Written by Noble People Team on 10 August 2020
Condolence message to Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun, Obasanjo commiserated with the state government and the people of Ogun over the death of the former lawmaker.
Obasanjo who described Kashamu’s death as a great loss in a letter on Saturday, however, lamented that “Kashamu in his lifetime used the manoeuvre of law and politics to escape from facing justice on the alleged criminal offence in Nigeria and outside Nigeria.”
But in a reply to Obasanjo’s statement, Fayose berated Obasanjo for his unsavoury statement on the late Kashamu, saying Nigerians are waiting for his end. The former governor said Obasanjo was wrong to have made such a comment when Kashamu could not defend himself.
Fayose wrote on Twitter: “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.
“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.
