Kashamu’s Death: We Shall All Die, Let’s Be Kind To The Dead, Tinubu Slam Obasanjo – Naijanewsdirect

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader may have sent an unmistakable reaction to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s condolence message on the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu.

In Tinubu’s condolence message, he underscored the need to show kindness to the dead, a trait missing in Obasanjo’s condolence message.

Tinubu said Kashamu’s death demonstrated the “transience of human life and rekindles the fact that death is inevitable for every mortal.”

Without addressing Obasanjo directly, Tinubu dropped a line of moral lesson to the former president:
“It behoves on us to be kind to the dead”.

On Saturday, Obasanjo had issued a controversial condolence message to the Ogun governor, Dapo Abiodun, by dredging out the past of the senator.

“The life and history of the departed have lessons for those of us on this side of the veil. Senator Esho Jinadu (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.

“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”, Obasanjo wrote.

His message triggered debate, as to whether he had not broken the cultural norm, by speaking ill of the dead.

Tinubu in his own message expressed deep shock and sadness about Buruji’s death.

According to him, Buruji’s death has lengthened the grotesque list of important personalities that have been lost to the COVID-19 pandemic.
