Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has reacted to the death of his fellow Ogun State politician, Buruji Kashamu, who succumbed to Covid-19-related death some hours ago.
The former president, in a condolence message sent to the family of the deceased by his Spokesman, Kehinde Akinyemi, said while Kashamu’s death was “sad”, his life and history left “lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil.”
“Senator Buruji 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,” Obasanjo said.
“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”
