Praises, knocks for Obasanjo over letter about Kashamu


Nigerians on Twitter have reacted to former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo’s comment about late Buruji Kashamu.

Obasanjo, in his condolence message to Ogun State Government, said while Kashamu’s death was “sad”, his life and history left “lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil.”

“Senator Buruji 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,” Obasanjo said, according to a statement signed by his spokesman Kehinde Akinyemi.

“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,” he added.

The ever vocal Nigerians on Twitter had divided opinion about the former president’s comment, some described it as insensitive others said Obasanjo is being blunt and refused to pretend even after death.
