Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has condoled with the Ogun state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun on the death of Sen. Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu).

Obasanjo, in a condolence letter to the governor, copy made available to newsmen, by his Special Assistant Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, said that the news of the death of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) stalwart was sad, but noted that, the life and history of the departed have lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil.

According to the former President, “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.

“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.”
