Kashamu’s death, lesson for all mortals… Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday said the death of Senator Buruji Kashama was a lesson for all mortals.
Obasanjo, who commiserated with Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, over the demise of the politician, noted that while Kashamu’s death was “sad”, his life and history left “lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil”.
In a statement signed by his spokesman Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo added, “Senator 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.”
Kashamu’s death was announced on Saturday by his former colleague, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce.
He reportedly died from COVID-19 complications.
