‘Nda-Isaiah: Journalism has lost a trail blazer’

A former presidential candidate, Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, has described the death of Sam Ndah Isaiah, founder and publisher of the Leadership newspapers, as a loss to journalism.

Olawepo-Hashim, in a statement, said the absence of Ndah Isaiah in the journalism profession would deprive it of a committed and patriotic hand whose contributions to national development within the period he lived were of inestimable value.

He, however, said he was consoled that he was very visible on the political landscape and participated towards nation-building.

“As we mourn the death of this great man, I pray Almighty God will continue to strengthen his family.

To the wife and children, his larger family and the business organization he left behind, and to the Nupe Kingdom where he was the title holder of Kakaki Nupe, may Almighty God give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

“The journalism world has lost a trailblazer, a pharmacist who became an excellent journalist, Nigeria has indeed, lost a bridge builder and supporter of good ideas,” he added.
