Former Ekiti State Gov. Ayodele Fashola
Former Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has vowed to send former President of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo back to prison if he is given the mandate to rule the country.
According to the Nation, the former governor spoke on Tuesday while featuring on “Plus Politics”, a program on PlusTV Africa.
Fayose said this following Obasanjo’s comment in his condolence letter too late Senator Buruji Kashamu, where he alleged that the deceased used instruments of law and politics to evade justice but couldn’t avoid death.
He described the ex-president’s statement as regrettable, saying “Nigerians are watching for your end too”.
Responding to Fayose’s outburst, Obasanjo stated that people can mourn him the way they like after his death, urging Nigerians to learn from Kashamu’s lives and live well.
However, Fayose, in his reaction, said the former president has made hate speech and should be prosecuted by Buhari’s government.
He added that if one day he becomes the President of Nigeria, he will ensure that Obasanjo accounts for all the corrupt practices perpetrated during his eight-year tenure as Nigeria’s president.
“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.
