- Ayodele Fayose has replied Olusegun Obasanjo over his comment on the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu
- The former Ekiti governor said that Obasanjo has no right to speak ill of the late senator
- Fayose added that the former Nigerian president cannot play saint because he is possibly one of Kashamu's accomplices
A former governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose, has slammed a former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, over the tone of his condolence message on the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu.
Fayose alleged that Obasanjo has no right to bad-mouth the late senator over some of his controversial activities because he was one of his accomplices.
The former Ekiti governor said that it is regrettable that Obasanjo is now coming now to speak ill of the deceased lawmaker at a time when he cannot answer any question.
Fayose categorically claimed: "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."
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Obasanjo had sent a condolence letter to the governor of Ogun state, Dapo Abiodun, over the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu.
In the letter dated Saturday, August 8, the former president described Kashamu's death an "irreparable loss".
The letter reads: "I received the sad news of the demise of Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu) a significant citizen of Ogun State. Please accept my condolence and that of my family on this irreparable loss.
"The life and history of the departed have lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil. Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu) in his lifetime used the manoeuvre of law and politics to escape from facing justice on alleged criminal offence in Nigeria and outside Nigeria.
"But no legal, political, cultural, social or even medical manoeuvre could stop the cold hand of death when the Creator of all of us decides that the time is up.
"May Allah forgive his sin and accept his soul into Aljanah, and may God grant his family and friends fortitude to bear the irreparable loss."
