As the nation and Ogun state government continue to mourn the demise of her former senator, Prince Buruji Kashamu, former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has thrown a jab at the former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
Obasanjo, in his condolence message on Saturday mocked the late senator saying Kashamu evaded corruption charges but could not cheat death.
But in a swift reaction, Fayose took the former Nigeria leader to the cleaners adding both Kashamu and Obasanjo have collaborated on many things politically.
Fayose statement is reproduced in part below
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 collaborate with and most of the things he (Kashamu) did political were not with his collaboration?
Nigerians will watch out for his 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
