Former governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose, has reacted to a statement credited to ex-President’s Olusegun Obasanjo over the death of Buruji Kashamu.
Obasanjo said Kashamu used the instruments of law and politics to evade justice over the criminal charges leveled against him in and outside Nigeria but could not evade death.
Fayose condemned Obasanjo’s statement, saying Nigerians will also be on the lookout for the manner in which Obasanjo will die.
Fayose said it is regrettable that Obasanjo could say that about the deceased “when he can no longer question him”.
He wondered why the former president did not utter such statements when Kashamu was alive.
Fayose said in a statement:
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.
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
