Immediate past Ekiti governor, Ayodele Fayose has lambasted former President Olusegun Obasanjo for saying late former Ogun East District lawmaker, Buruji Kashamu allegedly used the instruments of law and politics to evade justice but couldn’t escape death.
“The life and history of the departed have lessons for those of us on this side of the veil. Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu) in his lifetime used the maneuver of law and politics to escape from facing justice on the alleged criminal offense in Nigeria and outside Nigeria.
“But no legal, political, cultural, social or even medical manoeuver could stop the cold hand of death when the creator of all of us decides that the time is up,” part of Obasanjo’s letter to Ogun Governor, Dapo Abiodun reads.
While commiserating with the family of the departed, Fayose described his death as an irreparable loss and pray for the repose of his soul.
In condemning Obasanjo’s statement, Fayose wondered why the former president never made such statement while he is alive. He further alleged that Obasanjo collaborated with him at a point in his dealings.
“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.”
