Gbenga Daniel Reveals The Last Wish Of Buruji Kashamu



Former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has revealed the last wish of late Senator Buruji Kashamu.

Gbenga disclosed that Kashamu, who passed away in Lagos at the weekend, wanted to make peace with everyone including his political foes before death snatched him away.

The ex-governor said this in a statement signed by his media aide, Steve Oliyide.

The former Governor explained that Kashamu sent a delegation to him on Wednesday, three days before he succumbed to Coronavirus complications.

According to him, Kashamu wanted him to take charge of his political structure in the state.

The statement said: “Buruji sent a delegation to me last Wednesday 4th August, 2020 who came to discuss with me about his wish that I should provide further leadership for the political structure which he built and has nurtured over the years.

“When the representatives which include his lawyer came, I discouraged political discussion and pleaded with them to all go and pray for his survival. Unfortunately, he passed on a few days after.

“We’re mourning a great man. His wish was to make peace with everyone before his death. As a human, you must have strong friends and strong enemies.

“We met in 2008. I recalled that he came to show appreciation for the construction of the road leading to his house. He said he was touched that I was able to construct the road despite the fact notable politicians like a former deputy governor and a former House of Representatives member have their houses along the same road.”

While empathizing with the family, Daniel said: “I’m not here to play politics but to commiserate with you the family. God will continue to uphold you because while alive Buruji helped a lot of people.

“He was somebody you should be proud of because he did his utmost best to help humanity.”

Reacting to the said visit, the son of the deceased, Kabiru Kasamu, said he was happy that the differences between Daniel and his father were resolved before his demise.

“I look forward to the continuation of such relationship between the two families,” he added.
