Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has frowned at the language of Former President Obasanjo in the condolence message to late Senator Buruji Kashamu family.
Obasanjo had written few hours after Kashamu’s death, saying the former senator “escaped justice but could not escape death”, an obvious reference to the deceased running battle with law enforcement agents over plans to extradite him to US over charges of fraud.
Fayose, however, slammed the former president for not addressing Kashamu in that manner when alive and accused him of collaborating with the deceased on some of his political actions.
“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,” Fayose concluded.
