served as special adviser on public relations and strategy to a former governor of Borno State, now Vice President Kashim Shettima and the incumbent governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, died on Thursday evening at a hospital in India after a protracted illness.

A family source who did not want his name mentioned said he had looked fine before getting a message from one of his doctors to come to Egypt.

“The situation became critical, so he had to be transferred to India where he died due to complications.”

The deceased, who was a former staff of Daily Trust Newspaper where he rose to the position of Bureau Chief, is survived by two wives, three children, and many brothers and sisters.

The governor, who was accompanied by Vice President Shettima, personally conveyed the remains of Gusau from Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport to the National Mosque in Abuja where the funeral prayer was observed.

He also praised the commitment of the late media strategist in managing information, especially during the challenging times faced by Borno State and the entire Northeast sub-region.

Governor Yahaya described the loss as particularly poignant, especially during a time when the late media adviser’s expertise and support were most needed.

He said, “The late media adviser worked diligently for Governor Zulum and government of Borno State, and left an indelible mark in the field of journalism, media strategy and information management. He will surely be remembered for his hard work, commitment to duty and professionalism.”

The governor urged strength for family members, Governor Zulum, the government and the people of Borno State over the profound loss and prayed to Almighty Allah to forgive the shortcomings of the deceased and reward his good deeds with Aljannat Firdaus.
