Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday mocked the late Senator Buruji Kashamu, whom he described as a man that maneuvered the law and politics, but could not say no to the call of death from God.
In a Letter, titled: LETTER OF CONDOLENCE’ he sent to Ogun State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, on the passing of the senator, who represented Ogun East senatorial district in the 8th Senate, Obasanjo prayed to Allah to forgive the senator’s sins and grant his soul aljanah.
According to Obasanjo: ‘‘I received the sad news of the demise of Sen. Buruji Kashmu, a significant citizen of Ogun. 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. Kashamu in his lifetime used the maneuver 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 maneuver 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”.
