In a bid to follow up happenings in the country, the former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has replied Ayodele Fayose, former governor of Ekiti State, noted that he doesn’t care what people will say after his death.
“I don’t care what people will say about me when I’m dead”, he replied.
Daily News Nigeria obtained that Obasanjo made the statement due to attack from Ayodele Fayose over his condolence message to Late Senator Buruji Kashamu’s family and Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun.
Speaking recently, he said it is okay for people to mourn the dead souls but however, the living, including himself should draw right lessons from the dead people.
“In our community when I was growing and when people with bad character die, we mourn and bury. No eulogy or praise singing.
“An English saying goes this that urges us never to talk ill of the dead. But in this case, I didn’t talk ills of the dead.
“I only told us to draw lessons from the life and history. I’m not gloating over his death. It is sad to die and we must honour him”, he stated.
Stressed further that he said the right thing about Kashamu, also added, “I say my mind truthfully as I know them and in line with my convictions.
“People are free to say whatever they want about my comments and even after my transit but then, I’m still alive”, he rested.
