The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has vowed to send the former president Olusegun Obasanjo back to prison if he becomes Nigerian president in the future.
Recall that Messrs Fayose and Obasanjo had been at loggerheads following the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu who died last weekend of complications suspected to be COVID-19.
Earlier, Mr Fayose faulted the condolence messaged penned by Mr Obasanjo who alleged that the deceased had used instruments of law and politics to evade justice but couldn’t avoid death
Mr Fayose took it up again on Mr Obasanjo on Tuesday while featuring on “Plus Politics”, a programme on PlusTV Africa, monitored by The Nation in Ado Ekiti.
The former Ekiti governor said the former president 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.
