Falana warns Obasanjo

Lawyer Femi Falana SAN says ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo did not abuse African tradition by criticising the late ex-Senator, Buruji Kashamu.

But Femi Falana SAN quickly note that Obasanjo’s message was veiled with hypocrisy. He said “it is against the African culture to aid and abet a criminal suspect in his lifetime, only to turn round to attack him in his grave.”

Femi Falana SAN however urged the former head of state  to “stop insulting the collective intelligence of the Nigerian people.”

According to reported, the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the 2019 election in Ogun State, died of COVID-19 at the age of 62.

Kashamu, who once represented Ogun East Senatorial District between 2015 and 2019 at the National Assembly, was buried on Sunday. The burial took place  at Ijebu-Igbo his hometown in accordance with Islamic rites.

The late lawmaker had faced extradition to the United States for alleged drug trafficking until his death.

Ex-President Obasanjo however , in a message titled, ‘Letter of condolence,’ alleged that Kashamu used the instruments of law and politics to evade justice.

“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 manoeuvre of law and politics to escape from facing justice on alleged criminal offence in Nigeria and outside Nigeria.

He also said “But no legal, political, cultural, social or even medical manoeuver could stop the cold hand of death when the creator of all of us decides that the time is up,”

Obasanjo’s letter had attracted criticisms from many Nigerians, including former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

In his reaction titled, ‘Matters Arising From Chief Obasanjo’s Condolence Letter,’ Falana wrote:

Governors Forum Sues for Accurate Dissemination of Information

The Nigeria governors’ forum (NGF) have refuted claims of hoarding palliatives meant for distribution in various states of the country.

In a statement by the head, media & public affairs of the NGF, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, the forum while pleading with the public to desist from spreading rumors said a lot of the information circulating the social media needs to be fact checked.

The statement said “the NGF reemphasizes and corrects the impression that palliatives found in warehouses that were broken into in Lagos and some other states were kept in storage for members of the society especially our vulnerable citizens.”

According to the statement, the erroneous impression in the public domain that these palliatives were hoarded is not just inaccurate, entirely erroneous and untrue but also mischievous, to say the least.

Until mid-October, when the NGF  had its last meeting, up to ten states had not participated in the flag-off ceremonies for the distribution of palliatives in their states. This was because the items meant for distribution in these states had not been completely received from CACOVID, the forum said.

The governors also explained that some other states that still had palliatives in their warehouses chose to keep a strategic reserve ahead of a projected second wave of covid-19.

The NGF assures all contributors to the palliatives that prior to the looting of these ware houses, states had kept full accounts of all the items received and distributed.
