The former governor and Obasanjo been launching vitriolic and scathing remarks against one another over the last’s remarks on Senator Buruji Kashamu’s passing.
Obasanjo, in a letter of condolence address to Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun, asserted that Kashamu used instruments of law and politics to evade justice but couldn’t avoid death.
Be that as it may, Fayose, in his sympathy message portrayed the ex-president’s statement as regrettable, saying “Nigerians are watching for your end too”.
Countering Fayose’s ourburst, Obasanjo expressed that individuals can grieve him the manner in which they like after his demise, asking Nigerians criticizing him over his comment to gain from Kashamu’s lives and live well.
Notwithstanding, Fayose, in his response, said the former president ought to be should be prosecuted for the derisive insults towards the late Kashamu.
“Let me tell to you, Obasanjo has made hate speech and should be brought to book by this government. I pray one day I will become president of this country by God’s grace. Obasanjo will go back to prison. I’m telling you the truth because there are so many things Obasanjo must be questioned about.
“Obasanjo is not a saint when he came out of prison his farm at Ota was in shambles. But, today, it is back to life. Where did the money for resuscitating the once ailing farm come from? It was from the government.
“For the library, all governors at that time contributed 10 million naira each to support Obasanjo by force. The third term is still fresh in our memory. So, baba should stop telling us he is a saint. Shagari was not good enough. He imposed him on Nigerians. He brought Yar’ dua and Jonathan. Nobody is good to Obasanjo except himself.
“Whatever you say about Kashamu. He has paid his own dues, spent his time. No court convicted him and he left and departed the world. Everybody will have an end. Let wait and see how Obasanjo will end,” he added.
