Sokoto State Governor, Honourable Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has condoled with the family of the publisher of Leadership Newspaper, Sam Nda Isaiah, who died on Friday.
This is contained in a statement signed by the state Governor and released to newsmen in Sokoto State on Saturday.
He said, “It is with heavy heart and sublime submission to the divine will of God that I receive the news of the demise of Mr Sam Nda Isaiah, the Chairman of the LEADERSHIP Group of Newspapers, who is also (Kakakin Nupe), at the age of 58.
“An accomplished journalist, diverse entrepreneur, pharmacist and politician, Mr Isaiah’s forage into the business of journalism and newspaper publishing no doubt filled a yawning gap of the North’s low engagement in the critical industry of di-urnalism in our country.
“This robust feat gave our dear region an edge not only in national politics but global outreach. It also helped in providing employment for a large chunk of our army of unemployed youths.
“On behalf of the government and good people of Sokoto State, I want to use this opportunity to condole his family, the ‘power’ people and government of Niger State for this great loss.”
He further said, “I also humbly commiserate with the Newspapers Proprietors Association of Nigeria (NPAN) and the LEADERSHIP Group of newspapers.
“May Almighty Allah grant and his family as well as his associates the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” he added.
