Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has chided former President Olusegun Obasanjo on his comment about late Senator Buruji Kashamu.
On Saturday, Obasanjo in his condolence message to the Ogun State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun said Kashamu was able to maneuver the law but couldn’t maneuver death.
The former president in the letter said Kashamu’s life and history left “lessons for those on this side of the veil.”
However, Fayose in a rebuttal statement via his official Twitter account condemned Obasanjo’s condolence letter.
He accused Obasanjo of having collaborated with the late Sen. Kashamu in some point when he was alive.
Fayose also reminded the late present that Nigerians are looking forward to his own time as death is inevitable.
The statement reads as follows;
“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.”
Sen. Kashamu died on Saturday due to COVID-19 complicatons in Lagos State.
