Obasanjo Condolence Letter To Buruji OnoBello (2)

Olusegun Obasanjo has issued a condolence message to the Ogun State Government over the death of Buruji Kashamu, a former senator and leader of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).

While describing Kashamu’s passing as sad, the former president noted that the former lawmaker’s death should be seen as a lesson for all mortals.

Kashamu, who died in Lagos on Saturday from coronavirus complications, was a controversial politician who for years was wanted by the United States government for alleged drug offences but managed to beat repeated extradition attempts.

Obasanjo prayed to God to forgive Kashamu’s sins and grant his family and friends fortitude to bear the loss.

“Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashmu) in his lifetime used the maneuver of law and politics to escape from facing justice on alleged criminal offence in Nigeria and outside Nigeria,” Obasanjo said in a letter which was made available to journalists by Mr Obasanjo’s special assistant on media, Kehinde Akinyemi.

He added, But no legal, political, cultural, social or even medical maneuver could stop the cold hands 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.”
