Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose had condemned comments made by former President Olusegun Obasanjo on the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Fayose as saying Obasanjo should stop forming saint and that he should remember that his own end will come too.
Recall that Obasanjo had in a letter to Dapo Abiodun, the Governor of Ogun State, stated that while Kashamu’s death was “sad”, his life and history left “lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil.”
Obasanjo, however, in the letter, supposedly condolence one, further stated that 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.
“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,” Obasanjo added.
Reacting, Fayose stated that it was regrettable that Obasanjo could say what he said about 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,” stated the former Governor of Ekiti State.
