The former Governor of Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose has blasted former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his unpatriotic statement on a condolence message to late Senator Buruji Kashamu.
Recall that Senator Kashamu died of COVID-19 on Saturday night and has been laid to rest. Many people condoled with the family and prayed for his soul.
Obasanjo, in his condolence letter, stated that late Senator Kashamu used all tricks to evade justice both in Nigeria and outside the country but couldn’t hide from death.
Fayose stated that Obasanjo should stop claiming a Saint as most of the things Kashamu did politically was with his collaboration.
Fayose said, “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?”
He told Nigerians to watch out for Obasanjo’s end which will come one day and he has no idea how it will happen.
“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 a saint because he is not. He should also remember that his own end will come too and nobody knows how the end will be.”
Recall that Senator Kashamu sued Obasanjo got libel after the former stated that he was a fugitive from the US justice system.
