Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has attacked ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo over his official statement reacting to the death of ex-Senator Buruji Kashamu.


Obasanjo in a condolence letter to the Ogun state governor, Dapo Abiodun, said the deceased Senator used the instruments of law and politics to evade justice over the criminal charges leveled against him in and outside Nigeria but could not evade death. Read here.


Reacting to Obasanjo’s statement, Fayose who has never hidden his dislike for the former President, took to his Twitter handle to attack him. According to Fayose, Obasanjo should remember that his own end will come too and ”nobody knows how the end will be”.


His tweets read

”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.”
