The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose rebuke Chief Olusegun Obasanjo for not being kind to the dead in his condolence letter to Senator Buruji Kashamu who died of COVID-19 complications on Saturday and buried at his home in Ijebu-Igbo on Sunday.
Tinubu subtly advised that people should be kind to the dead while Fayose bluntly reminded Chief Obasanjo that he (Obasanjo) will “still die”.
Asiwaju Tinubu advised that the demise of Buruji Kashamu demonstrated that death is inevitable for every mortal.
Tinubu’s tribute is coming a day after former President Olusegun Obasanjo in a message titled, ‘Letter of condolence,’ addressed to Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun, alleged that Kashamu used the instruments of law and politics to evade justice.
Tinubu said Kashamu worked assiduously to advance the political and economic fortunes of his state – Ogun.
He said, “We must all continue to embrace all the protective protocols recommended by the government and health authorities, even as we gradually begin the reopening of our economy and return to a new normal in our lifestyles.
“I admire his (Kashamu’s) political doggedness and sagacity, and his steadfastness in pursuing whatever he believes in, though we were never in the same political party.
“His passing has lengthened the grotesque list of important personalities that have been lost to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also a sad reminder that the deadly virus remains very much with us.”
