Ayodele Fayose, former governor of Ekiti State.

Ayodele Fayose, former governor of Ekiti State, has attacked former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, over his remarks on Buruji Kashamu, who died on Saturday over Coronavirus complications.

Mr Obasanjo while condoling with the family of the deceased said the late Senator takes pleasure in maneuvering law and politics to escape from facing justice over alleged criminal offence in the country 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 former Nigerian leader said through his spokesman, Kehinde Akinyemi.

Reacting, the former governor who also condoled the bereaved, lambasted the Obasanjo for tactically mocking the death, saying Nigerians are also waiting for his passing away.

“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,” Fayose said in a Saturday statement.

“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,” he added.
