Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has condemned ex-Nigeria President, Olusegun Obasanjo for the controversial letter sent to the Ogun State Government following the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu.

 

Senator Kashamu who represented Ogun East Senatorial District in the National Assembly between 2015 and 2019, died of coronavirus in Lagos on Saturday.

 

After hearing about the death of the former PDP Governorship candidate during the 2019 election, Chief Obasanjo penned  a sensitive tribute to Governor Dapo Abiodun, claiming Kashamu “used the maneuver of law and politics to escape from facing justice, but could not maneuver the cold hands of death.”

 

“Senator Buruji Kashamu in his lifetime used the maneuver of law and politics to escape from facing justice on alleged criminal offence in Nigeria and outside Nigeria,” Obasanjo wrote in his tribute.

 

“But no legal, political, cultural, social, or even medical maneuver could stop the cold hand of death when the Creator of all of us decides that the time is up.

 

“May Allah forgive his sin and accept his soul into Aljanah, and may God grant his family and friends fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”

 

In reaction to the letter, Fayose, a two-time Governor of Ekiti State, described Obasanjo’s words as regrets and questioned him if he did not benefit from Kashamu who was a businessman during his lifetime.

 

“I commiserate with the family of Senator Buruji Kashamu for this irreparable loss and pray for the repose of his soul. The Almighty God will console those he left behind. I also condemn the statement made by former President Obasanjo on his (Kashamu) death,” Fayose tweeted.

 

“It is regrettable that Obasanjo could say what he said about Buruji Kashamu after his death and when he can no longer question him. Why didn’t he say that when Kashamu was alive?


“Can Obasanjo say in good conscience that he did not at some point collaborated with Kashamu and most of the things he (Kashamu) did politically were not with his collaboration?

 

“Nigerians will watch out for Obasanjo’s own end. He should stop forming saint because he is not. He should also remember that his own end will come too and nobody knows how the end will be.”
