Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State has described his late spokesperson, Malam Isa Gusau, as a tireless advocate and exceptional professional who discharged his responsibilities transparently.
In his condolence message issued on Friday in Maiduguri, Zulum said the state has lost a thorough professional who committed himself to projecting the image of the state.
“Malam Isa Gusau was admired by everyone for his commitment to the people of Borno and his exceptional professionalism in discharging his role.
“He was a tireless advocate for the state and worked tirelessly to communicate the government’s initiatives and policies to the public with clarity and transparency,” Zulum said.
“Isa Gusau will be remembered for his passion for serving the people of Borno and his dedication to the betterment of the state,” the governor stated.
Zulum said he would miss a very dedicated and cherished member of his team.
Mr Gusau died on Thursday after a long illness at a hospital in India.
He worked with the Daily Trust newspaper before joining the then Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno as Special Adviser on Public Relations and Strategy, and later Governor Zulum in the same capacity, until his death.
Gusau is survived by two wives and three children.
