Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has berated former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his condolence message to the family of late Senator Buruji Kashamu.
Obasanjo, in a letter to the family of the deceased said that he escaped facing justice for his alleged crimes but could not escape death.
“Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashmu) in his lifetime used the maneuver of law and politics to escape from facing justice on alleged criminal offences in Nigeria and outside Nigeria.
“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 “, the letter read in part.
Reacting to the message via his Twitter handle, Fayose condemned Obasanjo and asked why the former president didn’t say it to Kashamu while he was still alive.
He tweeted: “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.”
